THIS IS SOOO PRETTY! How To Make DIY Unicorn Body Lotion with easy, all natural ingredients. Recipe by The Makeup Dummy

Unicorn Body Lotion Recipe

A hint of glitter, a hint of sparkle ... this homemade body lotion will make you glow! 

This DIY recipe makes about 5 ounces of your very own unicorn body lotion.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (1.6 oz) avocado butter (or Shea butter)
  • 1/4 cup (1.8 oz) coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup (1.4 oz) grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon (0.05 oz) vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 3 different colors cosmetic mica

Instructions

  1. Melt avocado butter in a double boiler or on a low setting in the microwave.
  2. Take the melted avocado butter off the heat and stir in the coconut oil.

  3. Add grapeseed and stir to combine all of the ingredients. Pour in a mixing bowl and let the mixture cool down to room temperature.

    Cover the bowl and put in the fridge to speed up the process.

  4. Once the mixture has thickened, add the vitamin E oil. 

    You can also add a few drops of essential oil if you want at this point.

    I also added 1 teaspoon of pearl mica to the mixture.

  5. Use an electric whisk to whip the mixture into a lotion. Use a low setting. I prefer to use a mixer with a lid.

  6. Divide the whipped body lotion over three smaller bowls. 

    Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of a colored mica to each bowl. Stir well to evenly distribute the color.

    Scoop the colored lotions into a jar, layering different colors.

Recipe Notes

I recommend storing your homemade body lotion in a dark, airtight container.

This recipe is made without water, so it doesn't necessarily need a preservative. Keep all water out of the container and use clean fingers or a spoon or spatula to scoop the product out.

If you want, you can add a broad spectrum preservative to this recipe.
