DIY Christmas Hand Lotion with Essential Oils


DIY Christmas Hand Lotion with Essential Oils

Plant Therapy DIY Christmas Project Hand Lotion

I have already mentioned how this year I am trying to simplify my gift giving while maintaining homemade gifts for my family & friends. Lotion isn’t an easy thing to perfect, especially if you have water or water-based ingredients. If water is involved you must use a preservative, and that isn’t something I have had the time to read up on yet. So, to simplify the process, I choose one of our unscented lotions or creams and customized it for the gift recipient! Simple, right? Let’s take a look at how this would work…

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:

For each ounce of your chosen product, add 1/2 mL (or 10 drops) of essential oil. Be sure to use a stirring rod or spatula to fully incorporate the essential oils into the cream/lotion! This takes deceptively longer than you’d think, so keep stirring! Package and gift!

Nice options for lotion combinations would be (per ounce of your chosen carrier, lotion, or aloe):

Body Comfort Blend {great for sore muscles, sprains & strains} mix 4 drops Rosemary, 4 drops Black Pepper, 2 drops Vetiver

Sweetly Floral blend {a nice everyday scent, for use after bath/shower} 2 drops Chamomile Roman , 2 drops Lavender, 1 drop Neroli

Good Night blend {have a relaxing nights sleep} 4 drops Chamomile Roman, 2 drops Sandalwood

*You can always use one of our synergies, which are pre-blended for certain purposes, to add to your unscented lotion as well.
