The following is a recipe for making Lavender Body Lotion all of your own. It's very quick, cheap and easy to follow steps of how to make body lotion .

Melt 1/2 an ounce of beeswax together with 100 ml Lavender oil. Do this in a pan that is on a very low heat to ensure that the mix does not burn.

If you are allergic to beeswax or bee products, replace the beeswax with another Emulsifier.
