Now that summer is upon us, it seems that the sun is just soaking up all of that lovely moisture in our skin. I recently found a great recipe for homemade lotion that contains only five ingredients, and they are all readily available. The best part about this lotion is that you can incorporate various flowers and herbs that you have growing right in your backyard.
The recipe can be found in this book and it is so easy to make that the girls and I were able to whip it up in no time yesterday. The scent we tried this time is lavender vanilla patchouli, and we are really happy with the result. We have also made lavender and lavender rosemary and all have turned out great! (Can you tell we have a lot of lavender in our garden? 🙂 )
