I started making my own body lotion after a nasty bout of eczema. I have shared it with friends and they come back asking for more!


  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp shea butter
  • 2 Tbsp almond or sesame oil (you can also use olive oil)
  • 1 tsp aloe vera gel


  1. Put it all in a blender and whip it up.
  2. Want to make it into a sunscreen? I’ve heard all you have to do is – add 2 tsp zinc oxide (if you can find it) – some people use baby cream.
