Coconut Lotion Recipe



 This is a very light lotion that melts as soon as you put it on your skin.  It is very moisturizing and smells great with no added fragrance or essential oils, the coconut oil in it smells great already.  I thought it was a bit oily and thin so next time I plan to alter the recipe below by increasing the beeswax to 2 tbsp. This has water and no preservatives so store in the refrigerated and use within 5 days.
