  1. I want to give the home-made hand lotion a try. Can I use the healing balm instead of the mango butter? If not, where would be the best place for me to get mango butter from? Since it is not kidsafe, what are good tips for me to use it without putting my children in danger?

    Added it to my cart already! 🙂

    1. Hi Annette, Mango Butter is a safe option for kids as it’s just another kind of body butter or lotion. It’s even an ingredient in our DIY KidSafe Buzz Off Lotion Bars! It is the essential oils that are added to lotions and butters that determine whether or not a product is KidSafe. If you still want to substitute it, Healing Balm is definitely an option, or take a look a some of our other lotions and creams.

  2. As a newbie to all essential oils, I have a lot to learn. This item came in the kit I ordered and I would like to create a roller ball to carry with me. Dillution says 1-3%. Please give more details on how to make this a RB. How many drops with the carrier oil? Best choice of carrier oil?

    1. Maxine, if you have a 10 mL roller ball, first fill it up with a carrier. Fractionated Coconut Oil is a popular choice since it is thin, absorbs quickly, and has no scent, but you can really use whatever carrier oil you like best! Then, add your blend: for a 1% dilution, add 3 drops. For a 2% dilution, add 6 drops. For a 3% dilution, add 9 drops. Any one of those dilutions will work just fine, so you get to choose if you would like your RB to be 1%, 2%, or 3%. I hope this helps!

  3. Curious which ingredient makes it not Kidsafe? Turmeric, or Yuzu, maybe? I want to make a comparable blend with some of its ingredients so I can diffuse it around my kids, and still maybe get the benefits of curbing my appetite. Any suggestions?

    1. Suzanna, it is the Lemon Myrtle in this blend that makes it not KidSafe. However, an easy swap is to replace it with Lemon. All other ingredients are KidSafe 🙂

  4. I made a roller with this but the scent isn’t very strong. Will try on an inhaler next time! Or maybe the lotion! So many options!

  5. I would like to make the hand lotion ASAP but don’t have mango butter or sunflower carrier oil. I DO have shea butter and cocoa butter. Can one of those be substituted for the mango butter? I also have fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil and grapeseed oil. can one of those be subbed for the sunflower oil? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    1. Roseanna, your substitutions sound great! I would caution that using Cocoa Butter could change the aroma of the blend, so you’ll have to try it to see if you like how it turns out 🙂 I would suggest using Grapeseed Oil or Almond Oil to replace the Sunflower oil. I’m going to link our Carrier Oil Chart in case you’d like to compare them side by side to help make your decision: https://www.planttherapy.com/pdfs/carrier_oil_chart.pdf

  6. This sounds like a must-try in an inhaler! Will put Munch Stop on my wish list. Thanks for the lotion recipe as well!

  7. I just ordered this today and I’m going to try the lotion. I think I want to make an inhaler with Munchy Sto. Fingers crossed this helps but I haven’t been disappointed yet by any of the synergies. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. An inhaler works wonderfully for Munchy Stop, too, but sometimes it’s fun to try something a little different! Hope you love it as a lotion, Dana!

    1. Great question, Kathy! Many times, carrier oils can be pretty interchangeable. They may have slightly different aromas and absorption rates, but don’t be afraid to experiment! If you come up with a carrier oil that you love with this recipe, let us know how it goes!

  8. The items being used to combine the ingredients, can the be used for food items after or will they have to be made into skin care/craft utensils?

    1. It’s really a personal preference. Some use the same utensils while others have separate ones. Personally, I slowly began acquiring utensils just for DIY projects until I had what I needed.

  9. What would be a safe low tech use of this oil? I imagine taking a drop under the tongue might be a bit too potent. I’m not really a diffuser or inhaler kind of person…Perhaps it could be diluted in a food grade carrier oil? Would sweet almond oil be the best choice?

    1. Hello Mark! If you’re not really an inhaler/diffusing person, you could try to dilute in a carrier oil/lotion of your choice and apply topically instead. Our official stance on the ingestion of essential oils is this: “All of our Essential Oils are 100% pure free from any chemicals or pesticides and are ingestible. However, we do not recommend the ingestion of any essential oils. They are highly concentrated and have the capacity to cause serious damage if used internally without the necessary expertise required in administering it. This is supported by the International Federation of Aromatherapists.” To learn more about ingesting essential oils, check out our post ‘Can Essential Oils Be Ingested’. https://www.planttherapy.com/blog/2014/01/14/can-essential-oils-be-ingested/ or send an email to [email protected]. Thanks!

    1. Inhalers are a really wonderful way to keep your favorite oils close without having to diffuse them, which isn’t always possible. Munchy Stop in an inhaler is perfect, since food cravings seem to pop up out of nowhere and at the worst of times!

    1. Do you have an inhaler, Megan? Munch Stop is a wonderful blend to put in an aromatherapy inhaler and keep with you throughout the day!

  10. I’m intrigued! I’d love to hear reviews from folks who have tried it. I wonder what makes it effective? I’ve used copaiba in pain blends, but I’m very curious about its other properties now.
