Spa(ahhh) Day Sunday: DIY Lavender Body Oil or Try SheaMoisture Lavender & Wild Orchid Bath, Body & Massage Oil
When it comes to body care, oils are most def the new black. Body lotions are still popular, but going back to oils has been the road most traveled for many women. Why? Unlike lotions, oils—like like almond, olive, jojoba, and coconut—seal moisture in the skin and keep it hydrated. Oils additionally protect the skin from environmental pollutants. Natual oils contain vital nutrients that your body can easily absorb without clogging pores. Bonus factor—customizing your body oil with essential oils is the key to naturally address a plethora of health and beauty issues.
Lavender essential oil is known for it’s antibacterial, sedative, aromatic and skin healing properties, which makes it the perfect extract for a DIY Body Oil.
What you need:
1 cup sweet almond oil
Lavender essential oil
8 oz. resealable glass container
Using funnel fill glass bottle about halfway with sweet almond oil. Next, slowly add the lavender essential oil a few drops at a time. Be sparing in how much you add, as essential oil is strong and a little goes a very long way.
Once you’ve achieved a scent strength that suits you, add the remainder sweet almond oil. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and the oil should keep for up to six months. Use in place of lotion or add to the bath to soften skin.
