THIS ORANGE SCENTED LOTION WILL LEAVE YOU SOFT AND SMELLING FRESH
I love the fresh smell of oranges! So when my mom asked me if there was something that would help with her dry skin I immediately thought of making her a lotion with Orange oil. My skin soaks up oils and lotions like a sponge but it is nothing compared to how dry my mom’s skin is. So I tried to make an orange lotion that would have as many moisturizing benefits as possible. The cocoa butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil did the trick!
Here are the items that you will need before your start:
- Glass bowl
- Glass jar (my 10 oz. was too big for the amount that I made)
- Cocoa butter – Sweet, chocolate aroma
- Coconut oil – Distinct coconut aroma.
- Sweet almond oil – Sweet, nutty aroma. Rich in vitamin E and oleic acid.
- Young Living Orange Essential Oil
This was my first attempt at making lotion so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. The recipe that I used didn’t really tell me how much it would make so I got a 10 oz jar. My thought process was that I wanted something that was big enough for my mom to get her hand into. This jar serves that purpose but with a LOT of empty space. I decided to give it to her and make sure that she likes it and if she does I will triple the recipe next time.
DIY Orange Lotion recipe
- 1/2 cup cocoa butter
- 1/8 cup coconut oil
- 1/8 cup sweet almond oil
- 100 drops Young Living Orange Essential Oil
- Put the cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil in a glass bowl and melt it until it becomes liquid. I put mine in the oven on 350 and it was melted before it had even pre-heated. Stir to mix it all together.
- Put it into the freezer to harden. I put mine in for about 30 minutes. You don’t want it to be solid because you won’t be able to mix it.
- Add the Orange oil and mix it with your mixer until it is soft and fluffy.
- Put it into your glass jar and it is ready to use.
- Keep it out of the heat. Coconut oil turns to liquid when it get above 76 degrees.
