Uplifting Lotion Recipe

Uplifting Lotion Recipe

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.

What is so great about Orange oil?

It is rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene and aids in maintaining normal cellular regeneration.

* You can replace the cocoa butter and the almond oil with coconut oil if you like, but this may melt during hot weather so you might need to keep it in the fridge.

  1. In a glass jug, melt down your cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil until they become a liquid.
  2.  Put it in the freezer to harden, for 20 minutes.  Don’t leave it any longer or it will harden too much.
  3. Once the mixture is solid again, but not too hard, add the orange essential oil.  Whip it up using an electronic whisk, a food processor with a whisk attachment, a handheld whisk and a bit of elbow grease until the cream is soft and fluffy.
  4. Spoon it into a glass jar. It will keep for months.
  5. Use as required

If you are new to essential oils, I recommend you starting with a premium starter kit by Young Living.  You get 11 oils and a diffuser as part of this kit.  Read more about it here.

  1. 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.

  2. Should the ingredients in this recipe be weighed or can I use a liquid measuring cup?

  3. 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.. ?

  4. 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.
