I try to live a healthy lifestyle, I know it's not something I talk to much about here but it really is a part of my everyday living. I try to make small choices that really make a big difference in the grand scheme of things. I try to think about what I put in my body, on my body and the things we use around the house. But of course it's a balancing act and I do crave my Burger King chicken strips in my moments of weakness

One of those little steps is making my own lotion and it even ended up saving money so I think it's definitely worth a try. Now don't be intimidated this is really the easiest first steps to healthy living. 

Now if you're like us we live with a giant Cost-Co size container of coconut oil in our house. We use it for so many thing and this is no exception (I'll have to tell you all about those things in a later post).


- Coconut oil

- Essential Oil (optional)

yep you read right only 2 ingredients and one is optional

- Place coconut oil in a bowl (if it is really hard slightly soften it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time until slightly soft) 

- Blend until smooth and "whipped." I use my immersion blender but you can do this with a hand held or regular blender. 

- Add 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil if you would like and mix into whipped coconut oil.

- Place in cute jar with a lid and use as much as possible
