Body Lotion

2 cups
1 cup aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon lanolin
1 teaspoon pure Vit E oil
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 to 3/4 ounce beeswax
3/4 cup almond oil
up to 1and 1/2 teaspoons essential oil or more to prolong scent ( I used a combination of lavender EO and rose geranium EO - scent is lovely and is great for skin)

Place aloe vera gel, lanolin, & vit E oil in blender or food processor.
Place coconut oil & beeswax in 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup, microwave on high 30 seconds, and stir with chopstick. Repeat heating in 10-second blocks until fully melted. Stir in almond oil, reheating if necessary. Run blender or processor at low to medium speed, then pour in melted oils in thin stream as if making mayonnaise. As oil is blended in, cream will turn white and blenderís motor will start to grind. As soon as melted oils are added and youíve achieved mayonnaise-like consistency, stop motor, add essential oil(s) and pulse-blend. Do not overblend. Transfer cream to glass jars while still warm, as it thickens quickly.
