If you like a lotion not quite as thick as body butter, this is your recipe. Made from aloe vera, coconut oil, vitamin e, beeswax and your favorite essential oil, it glides over the skin and is very quickly absorbed. The hands are really soft, but not greasy or oily. You can use whatever scent you want, or leave it out completely. Peppermint will help energize you. If you are looking for a more soothing lotion, try lavender. Do not be afraid to blend your fragrances together. A vanilla-lavender blend would be nice here, too.
