Good Night Sleep Rub

Sticking to a nightly routine is essential part of daily unwinding for kids and adults.  Before getting cozy with warm pajamas apply this Creamsicle lotion kids are sure to love.

1oz Shea Butter
1/2 oz Coconut Oil
1/2 oz Sunflower Oil (or other light liquid oil)
Wild Orange Essential Oil

Melt the Shea butter in 20 second increments in a microwave safe glass container. Once melted stir in the 1/2oz of coconut oil until it dissolves. Finally add your liquid oil. All this to cool and harden slightly. You can speed up the process by putting the container in the freezer. Just keep checking that it isn't completely solid.  
You want to whip the lotion with a utensil or handheld mixer that WILL NOT touch food again. When it's semi solid whip the lotion.  Add 10 drops of Wild Orange and whip again.

Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis) warms the body and spirit, lifting moods, creating joy, and sparking creativity. You can use it in a diffuser or in a lotion, and it is safe for adults and kids. Orange oil contains 85-96% D-limonene, which is both environmentally friendly and powerful as a cleaner. Plus, the smell is invigorating.
