Rich Creamy Butter Lotion Recipe Recipe


Thick creamy lotion, can also be used as a hand cream when made w/ less water or more stearic acid, great for dry, itchy, or sensitive irritated skin, also great for reducing stretch marks when made w/ EMU Oil


2.50 oz. Hemp Oil
4.00 oz. Vegetable Glycerin
2.70 oz. Emu Oil
2.30 oz. Sweet Almond Oil
2.50 oz. Shea Butter
2.50 oz. Mango Butter
1.00 oz. Vitamin E 1000 IU Oil
2.50 oz. Calendula Oil
2.00 oz. Stearic Acid (may add less for thinner lotion)
3.50 oz. Emulsifying Wax (way cool product that binds water to oil and keeps it from seperating!)
0.50 oz. Grape Seed Extract (GSE) as a natural preservative
3.50 oz. Rose Water or Floral Water of your choice
32.0 oz. Aloe Vera Gel or distilled water
Great Patchouli Scent Blend:
1.00 oz. Patchouli Essential Oil
0.30 oz. Lavender Essential Oil
0.30 oz. Rosewood Essential Oil
0.30 oz. Tea Tree Oil
2.50 oz. Coconut Fragrance Oil


I chose these essential oils for their specific medicinal purposes that are great for the skin. The coconut fragrance oil balances the essential oil blend and tones it down yet still giving the Patchouli the middle note while also toning down the coconut fragrance and leaving it as the base note.
Heat the oils, butters, and waxes on low until everything has melted, (I use a double boiler so you can't burn it or boil it), then cool to about 140 degrees. Heat the aloe water and rose water mixture to about 140 degrees as well. Put the oils into a large mixing bowl and start mixing on slow while slowly adding the water mixture until all water is added, then add EO's & FO's and GSE and blend some more at a higher speed, you want to keep blending until mixture is about body temp (around 97 to 98 degrees). Pour into jars or pump lotion bottles and continue to shake periodically until the mixture becomes creamy and thick, this will prevent any seperation of the oils and water.
