Hello, readers! Its time for the first DIY post! I hope that you enjoy.
When I was on my vacation, I saw coffee scented lotion at a store, but it was way too much money! I was confident that I could make something almost exactly like it, but cheaper. So after a bit of experimenting, I came up with a recipe that actually worked!
- Coconut oil
- Instant coffee
- Measuring cups
- Small Mason Jars
Step 1: Add half a cup of coconut oil into the bowl and stir until it’s smooth.
Step 2: Brew a small cup of the instant coffee and pour a tablespoon into the coconut oil.
Step 3: Stir the mixture and then add a small pinch of instant coffee (unbrewed,) and stir it in. It’s not supposed to dissolve.
Step 4: Spoon it into your small mason jar and set it in the refrigerator for an hour. If you take it out and it feels solid, you’re done!
To use it, put only a small bit on. Rub it in, and if it’s too greasy, wash it off. But don’t worry, it will still work!
You can also decorate your jar by tying twine, raffia, or ribbon around the top.
Here’s how my lotion turned out:
Isn’t it cute? These would make a great present for someone.
