10 Body Oil Recipes for Seasonal Change

There’s nothing like a nourishing essential oil blend for your body, to soften your skin, cover you with energetic protection and generally keep your spirits up. And there’s no better time than now of course, as we move from one season to the next.

As per usual here is my spiel on making a body oil:

Nourishing Body Oil Blend

For a coat of your body use 3 teaspoons of carrier oil in a little dish and, add 7 – 8 drops of essential oil. It’s always best to patch test first, before you apply all over.

***** Always put the drops of essential oil into the bottle or dish first, then add the carrier oil. It gives the scents time to create a synergistic fusion.

For a 50ml bottle of oil add 25 drops and see my articles “Ratios for Blending Essential Oils – A Reminder of the Basics” and “Aromatherapy – It’s Easy as 1 2 3”

    • Hi Tonia yes Jasmine and orange are gorgeous together and you could replace ginger with anything really – patchouli, marjoram, sandalwood, cedarwood Atlas, vanilla CO2, Siberian fir, Indian rosewood and the list goes on and on. Use your intuition and you will be guided to the right oil x Thanks for commenting x
