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.

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

Uplifting Lotion Recipe
- 1/4 cup cocoa butter (But it here)
- 1/8 cup coconut oil (Buy it here)
- 1/8 cup sweet almond oil (Buy it here)
- 100 drops of Young Living Orange essential oil (Buy it here) or learn how to save 24% wholesale here
* 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.
- In a glass jug, melt down your cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil until they become a liquid.
- Put it in the freezer to harden, for 20 minutes. Don’t leave it any longer or it will harden too much.
- 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.
- Spoon it into a glass jar. It will keep for months.
- Use as required

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
