Jubilant Summer Island Lotion

Sometimes I get inspiration from collecting all of the ingredients for another project. When I made Lorraine’s Vanilla Coconut Passion Lotion I had to look through the fragrance collection in the blog kitchen. As I searched for the Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil, I ran across a 1 oz bottle of Tahitian Vanilla. Hmn. I started to wonder. What would a blend of Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut smell like? Really good, it turns out. A blend of sweet island flora, coconut and a sensual vanilla. This is definitely a blend that requires some personal time. Come join me in the kitchen for the creation of a jubilant and passionate lotion.

  1. looks like the squalane isn’t posted throughout the recipe, this isn’t something I have and want to try making this recipe, is there a substitute suggestion that I could put in instead? Or would it just have to be cut out?

    Also, currently don’t have sesame oil, but have lots of other carrier type oils, any suggestion for a substitute that doesn’t give you a greasy feeling but still moisturizing?

  2. Sarah,

    Whoops! That was a typo error on my part. You don’t need the squalane. I just got so excited. :-)

    Things like Sweet Almond, Apricot Kernel, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil, Shea Oil and Sunflower Oil would all be great replacements.
    If you like the feel of the liquid oil directly on your skin, you will like it in your lotion.

    I hope this helps.
