Helpful Travel Tip: Getting your Lotion into those Travel-size Bottles

Every wondered… IMG_2286I was recently packing my bags to head to Nashville for the 2015 Beachbody Coach Summit, and I had just bought this new body cream (I usually only use coconut oil with a drop or two of essential oil, but I decided I wanted to try something different in the hotter summer months). Well, now I was faced with a bit of a problem, I couldn’t just “melt” my lotion to be able to pour it into the travel-size bottle like I used to do with my coconut oil…

I tried many different “techniques” to get my body cream into that tiny bottle (I will not bore you with my bizarre methods, but I will tell you I had to throw away some chopsticks and numerous napkins…)
But then I remembered seeing some piping work being done on one of the many cooking shows we love watching…and TA-DA!! Problem solved!

Here is what you need:

  • a ziplock bag
  • a pair of scissors
  • the travel bottle
  • your lotion of choice
  • a spoon

STEP 1: Spoon some of your lotion into the corner of the ziplock bag.
STEP 2: Cut off a TINY piece of the corner of the ziplock bag to make a little hole.
STEP 3: Gently squeeze the lotion into the travel bottle. You might need to stop and tap the bottle to make sure you are filling it without any air bubbles.
