Do you need extra skin support during the winter months? I have always something extra during the winter, and now I have 2 of my 3 kids that also need the extra support. I have struggled to find a lotion that works well without burning! And the best part about this recipe is this is a Crockpot Lotion Recipe, so you don’t have to worry about double broilers and standing over a stove while it melts. You can just dump it in the Crockpot and forget about it for an hour!
My poor little girl has had so many times I’ve tried a new lotion (Even the sensitive skin ones) that just burns her skin! It’s awful!
I finally decided about a year ago to try making my own lotion! It is Amazing! Keep in mind this is a very greasy lotion which works really well. It’s great for my daughters legs and back and also her hands.
I love that it only has 3 main ingredients because I can see and control exactly what’s in the lotion and going on her skin and since there’s no alcohol involved it doesn’t burn when applied!
I also love adding Lavender to my lotion once it’s cooled, the heat can take away the therapeutic properties so don’t add the essential oils when it’s super hot. (You can also just use Coconut Oil and Lavender that’s what we use on my son and it’s awesome!)
You can make this lotion in the Crock Pot but I recommend using the Slow Cooker Liners! This is a oily blend so it’s really hard to get out of your Crockpot and with the liners it’s SUPER EASY to clean up!
Crockpot Lotion Recipe
Ingredients for Crockpot Lotion
- 1 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1 Cup Shea Butter (Or you can use Cocoa Butter)
- 1/2 Cup. Beeswax Pellets
- 2 tbsp. Vitamin E Oil
- 10-12 drops of Lavender Essential Oils
How to Make Crockpot Lotion –
- Combine the first 4 ingredients in a Crock Pot on low until everything is melted completely
- At this point you can pour into a mold and make lotion bars, or pour into a bowl and allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes
- Once the Lotion mixture is cooled, add in the Essential Oil and beat on high speeds with a mixer.
- This will keep the lotion from hardening, then you can store it in an airtight container
