Dreamy Lavender and Orange Lotion

Lavender and orange oils are the perfect companions for bedtime bliss. Whilst lavender is well known for its calming effect, orange can have the benefit of reducing anxieties before sleep.

This body lotion contains shea butter, which is perfect for use after a long soak in the bath to moisturise the skin. Simply rub this all over your body before bed, pop on your PJs and wake up in the morning with beautifully smooth skin.
