Best Hand and Body Lotion Ever
These best, toxin-free hand and body lotion options ever will rock your world!
There are only two places where you can find truly safe options.
You’ll love them!
Option 1: Trusted Toxin-Free Source
There are many lotions from Young Living that we love!
The best part?
There are options for adults, kids, and babies!
The following are wonderful choices for adults:
1.) Genesis Hand and Body Lotion
2.) Lavender Hand and Body Lotion
3.) Regenolone Moisturizing Cream
4.) Sensation Lotion
1.) KidScents Lotion
Option 2: My Favorite DIY
The DIY recipe I love the most is below.
I choose it and Young Living lotions over anything I can buy in-store.
I know I use the only pesticide free essential oils and I can choose the combination of oils to make the smell and effect I like.
With in-store lotions, I’m getting scary synthetic versions of oils that do more harm than good, so to me, it’s worth it.
3/4 C Jojoba Oil
1/4 C Mango Butter
3 TBS Beeswax
3/4 C warm water
20 drops pesticide and synthetic-free Lavender Essential Oil
Melt jojoba, mango butter, and beeswax together.
Add to mixer.
Add water and blend, whipping until completely mixed.
Stir in Lavender.
Refrigerate 1/2 hour or until desired consistency is achieved.
How to Get Young Living in Your Life
You’ll notice I write about Young Living being the only brand I’ll trust.
You can always trust this as the only source of pesticide-free oils because of the Seed to Seal promise.

We make our skin youthful with lotion and body butters, but only if we aren’t pouring toxins into our bodies when we use it!
I’ve made a lot of homemade lotions but none like this. Going to try because I love jojoba! Also, have you ever tried washed ghee lotion? Good stuff.
Oh my! The sad part is on that list of lotions to avoid – some of those claim to be organic! It’s funny, because, when you’re describing how to make the lotion – I feel like I could actually envision what your lotion would SMELL like! And….well, I’m liking it! This sounds like a DIY I will definitely try out 🙂 Thank you!
Isn’t it amazing what we put on our skin? Thanks for this organic lotion! Mine was on your toxic list too.
I like to use coconut oil as a lotion during the cold months. It absorbs fast and leaves me smelling like a tropical vacation 🙂
With having kids, I’ve like natural things more and more. I’m going to have to try this one! Thanks for sharing.
I’m always looking for non toxic products. This is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing your story! I’m definitely going to make this lotion.

This sounds wonderful. I prefer not using the store brands, but I had not found a good lotion recipe.
Thi seems so easy to make. I have a friend who makes her own lotion all the time!

Can’t go wrong with jojoba oil!
This sounds fantastic! I haven’t ventured into the world of DIY lotions yet, but I love how simple and easy this looks. Despite all the patience testing!

I always use beeswax to my hair and lip. And it really make sense that it could be a great ingredient for lotion!
What a cool idea! I’ve never really thought about making my own lotion, but what a cool way to make a natural product!
Does need to be liquidy like body lotion you buy in the shop or more like a mousse?
It’s more like a body butter. It’s lovely!
So how did you get the blender clean? Can I use a hand mixer instead? I’m afraid I’ll ruin my VitaMix.
I use the DIY dish soap on this blog! It’s the best! My husband did ask that I use food in one blender and DIYs in another, so we have a cheap little blender for DIYs now 😉
I was patient but it never turned to whipped consistency like your pic. Added it to the jars and stuck in fridge. Hoping it whips up a bit more. I did add Shea butter since I didn’t have the Mango. He that didn’t ruin it. Also only had 1/2 cup of jojoba so I added 1/4 of grape seed.
Hi, Allyson! I’m sorry! It’s possible the different oils made a change in consistency. I wonder–do you like the feel of the lotion the way that it is? Does it still moisturize as well with the other oils instead of my recipe? If so, maybe not a total loss then? I hope!! <3
Do you add the mango butter when you are melting the beeswax or after when you are whipping it?
I melt the mango butter with the beeswax. 🙂
