This lotion is a great, long lasting moisturizer


Water Phase
16 oz distilled water
1 oz aloe vera gel
.5 oz glycerin
.5 oz citric acid
Oil Phase
1.5 oz jojoba
1 oz sweet almond Oil
.5 oz shea butter
1 oz emulsifying wax
.5 oz stearic acid
1 tsp fragrance oil or 1/2 tsp essential oil

For the water phase add all ingredients and heat until citric acid is dissolved. Melt all ingredients for oil phase in a double boiler and hold temperature at 140 degrees (to temper the shea butter) for 20 minutes. Combine the two phases and mix with a stick blender or hand blender until thickened and cooled. Add fragrance and preservative and mix well. Pour into sterilized containers and allow to cool completely before capping. Enjoy!
