DIY body care oil | simple, cheap and quick recipe

  • Body, DIY

Hello guys! Today I have prepared another post for you about DIY cosmetics, this time it will be a body oil. It is a natural and homemade cosmetic that we can prepare at any time from semi-finished products, and even from food products from our kitchen and pantry.

So it’s quick to make and incredibly cheap, and organic too! Much better for our sensitive skin than chemical lotions and creams offered on store shelves. The cream gives smoothness and softness, but does not stick to the skin and does not leave an oily film. We can treat this cosmetic also as a skin nourishment after a strong peeling, but also as a natural, home-made lubricant for the daily care of the body skin after a bath.

To prepare a home cosmetic, we will only need oils – base oil, e.g. olive oil, almond oil or even sunflower oil, and a more noble oil, selected for the needs of our skin, e.g. argan oil, coconut oil or carrot oil. The recipe can of course be modified, I chose what I had to finish in my cosmetic supplies. The recipe worked very well for me and now, during the autumn cold weather, I use it almost every day to revive my skin even more. I love the blend of oils and change the fragrances of this cosmetic! So I would like to share it with you. So if you are interested in the recipe for homemade oil, check out my post.

Recipe for DIY natural body care oil

  1. Preparation.

    We select and measure the oils. We wash / scald the container for the finished oil.

  2. Mixing.

    Pour the selected base oil into the container. Then add the precious oil in a ratio of 8: 2. We mix thoroughly.

  3. Smell.

    Finally, pour in a few drops of selected essential oils, food oils or aromatized oils. You should be careful with the ethereal ones, but I usually add more food, even half a bottle.

  4. Maintenance.

    We add vitamin E to preserve the product and provide better skin care. We mix again. (You can skip this step, the oil shouldn't spoil quickly if you do it in such a small amount).

  5. Ready!

    Natural cosmetic ready for use.

DIY body oil, how to apply:

The oil should have a nice yellow color and smell.
You can also use it to massage your face if the selected oils do not cause blackheads. The oil is not preserved, but it should not deteriorate quickly, even if kept while showering (at most it will go rancid over time).

The smell of the oil can be changed every time, I love orange and vanilla, yang yang, patchouli and citrus .

Apply the oil to damp or wet skin , warmed up after a shower or bath. We massage the oil taken on the hand into the body, and then wait a few minutes for it to be completely absorbed, we can wipe the remains with a towel.
