Vanilla Lotion – DIY

When I say “this lotion is everything”, I mean it. Not only does it smell amazing, but it is super easy to make and free of all the crap conventional lotions contain.

The best thing about it is that it functions as my face cream, body lotion, aftershave, makeup remover and I even use it for my hair. All in all the perfect lotion.


Benefits of the ingredients:  

Shea butter is very moisturizing and soothing for the skin, while cocoa butter is high in antioxidants, which means it has anti-aging benefits and is frequently used as a stretch mark reducer. 

Vanilla extract is often used for the treatment of acne and it is great for reducing spots. Coconut oil is an essential ingredient for healthy skin growth and helps with keeping the skin smooth. Sweet almond oil helps to remove dark circles and inflamed skin and argan oil functions as a natural SPF and is an effective treatment to soothe and heal burns and bumps after shaving.


  1. Simply put all the ingredients in a glass bowl and heat them on the stove over boiling water.
  2. Once all the ingredients have melted, put them in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  3. After it has cooled down, whip it for about 2 minutes until it has the consistency of whipped cream.

Fill it in your favourite jar, done! Yup, it’s pretty easy.
