DIY Body Oil
Body oils have a real luxury element to them, even though they are simply just oils blended together. Pour into a pretty bottle and you have a striking gift that is also unique - sure to be enjoyed and appreciated!
For the base oil blend, follow this ratio:
67% (or ⅔) light oils: apricot kernel, grapeseed oil, almond oil and/or safflower oil
20% luxury oils: pomegranate, rosehip, evening primrose, marula oil, argan oil, meadowfoam, etc
1% Vitamin E oil
10% OliveM300 to make it water soluble otherwise just leave out and substitute for a light oil such as almond oil.
2% essential oil/blend: try clary sage, lavender, geranium, frankincense, sweet orange, cinnamon bark, chamomile, rose blend, cardamom or any other oil of your choosing.
Choose a blend of the carrier oils above and mix in your essential oil blend into a 100ml bottle. Add a ribbon or a label for a special touch. Store in a cool place. To use, massage in a small amount all over the body.
Rosey Pomegranate Luxury Body Oil
60% light oil blend: 30ml safflower oil, 30ml almond oil
20% luxury oil blend: 5ml pomegranate, 10ml rosehip, 5ml evening primrose
1% Vitamin E oil
10% OliveM300 or substitute for an additional light oil
2% essential oil blend, try rose to go with the theme, or perhaps something warm and spicy such as cardamom or cinnamon bark
Optional: dried rosehips and dried rose petals
