I love this lotion! Though it's a bit greasier than conventional lotions, the benefits are many. Great information on tallow lotion can be found on The Weston A. Price website.
What you need:
1 11 ounce jar of Epic Beef Tallow (from Thrive)
1 to 2 ounces extra virgin olive oil
Your choice of essential oils (I have used geranium with lavender and also lemon and orange)
2 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup
What you do:
In a glass Pyrex 2 cup measuring cup, scoop out all of tallow
Place in a pan filled with about 1 inch of water
Heat on medium until tallow is melted
Let tallow cool
Add 1 to 2 ounces of olive oil and desired amount of essential oils
Mix thoroughly and store in glass containers (an empty Organic Valley ghee jar is perfect)
Place in refrigerator to harden a bit, but not too much
Caution: Be prepared for dogs to lick your legs. ;-) They love this stuff!
