Yesterday while we were at Whole Foods I figured out a way to make my own lotion. I regularly buy shea butter from a company called Now Solutions. Shea butter doesn’t have a smell. Well, it can actually smell a bit greasy but it does wonders for my skin. I add a little essential oil to my pot and whip it up with my beauty stick so I can have a little essence of rose or ylang ylang. Yesterday I saw patchouli and tangerine essential oils so I bought both and mixed them into a fresh pot. It smells lovely! I’m in heaven and so is my skin.
We were at swimming class one day when a mom walked in smelling so good I had to ask her what she was wearing. She couldn’t remember but said it was her lotion not perfume because she never wore any. She did remember that it was a patchouli and orange smell but she couldn’t remember the brand. The smell has stayed with me ever since. It was soft and elegant without being over whelming.
