DIY Body Lotion

After failing twice, I finally have succeeded in making body lotion! It is based on Karen Gilbert’s vetiver and vanilla body lotion, except that it is unfragranced and the macadamia nut oil is replaced by sweet almond oil. The consistency is just perfect and the lotion  has just the light scent of its ingredients. The perfect Christmas gift for my mum!

By the way, the first times I failed at mixing temperatures and using the wrong emulsifier. For the successful lotion, I used glyceryl stearate.
