When your son has challenging skin and you question the ingredients in everything... you end up making your own.
1/4 cup Shea butter
1/4 cup cocoa butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 tbsp sweet almond oil
3 tbsp olive oil
10-20 drops essential oils of your choice
Melt all ingredients together in microwave or double boiler except essential oils. Mix until combined. Allow to cool until mixture turns opaque. Whip like you would whipping cream. May take 10 minutes. Mixture will turn white and get really fluffy. Add oils of your choice. Continue to whip for additional minute. Store in glass containers. Recipe makes approximately 4 cups of lotion. Apply after showering and will act as an emollient.
