BODY BUTTER: Melt one ounce each of Cocoa butter and Jojoba oil over low heat. Add 5 drops of Wild Orange, 2 drops of Nutmeg, 8 drops of Rosewood and 5 drops of Vanilla Oleoresin. Blend together; it will thicken as it cools. Apply to dry skin or cracked feet. (2% dilution)
OILY SKIN: Add to a 2 ounce bottle: 4 drops of Wild Orange, 1 drop of Lemongrass, 4 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops of Lavender (French), then fill with witch hazel. Shake well before applying a couple of drops to a water-damp cotton ball and wiping oily areas around the nose, chin and forehead. Add a teaspoon of this blend to a small basin of water and soak a face cloth for larger areas. Relax and keep your eyes closed, as you apply the cloth to your entire face for a refreshing mask! (1% dilution)
BODY MIST: Add to a 4 ounce spray bottle: 20 drops of Wild Orange, 10 drops of Geranium, 5 drops of Cedarwood (Atlas) and 5 drops of Lavender, then fill with witch hazel, water or hydrosol. Shake well before spritzing on skin as desired. (2% dilution)
SUGAR SCRUB: To exfoliate the skin and smooth the feel and appearance, mix together: 6 drops of Wild Orange, 2 drops of Geranium, 3 drops of Frankincense and 4 drops of Patchouli. Add ½ cup of granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of Jojoba and 1/4 cup of Sweet Almond oils. Stir to mix well. Use as a last step in the shower, on wet skin. Gently massage 1 tablespoon at a time over the entire body or focus on thighs and buttocks. Rinse and blot skin dry to seal in moisture; revel in the aroma left on your skin.
CHEER: Add to a personal inhaler and inhale as needed: 5 drops of Wild Orange, 5 drops of Basil and 5 drops of Lemon. Or add Wild Orange to your Thera Lux Diffuser and diffuse for 30-60 minutes.
CLEANING SPRAY: To an 8 ounce spray bottle add: 40 drops of Wild Orange, 20 drops of Lemon and 30 drops of Tea Tree; fill with water. Shake well before each use.
LAUNDRY BOOSTER: Mix together in a large bowl: 1 teaspoon of Wild Orange and 3 cups of Borax washing soda. Stir to thoroughly mix and store in a wide mouth quart jar. Use 1 heaping tablespoon per load.
DRYER BALLS: Add 3-5 drops of Wild Orange to a wool dryer ball, or reusable dryer sheet to add a hint of aroma to your clothes.
