Light & Luscious Body Lotion

I like using lotions that can be applied and then I can get back to my day without feeling like I jumped into a pool of oil! I recently ran out of the small bottle of lotion that I keep in my purse for using while out and about. Since that is a dilemma that needed to be solved quickly, I dived into the blog archives looking for inspiration.

I finally dug out and dusted off an old recipe that I have enjoyed over the years. I used the Light & Luscious Souffle recipe that was first released to our Recipe Collection in 2003 and then released on the blog in 2009! I made some adjustments to allow for the ingredients currently in my cupboard, but I’m very happy with the finished lotion.

Let’s go make some body lotion!

Weigh all ingredients except the additives (Liquid Germall Plus, Vitamin E Acetate and 21 Fragrance) into a microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add the additives once the temperature drops to approximately 120° F in the mixing bucket. Stir gently until completely mixed. Pour into containers and allow to cool completely before labeling.

Lotion Notes: This is a light lotion that is easily rubbed in and quickly absorbed. I’ve been able to rub this lotion over my arms and hands in under a minute and then go back to my Chinese character writing lessons without leaving oil smudge marks on my paper. Now, if I could just find the magic ingredient that would turn my handwriting from an illegible mess to handwriting almost as gorgeous as Tina’s in her Tea Tuesday cards then life would be good! 😉
