- Coconut oil (CO)
- Lavender oil (LO)
- Tea tree oil (TTO)
- Coconut oil
So after a night thinking about if my plan to attempt to make my own cream would work, I attempted it. And I'm so glad I did..
1. I measured out how much my containers hold. I have two containers and so I put about a cup of coconut oil into a double boil type pan. I hadn't let the water boil yet, just warm water and the heat just barely turned on. Coconut oil melts pretty fast so we don't want to "cook" the oil, just melt.
2. Once the oil has started to melt, I added the lanolin, and the two essential oils. If you pick to use tea tree oil, DO NOT PUT A LOT. A 2-4 drops max. TTO is extremely potent. My bottle of TTO doesn't have a control valve or a dropper so I had to wing it and used to much the first time I made the cream. The "smell" oil can be to your liking.
3.Once the everything has been melted and stirred you are ready to pour into your containers. I am upcycling old California Baby lotion containers and a use less container my sister gave me.
4. Once it hardens (I put it in the fridge for to cool it faster) stir it so that it will be nice and creamy.
