How to make a moisturizer for the body

A few drops of vitamin E (or 2 capsules)
6 drops of lavender essential oil
Steps to make a homemade body cream:
Pour almond oil, shea butter and emulsifier into a stainless steel bowl. It is the oily phase. Put in another stainless steel bowl the hydrosol. It is the aqueous phase. Heat both bowls in a bain-marie (put them in the same saucepan, so that they are at the same temperature).
As soon as the emulsifier is melted and the water starts to simmer, take them out of the bain-marie.
Pour simmering hydrosol into the bowl of the oily phase and mix for 3 to 5 minutes. Add Vitamin E (this helps to keep your cream and is an excellent anti-aging) and the essential oil.
Pour the mixture into a perfectly clean jar or bottle. Keep cool for a month. You can add a preservative like Cosgard or Grapefruit Seed Extract to keep your cream longer.
Use vegetable and essential oils adapted to your skin type.
