Things you will need

– Uncooked rice
– Water
– A few drops of vitamin E oil
– A container to store


* Since this lotion will be applied on the skin, you will first have to rinse some uncooked rice under running water, so as to remove the dirt.
* Next, you will have to boil some rice in a container, and once it becomes mushy, you will have to grind it till it becomes a fine paste.
* To this paste, you must add a few drops of vitamin E oil — the oil is believed to have many anti-aging properties.
* Body lotion needs to be fragrant, too, and for this, you can add any essential oil of your choice. Make sure everything has been mixed well.
* Once you have everything in place, you can move the ingredients to a container of your choice. Store it in the fridge for some days, and use whenever you need to.
