      • Shopping online is much like shopping at a brick and mortar store. When shopping with Essentially Natural you can simply 'Add to Cart' your selected items and quantities and 'Check Out' when ready. During the checkout process you can list your delivery address details (if you haven't created an account already), then choose your preferred delivery method, then select your preferred method of payment.
        • To add products to your cart, either use the categories to search for items, or use the search bar. Once you have found what you want, simply click on our gold 'Add to Cart' button to add any products to your shopping cart.
        • You can click on your trolley icon at any time to view items in your cart and be taken to the checkout page.
        • On the cart page you'll see an overview of the products in your cart. You can add or remove quantities or remove items as desired. The shopping cart will immediately update.  
        • Checkout is completed in 3 simple steps:
          1. 'Sign In' to your account, or 'Create an Account' or 'Checkout as a Guest' if this is the first time you're shopping with us. There are many advantages to creating a customer account; primary among these is ease of use of our shop in future, including tracking your order progress.

    lotion recipe

    I bought this hoping to make my own lotion. I found a recipe online and followed it exactly. After cooling, it looked gross. So I placed the whole lot in a pot and remelted it! It turned into a batch of liquid haha so I left it and once it was cool, it had formed 2 layers - a liquid and a solid layer! Soooooo out came my mixer ... I placed the "lotion layers" in a bowl and whizzed it for a minute.

    There you go, I had made an awesome lotion.

    I'm loving it! I use my lotion daily and it's way better than the store stuff. So I would recommend making your own.

    Great stuff

    One of the best emulsifiers out there!

    I use this in combination with the Polawax, and they create perfect, very stable emulsions. Couldn't recommend more and the glycerin content is definitely noticed!

    Very effective

    Currently using a mixture of this with Polawax and experiencing perfect emulsions. Super easy to use and remains stable even with temperature fluctuations.

    And the glycerin component is definitely not missed. This wax creates a more hydrating base lotion than other emulsifiers I've tried.
