Unscented Lotion for Essential Oils

Having unscented lotion available is perfect to make a customized essential oil blend for just about anyone!

Lotion makes a great base for diluting your essential oils before applying them topically to your skin. Unscented lotion works best though, it allows the natural aroma of the essential oils you choose shine through.

Not only will they make your lotion smell great, but it gives you the option to customize the scent to your liking while adding therapeutic benefits! 

I find having a bottle of lotion for my essential oils If you need to buy unscented lotion here are a few options, or if you prefer then you can make your own homemade lotion without scent.
