I am really glad to be able to help...

On top of this you will need 1% (or whatever is the high end your preservative's recommended usage & 1% fragrance or essential oils.

Has anyone tried this with any other kind of milk? Rice Milk, Coconut Milk, Almond Milk....etc...

I'm going to try it with Coconut Milk, but thought I'd ask if anyone has already done it

I made an oat milk lotion a while back. It went bad rather quickly. I used homemade oatmilk and used it for half my water amoumt. I think there was just too much botanical matter for the lotion to handle. I would think coconut milk would be ok, especially store bought. Please follow up if you can, I would like to know how it works out for you.

Okay!

Well I am rather new to lotions. I've stuck to just salves and lotion bars. But my personal consumption spending on facial creams led me to want to try my own. I mean I make us everything else so.....why not?

A certain Smush company makes a lotion I like, with almond milk.

I love coconut milk. So I tried it. I used a slightly different recipe that I've been playing with (and my other lotions were HORRENDOUS). So I compared it to swifts basic recipe and tweaked mine. After all she's a chemist, and then I read her instructions better this time.

Because 1) I wasn't heating and holding my water phase correctly. Therefore, chunkys. Yucky. 2) I was whisking by hand. As a soaper I love the immersion blender - I should have known better. Silly Consuela.

So. Proud to say this is my first successful lotion.
I used honey and glycerine. Coconut milk and water. Vanilla infused the distilled water. Cherry Kernel, Grapeseed & Apricot Kernel oils.
And used germall for my preservative. Some benzoin oil for the soft vanilla smell, and 3 drops of vanilla absolute. It was a small batch. About 2-3oZ.

And...

Well sh*# if my lotion didn't turn out creamy and smelling divine. I can't stop smelling the patch I rubbed on my arm.

Oh can't post pics from my phone? I'll upload then edit to add them.

Thank you!

I am very very happy with the way this lotion turned out! Now...I'll see how long it lasts! I'll probably burn through it before it can go bad - even though I used a preservative (I'm still new to the whole preservative thing, so this is all new to me).
