Chamomile flower lotion

I was going through my herbs cupboard today and noticed my dry chamomile flowers are nearly out of date, so I decided to use it to make a lotion. It is super good for skin.

Ingredients:

  • coconut oil 1 tbsp
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • sunflower oil (can you rapeseed oil) 5 tbsp
  • bee’s wax 1 tbsp
  • vitamin E oil 1 ts
  • Lavender essential oil 5/6 drops or more depending on how fragrant you wish the lotion to be
  • infusion of chamomile flowers – 3/4 tbsp or less depending on when you blend (important for liquid not to separate when blending, so add it carefully as the rest of the mixture blends)

Utensils:

  • saucepan
  • measuring cup
  • spoons
  • blender
  • plastic spatula
  • container for finished product
  • label

Method:

  • in a saucepan put coconut, olive and sunflower oils with bee’s wax and keep on heat till wax melts, then put aside
  • either infuse chamomile flowers with boiling water for 20 mins or boil them for 10 mins, strain liquid and put aside. you will only need 3/4 tbsp of it, so don’t use many flowers. If you have any liquid left over use it as a rinse over your hair, if you are blonde
  • put cooled oils in a blender and start mixing adding chamomile liquid slowly to ensure it doesn’t separate
  • once you have the right consistency for your lotion spoon it into a jar or a container of your choice
  • label it with the name and date produced

This lotion is super absorbent and makes the skin soft and silky. It was my first attempt today and I was more than happy with the result. My advice is to experiment again to see what happens and don’t worry if it doesn’t work the first time, you can always try again. It is such fun.

Many blessings
