orange creamsicle body lotion


a rich vanilla cream
blended with
sweet orange
served in a cardboard cylinder
that once warmed
pushes up easily
while you savor each delicious
 lick


yeah
like that
only
the scent takes you there
without any of the 
guilt
calories
flavor


following one of my favorite
Stephanie Tourles 
body care recipes
and this time
exactly as written
almost
I did used olive oil instead of almond oil
other than that
to the tee


last time i used a 
nice blend of
vanilla and lavender
which was very nice
but for summer
"orangesicle"
fits the bill


so 
after gathering all the 
necessary ingredients
and borrowing a few
I turned my kitchen into an
esthetician's playground
measuring
melting
combining
and finally
pouring the light face and body moisturizer
into canning jars
and sampling the product
as i went along


enough to wrap myself
in creamsicle goodness
all 
summer long


plus a little extra
for gifting
as a thank you
for sharing needed supplies
to make it happen

yep
that's what i did today

now
for that
 push-up...
