Easy Natural Lotion for Beginners

If you’ve been wanting to dive into making your very own easy natural lotion, start here! This post is the first in a series on how to create your very own lotions. Today I’ll teach you how to make a basic lotion, and in upcoming posts I’ll teach you how to customize it (and any other lotion, really!) in all kinds of different ways (thicker, thinner, richer, lighter, and more!). Every instalment in this series will have both a blog post and a video to ensure I’m sharing as much information as possible; please make sure you go through both parts of each instalment to get the full benefit of this free series ❤️ Let’s dive in!

Winter Solstice Oil-Free Facial Moisturizer

Today is the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere—the shortest, darkest day of the year, but also the turning point towards longer days (tomorrow will have a whole 5 seconds more daylight than today!). I’ve shared several winter solstice themed projects over the years, always right around now, and I’m excited to add another one to that collection today. This Winter Solstice Oil-Free Facial Moisturizer is a richly moisturizing fluid emulsion, featuring some of my favourite humectants and an ultralight blend of oil-free emollients. It feels incredible on the skin, vanishing within seconds and leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated.
