Would you like to make your own aromatherapy lotion blends? Purchase our lotion base, a bottle (see all our aromatherapy supplies), and some of our therapeutic quality essential oils for blending – you can use our pre-made blends, or make your own.
Tip: Never use more than a total of 2.5% essential oils in your base and avoid essential oils with skin irritating or sensitizing properties. Alternatively, buy our massage oil base instead of lotion base. It’s a bit easier to blend essential oils into base/carrier oils than into lotion base.
For more information on diluting essential oils in carrier oil for topical usage, check out this article and infographic by Dr. Joie Power:

The main preservative in our Lotion Base is Vitamin E which is an excellent natural preservative. In fact, we sell Vitamin E as a preservative. We also use a small amount in all of our essential oil massage blends, salves and sprays. Just a few drops of Vitamin E in a 4 oz. massage blend will double the shelf life.
