My favorite DIY lotion

I love this lotion. It’s full of all sorts of goodness that help remove free radicals, promotes collagen restoration, and helps with scars and stretch marks as well as ingredients to promote calmness and relaxation.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup grape seed oil
2 tbsp calendula flowers
1/4 tsp powdered ginger root
1  tbsp chamomile flowers
1 tbsp lavender buds
1 cup shea butter
1/4 cup cocoa butter
1 tsp lavender essential oil

In a small pot, boil about a cup or two of water. Place a glass jar in the pot and in the jar, combine the grape seed oil and ginger, flowers, and buds. Lower heat to barely boiling and let sit for about 30 minutes to infuse the oil. Using a cheese cloth or mesh strainer, strain out the buds and put the oil in a new glass jar. Put the oil only jar into the pot and add butters. Stir occasionally and heat until melted through. Once melted, remove jar from heat. Allow it to cool and mix in lavender oil. Refrigerate until hardened and then mix thoroughly to give it a nice texture.
