Peppermint Hand Lotion

As well as rustling up a lime and coconut salt scrub today, I’ve also made a peppermint hand lotion.

You can swap the peppermint essential oil out for a different scent if you wish. Unlike with the salt scrub, the coconut oil scent doesn’t come through because the Shea butter puts a stop to that!

Peppermint Hand Lotion

You will need:

  • 1 x kilner jar
  • 1 x large bowl
  • 1 x spatula
  • Stand mixer or electric hand whisk
  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of shea butter
  • Essential oil

Step 1: Warm the shea butter in for 30 seconds in the microwave

Step 2: Add the shea butter and room temperature coconut oil to a large bowl

Step 3: Whisk the two together for about 10 minutes. Every minute or so you’ll need to use a spatula to get the mix off the walls of the bowl

Step 4: Stir in some essential oil. Add as much as desired. You might find you need quite a bit to get the scent as strong as you want it

Step 5: Transfer the cream to the Kilner jar

Enjoy, and let me know if you try it out!
