Oatmeal Honey Shea Butter Lotion // Clean Living

 Oatmeal and shea butter are both moisturizing and nutritious to your skin. This is a great lotion to use to get rid of the dry spell after these cold winter months. Enjoy!


1/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp almond oil
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbsp emulsifying wax
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp Shea butter

Begin by soaking the oatmeal in the water for one to two hours. Once soaked, blend to a smooth texture. Next, heat the almond milk and oatmeal together on the stove top. Do not let it boil. In a separate pan, melt together the wax, oil, shea butter, and honey. Once completely melted, stir both mixtures together. Pour back into the blender and blend for three minutes. This will create a thick, consistent texture. Pour it into a sealable container. Once it cools the lotion with thicken even more. Use daily after showering for soft, silky skin!

If I wasn't anxiously awaiting summer's arrival before, I most certainly am now.

I love this series 'Saturdays' that Kinfolk released last year. You can see more of their videos here.


D + S // San Francisco Wedding

Love has this sweet, subtle way of making people do things. 

Things like flying in family from all across the globe to celebrate two people. Things like bringing photographers from Colorado and Kansas City to the beautiful city of San Francisco. Things like gathering a group of people to a tiny chapel on a hilltop, who begin the day with introductions and handshakes and end in hugs and tears. 

But most importantly, love makes people do things like stand hand in hand with the one your heart longs for. Promising to always be theirs for the rest of your existence. 

Oh love, what a dangerous, beautiful, adventure you are. I am eternally grateful for the things you make people do. 

yes, yes, yes.
