If you can get a decent source of eggs, it really is so easy and tastes delicious. I would NOT recommend using regular, run-of-the mill store bought eggs. Most stores have organic eggs and some even have free-range eggs.
The basic recipe that I used for each of the videos is as follows.
2 egg yolks
1 T. lemon juice
1 T. white wine, rice or champagne vinegar
1. t. Dijon mustard
1 t. sea salt
dash of garlic powder, onion powder and sugar
1 1/2 cup of oil of your choice (I use a combination of sunflower and olive oil)
Just find the 'tool' you have in your home and watch that video. I now exclusively make my mayonnaise with my stick blender. I can have it mixed in as little as 28 seconds. I even make it in the jar I store it in. Super easy clean-up. I have made it several times in the blender and food processor. Both work equally as well. I have only made it by hand once, and it would not be my first choice as it is a little bit of work, but it can be done.
So, YOU HAVE NO EXCUSES to not make your own mayonnaise and make this simple healthy change. Okay, you know I am kidding right? I am not putting pressure on you, just trying to make it fun and easy. If you are knee deep in toddlers, pregnant, sick and/or overwhelmed, please, by all means go buy the mayonnaise from the store! I will still love you, and actually, find you very wise ;-)
The first two videos have my sweet two year old in them helping me. So cute. And the last video features my second oldest son doing all the work!
If you choose to make your mayo in a blender, this one is for you.

If you are so blessed enough to have a 'stick blender', watch this one.
Stick Blender Mayo (a.k.a. Immersion Blender)
Make sure you keep the stick blender down on the bottom of the jar until you get about 1/3 to 1/2 of the mixture emulsified. If you don't do this, it will not work. Ask me how I know!
