How to Make Edible Lotion

By Michelle Barry

An edible lotion is a romantic gift suitable for Valentine's Day, an anniversary or simply treating your loved one to a special and intimate evening together. Making your own edible lotion is both budget friendly and more personal than purchasing one. By making your own lotion, you can customize the taste and texture to your liking. Be sure to choose flavors that your loved one enjoys as well.
