Today I will …

make my own body lotion.

Some time ago, I got to know Lauren, well, not really, but I found her website and heard a lot about her. Lauren is probably one of the somewhat wellknown people when it comes to the ‘zero waste’ movement. I have gone through her website and viewed some videos, and got pretty excited and inspired. It’s great to have such examples, and with the Internet all of these examples are suddenly within reach!

Homemade body lotion is also quite cheap, says Lauren.

One of the things she does to minimize her waste production, is making her own body lotion. Furthermore, this lotion is purely natural and thus healthier than the chemicals you usually put on your skin. Luckily, I don’t have to invent everything myself and I can just use her method. So today that’s exactly what I’m going to do!

It can be a bit of a hassle to find the right ingredients, but after that it’s very simple, if we are to believe her! The video below shows you what to do step by step. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Psstt … Would you like to do this? I would let the mixture warm up just a tiny bit after cooling. That way your mixer/food processor doesn’t have to work as hard to whip the whole thing.
