As with all cosmetics and beauty products, we prefer having them homemade. Not only can we control what goes in them and pay an affordable price, but we can also make them in no time! And I mean that literally. Some of these DIY lotions are as easy as whipping some coconut cream and adding a few drops of essential oil. That easy! And it doesn’t hurt that this makes them fully customizable to one’s taste.
