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!
