Love this recipe and so does everyone who's received it as gifts.. I use tea tree essential oil instead of orange and skip the zest. I also use sweet almond oil. I also use Olay's hypo-allergenic soap and it turns out great. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
I gave jars of this along with homeade soap and bath salts to the girls at work for Christmas. I left out the orange zest and it still turned out wonderful. I used tangerine essential oil because I liked it a little better and I also made a lemon thyme version. This is the bomb! My friends dove right into this and declared it better than any store bought they have ever spent a small fortune on. I've been asked to make more so we can have it in the office. One friend is on a quest to find my 'secret-family-recipe' and won't stop bugging me for it! I can't tell you how excited I am to have this, Thanx!
besides the great smell, this felt so wonderful in the shower. i've never made anything like this before but i did have all the ingredients except for the essential oil,so i bought and used cinnamon because that's what what available at the store. i just love this and i think it would make a great gift. thanks pets!
