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!

My hands are very prone to dryness so every time I wash them I put this upfliting lotion on and my hands are feeling less and less dry every day.

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.  Not only does this lotion smell beautiful but because I’ve used Young Living essential oils in it, it means that these oils actually work!  Not just any old Orange, the best quality therapeutic 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.

Uplifting Lotion Recipe


* 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.

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.
