Making Lotion

Memorial Day weekend and it's raining here in Portland. I spent most of Saturday making lotion and soap.

To make the Coffee Facial and Body Lotion I start by melting the oils (olive, avocado, castor, and shea butter) and the emulsifying wax. I then heat the coffee/aloe vera gel/glycerine mixture.

Finally they are mixed together using a hand blender until the mixture cools. The germaben and essential oils are added last. It's really pretty simple.
