After a lot of trial and error, I finally found a lotion that works for me. It was a simple solution of replacing the cocoa butter with shea butter. The shea butter does not have a strong odor so it picks up the frangrence of the oils a lot better. I also replaced the olive oil with sweet almond oil. I made a lavender one for the evening and a 'pure energy' (combo of essential oils from Body Shop) one for after the morning shower. My kids still won't use it though. Sigh.
