Homemade Grapefruit Lotion

This easy homemade foot lotion is the perfect end to a hot soak in the tub and very soothing for the dry, cracked skin on our feet! 
Author: Shelby Stover


  • ¼ cup  Shea butter
  • ¼ cup  Coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon  Beeswax
  • 13-15 drops Grapefruit essential oil


  • In a small glass jar, place the butter, oil, and beeswax.
  • Bring a small pot of water (about an inch) to a rolling boil and place the jar in it.
  • Heat the ingredients until everything is completely melted (especially that beeswax!).
  • Remove the jar from the heat and whisk in the essential oil.
  • If using unfiltered beeswax, strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer while pouring it into a holding container.
  • Let sit on the counter for 24 hours to firm up and the use frequently to show your feet some love!


Makes a little over 1/3 cup.
