For a while now I have wanted to make my own moisturizing lotion. The recipe I found needs to be blended in a blender. OK, I have a blender, no problem right? But the recipe includes beeswax. Problem. I know from making my own lip balm that beeswax is difficult to clean out. I didn’t want my kids’ next smoothies to be waxy! So I waited….
Then I started to see rumors on the internet about using a regular mason jar with your blender. Really? I have to admit I was nervous to try but this would solve the waxy blender problem.
Today I made my lotion AND used a mason jar with my blender!
I used a regular pint sized mason jar. The wide mouth jars are too wide. My blender is an Osterizer 12 speed blender that is about 14 years old.
At this point, I’m not going to lie, I was a little nervous. To be on the safe side, I covered the whole blender with towels. In case it broke, I figured this would contain the glass somewhat.
Basically work in reserve to get everything out of the jar when done blending.
I love this method, since you could actually make something then store it in the same mason jar!
Have you ever done this? Would you even try?
