I love the sound of this spicy body lotion from one of my favourite natural beauty blogs, Humblebee and me. Although some of her recipes are a little too complicated for me, this one is well within in my grasp.

It uses a combination of warm and spicy essential oils: cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger.

It uses pumpkin seed oil as it’s base, but I think you can happily use a more basic oil like sunflower or grapeseed oil if you’re not bothered about the orangey colour – it’s the spicy essential oils that attract me to this one.

And don’t forget to add a preservative like Cosgard or grapefruit seed oil to the lotion if you want it to last longer. Marie doesn’t include it in her recipe.
