Just in time for all the warm and sunny weather that will soon be upon us, here is a super easy recipe for DIY whipped coconut oil cooling lotion. Not only is coconut oil great to cook with, but it also makes an amazing all-natural moisturizer – it is full of antioxidants and is super hydrating and healing when used on skin.

And did you know that when you whip coconut oil, the consistency changes from a clear solid to a luxurious white body butter?! This recipe combines the healing power of coconut oil with the cooling effects of aloe; I also opted to add lavender and peppermint essential oils.

Whipped Coconut Oil Cooling Lotion Recipe

1 cup Coconut Oil, solid
1/2 cup Aloe Gel
18 drops Essential Oils (I used Lavender & Peppermint)

Place solid coconut oil, aloe gel, and essential oils in a mixing bowl. Use either a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid and mix on medium high for about 5-8 minutes until you see the that the coconut oil is turning white and forming peaks. Scoop into a container or jar and enjoy! Store below 75 degrees so it does not melt.

In addition to making a great cooling moisturizer, this lotion will also provide some natural relief from itching due to bug bites, poison ivy, and hives. Have you tried making lotion from coconut oil before?
