At Home Natural Lotion Therapy
Dr. Drew Ordon: We have one more treatment, correct?
Chris Kleronomos: Not really treatment more of an at home--.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Something you can do and this is your lotion therapy.
Chris Kleronomos: Correct.
Dr. Jim Sears: Now I like to buy that.
Chris Kleronomos: This is just a way for people at home to make a homemade lotion without any chemicals.
Dr. Drew Ordon: I see there are two brushes here, right?
Chris Kleronomos: That’s right. You can slather Jim up and use your gun.
Dr. Drew Ordon: One for you.
Chris Kleronomos: Absolutely.
Dr. Drew Ordon: And one for me alright, what do we do next?
Chris Kleronomos: So this is the final product but I'm going to slide behind you and show you. So at home you can make this without any chemicals. You can make them in different scents, different things and it’s got very simple ingredients, water, a fixed oil, in this case we’re using olive oil but you can use avocado or grape seed, and some shaved beeswax and some tea. Again, in this case we’re using green tea but you can use Jasmine or any scented tea that you’d like.
So what you do is you take your fixed oil, some shaved beeswax then in a double boiler method and you just go ahead and melt that. And then from here, can you see how it’s starting to just harden on this surface here?
Dr. Drew Ordon: I can see that.
Chris Kleronomos: That’s about the consistency we want, and then I'll add a little vitamin E and --
Dr. Drew Ordon: This is your special formula.
Chris Kleronomos: It is.
Dr. Drew Ordon: It’s just like you’re mixing some stuff.
Chris Kleronomos: Correct, and then essential oil of your choice. In this case we use lavender.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Okay.
Chris Kleronomos: And so our tea is already in the blender, okay and we’re going to take this. We’re going to turn our blender on here. First, let that get going and we’re going to add—and you’ll see it starts to thicken up and emulsify, okay. As we add it, here it’s starting to bug down.
Dr. Drew Ordon: So you’ve made your same blend right there?
Chris Kleronomos: Correct and this is your final product.
Dr. Drew Ordon: Well I want to get to work. What will I do?
Chris Kleronomos: Slather it on and enjoy.
Dr. Drew Ordon: So where do you need this treatment Jimbo?
Dr. Jim Sears: You start on my leg because that’s full those marks.
Dr. Travis Stork: So, Chris this is something--I like the idea as lotion. This is something anyone can make at home, right?
Dr. Lisa Masterson: Right.
Chris Kleronomos: Correct, it’s very simple. It’s very safe. All the products you know you can buy all organic products.
Dr. Drew Ordon: How does it feel Jim?
Dr. Jim Sears: Nice.
Dr. Travis Stork: You know, very interesting treatments.
