Homemade Whipped Coconut Oil Cooling Lotion
Are you ready for summer?
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 for so many different reasons, but it also makes an amazing all-natural moisturizer – it is full of antioxidants and is super hydrating, soothing, 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, but you can use any you prefer (or none at all). That’s what I love about these recipes — you can totally make them based on your preferences!
Whipped Coconut Oil Cooling Lotion Recipe
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 F so it does not melt.
