Aromatherapy Vanilla Orange Massage Oil

you can get vanilla bean pods here

Vanilla and Orange Massage Oil
  • 2 oz (60 ml) vanilla infused jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 20 drops Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
Blend the two oils in a 2 oz (60 ml) PET plastic bottle with a flip top. If you love this massage oil as much as I do, you can easily increase the recipe to make more. (I usually make 2 to 4 oz/120 ml each time.)

Lip Balm
a delicious and soothing vanilla and citrus lip balm

10 drops distilled Lime
5 drops Orange (Sweet)
1 oz Beeswax Pellets — Organic
1 oz Vanilla Infused Jojoba Oil — Certified Organic
2 oz Coconut Oil — Virgin and Organic
Lip balm tubes (size: about 5 mLs)
Lip balm tray
  1. Melt 1 oz beeswax and 1 oz vanilla jojoba in a double boiler.
  2. Once melted, add 2 oz coconut oil.
  3. Once melted, take off the stove and add the lime and orange essential oils.
  4. Stir and pour immediately (or use a pipette or dropper) into lip balm tubes (this is easiest if you have a lip balm tray for holding the tubes while you pour).
For a double boiler, try a Pyrex measuring cup rested in a soup pot filled halfway with water. This recipe makes about 24 sticks if you use a 5 mL size tube. How many tubes you fill will vary according to how high you fill them, and how exact you (and your scale) are when you weigh your ingredients.

Vanilla and Lavender Salt Scrub
a skin soothing shower scrub

3 oz salts (I like 2 oz of pink Himalayan salts mixed with 1 oz of Epsom salts)
3 oz vanilla jojoba
1 oz dried organic lavender flowers
15 drops Lavender essential oil
4 oz jar
  1. Grind all the salts and the lavender flowers in a small coffee grinder until they are a fine texture. (I have a separate grinder reserved for bath salts, as coffee tasting like vanilla and lavender bath salts can be a bummer first thing in the morning!)
  2. Add the vanilla jojoba to the salts and stir.
  3. Add your essential oils and mix.
