Lavender is a calming scent and is often used as an alternative therapy for sleeping and anxiety medication. And this lavender calming lotion does just that – it calms me down and helps me fall into a deep slumber each night. This lotion is especially helpful to calm and relax little ones (it’s safe for babies and children). I think you’re going to love it, too.
Best part? This lotion takes no more than 10-15 minutes to make and I bet you have all the ingredients at home already. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Homemade Three Ingredient Calming Lotion
Melt the coconut oil and beeswax together in a double boiler on your stove top. (I just use a measuring cup in a saucepan of water.)
Once melted, add lavender oil and remove from heat. Let cool completely.
Using an electric beater, whip the cooled lotion. This step may be unnecessary but I find that adding a little air to the lotion provides for a smoother consistency and a better mixture.
Your lotion is ready to go! Since there is no water added to this mixture, it should be shelf stable until the expiration date of the coconut oil that you used.
