- Lavender: Calming and soothing, aids sleep and relaxation

- Peppermint: Cooling and energizing, aids in headache relief

- Eucalyptus: Revitalizing, supports respiratory function

- Tea Tree: Antiseptic, aids in acne and blemishes

- Rose: Calming, supports emotional healing, and regeneration

- Lemon: Uplifting and energizing, aids in mental clarity

Feel free to mix and match these oils to create your custom blend.

Steps To Make Your Lotion With Essential Oils

  1. Measure out your base lotion: Start by scooping about 8 ounces (1 cup) of your choice of base lotion into a glass bowl or container.
  2. Add essential oils: Start by adding 18-36 drops of essential oils to your base lotion, depending on your desired intensity. It's always better to start with a smaller amount and add more if needed.
  3. Mix thoroughly: Use a spatula or spoon to mix the lotion and essential oils together until fully combined and smooth. Remember to always mix slowly and gently to avoid introducing air bubbles into the lotion, which can create an uneven texture.
  4. Label your lotion: Label your container with the type of lotion and essential oils you've used, so you can remember the blend you've created for future reference.
  5. Transfer to a storage container: Use a funnel (if needed) to transfer the lotion into a clean, airtight container for storage. Ensure the container you choose is opaque or tinted to protect the essential oils from sunlight exposure, which can diminish their potency over time.

How To Make Lotion With Essential Oils Example:

For instance, if you would like to create a soothing and calming lotion, you could select a lavender and chamomile essential oil mixture. Measure 8 ounces of an unscented shea butter lotion base into a glass bowl, and add 18 drops of lavender essential oil and 18 drops of chamomile essential oil. Mix thoroughly, label the container and transfer it into an amber glass jar for storage.
