Did you know that most skin creams contain Phthalates. In addition to potentially causing cancer, phthalates fall into the category of obesogens. Obesogens are believed to work in the body in three different ways…to make you FAT!!!
How? They increase the starchy capacity and number of fat cells, change the metabolism and change the way the body regulates hunger and fullness.
Scary to think that your body lotion can be making you fat, isn’t it?
Don’t worry – I’ve got you covered. This is my go-to lotion – and one that everyone is always asking me to make for them.
The Quality of The Essential Oils You Use Matters!
I’ve tried most every essential oil company out there, and I am thrilled to recommend Plant Therapy as my preferred company!
After looking closely at the quality, purity, and ethics of so many companies, I’ve fallen in love with both the company and their oils. They are serious about safety and go to great lengths to test every single batch to ensure purity!

DIY Lavender Body Lotion
Adapted from Weekend Wonder Detox
3/4 cup sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons beeswax, shaved
30 drops lavender essential oil
1 cup water
16 ounce glass jar
Add oil and beeswax to a small saucepan and heat over low heat until
the wax dissolved. Remove from heat. Allow to cool for 2 minutes
and then add essential oil.
Place the water in a blender with the lid on but the hole in it left
open. With blender running, add the oil-wax mixture slowly allowing
it to emulsify.
Pour into glass jar and store in a cool place.
