Easy Does It Coconut Cream

    Introduction

      Feel free to use the following recipe-

      Here is the specifics of my first attempt at following your posted lotion making directions. They were sooooo easy to follow. And the cream turned out great!

      This was made on the blog on January 19th 2010.

      Ingredients:

      .1 oz wt. Citric Acid
      .3 oz wt. Emulsifying Wax
      .5 oz wt. Liquid Glycerin
      .4 oz wt. Stearic Acid
      2 oz wt. Coconut Oil
      6.9 oz wt. Water

    Instructions:

    Combine all ingredients in microwave safe container. Heat until just melted. Wisk quickly until turns white and milky looking. Poured into approximately two 4 fl. oz containers and 1/2 oz left to play with. I didn't scent it because I prefer unscented lotions, but a few drops of Orange Essential would go nicely with the coconut oil.

    Thanks for the informative and easy directions. It is incredibly fun to "design" and make a cream that costs pennies and turns out wonderful on the first try. -Joy
