Prep Time 5 minutes


  • ½ cup Shea Butter mine had Myrrh and Frankincense in it
  • ¼ cup cocoa butter mine had vitamin E in it
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted


  1. Mix all ingredients together. You can mix them with a hand blender or just mix them by hand with a fork or spoon (I find the latter easier and less messy). Pour into a glass container with a tight fighting lid, like a canning jar. It’s very soft, almost melty at room temperature. But, if you keep it in the fridge it becomes more solid, not hard, just more solid. And, it’s so nice to put the cold lotion on in the morning.

Recipe Notes

Mine might be about SPF 7-12. And, it’s supposed to be reapplied every 1 to 2 hours (just like commercial sunscreens).
