I use lotion like it’s going out of fashion. I am constantly washing my hands as I am around my two little ones a lot and they can get rather sticky! Every time I wash them I put this lovely smelling lotion on and my hands are feeling wonderfully soft.
I also thought – why not add a bit more happiness into my day and add one of my favourite scents ever, orange to this lotion. This lotion smell beautiful because I’ve used the best quality Young Living orange in the world and that makes all the difference. this oil was so much more powerful than any other orange oil you’ll have ever used. You literally only need one drop at a time! Buy your Orange essential oil here or learn how to save 24% wholesale here
This recipe is smooth and creamy, and actually quite thick. So keep it in a jar, and scoop a bit on to your hands whenever you need a burst of creamy happiness on your hands.
My whole life changed when I started using Young Living essential oils. I started with a premium starter kit which contains 11 different oils.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie

I was wondering if this lotion leaves a greasy feeling on your skin. I love the idea of using orange oil. I put some in a lip balm I made and just love using it.
Hi Nancy, so long as you only use a little it rubs in very well and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy. x
great. I will give it a try when I used up the last batch of lotion I made. thanks
Should the ingredients in this recipe be weighed or can I use a liquid measuring cup?
i’m surprised this recipe calls for 100 drops of Orange. That is the most oil I have ever seen in a recipe! Are you sure you didn’t mean 10? Or is the point to use an entire bottle.. ?
Katherine Natalia @ Green Thickies says
Yes it would be an entire small bottle and a third of a larger bottle. Yes it’s a lot but when you’re used to applying oils to your skin neat, this is a lot weaker.
Hi, if I want to make a bigger batch, do I just double/triple the ingredients or is there a separate formula for each? I’m guessing the EO amount will not change.
Katherine Natalia @ Green Thickies says
Yes I would increase all of the ingredients including the EO.
