Easy Aromatherapy Lotion Recipe

Aromatherapy Lotion RecipeI was torn on what title to give this recipe because this recipe isn't made from scratch, and I'm not trying to be misleading. Making lotion from scratch is a bit complex (but definitely worth the effort), and I wanted to offer a recipe that beginners could enjoy making. So, we begin by working with an unscented lotion base and add essential oils. Very easy!

(In the future, I will likely add a complete lotion recipe to AromaWeb, but in the meantime, I recommend reading Making Aromatherapy Creams & Lotions: 101 Natural Formulas to Revitalize & Nourish Your Skin by Donna Maria Coles Johnson.)


  • 8 fl. oz. unscented hand or body lotion (sellers of natural products and aromatherapy products sometimes sell lotion bases, SLS-free unscented shampoo andshower gel)
  • 10 drops Patchouli
  • 20 drops Sandalwood
  • 5 drops Carrot Seed

Directions: The best way to blend the essential oils into the lotion is to pour the lotion into a bowl, add the oils and then mix very well. Once mixed, add the lotion back to the bottle using a funnel. Patchouli, sandalwood and carrot seed oils help aid dry skin. The patchouli and sandalwood oils have a lovely rich scent when blended together. The carrot seed oil is wonderful for the skin, but is a little harsh in aroma.

Enjoy experimenting with other essential oils in this recipe. But do be sure to heed the safety precautions for each essential oil that you use and avoid essential oils that are known to cause skin irritation.

To Use: Use as you would use other hand and body lotions.
