RECIPE: Silky Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Lotion
Enjoy the moisturizing benefits of shea butter, aloe, sunflower oil, and coconut oil in this easy-to-make lotion. This recipe uses Crafter's Choice Satin & Silk Lotion, and one of our most popular fragrances: Oatmeal, Milk & Honey. This is a great recipe for beginner lotion-makers! Note that this recipe only makes two bottles of lotion which allows beginners the opportunity to practice before making a large batch. This recipe was used in the Simple Secrets video "Filling Lotion Bottles."
