Homemade Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion (without Coconut Oil):

1.½ cup (4oz) shea butter 
2. 2 TB skin-nourishing oil, such as: jojoba, avocado, apricot, or sweet almond oil. This can even be coconut or olive oil. Almond oil is my recommendation since it feels the best on the skin for most people.
3.(optional) 10 drops drops lavender essential oil 
4.(optional) 5 drops rosemary essential oil 
5.(optional) 3 drops carrot seed oil 
6.(optional) 3 drops tea tree essential oil
1.In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt the shea butter. Add in the nourishing skin oil. Turn off the heat.
2.Pour into a bowl (I use my Kitchen-Aid bowl). Place in the freezer and allow to cool and return to a solid (not hard) form. This takes about 15-20 minutes. Don't freeze the mixture.
3.Once "solid"-looking remove from the freezer. Add in the essential oils and carrot seed oil. Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, whip the mixture until soft and looks like buttery whip cream. This takes just a minute. Don't over-whip. Scoop into a jar and store at room temp. Apply to both body and face as desired.
