DIY Body Sprays with Essential Oils

DIY Body Sprays with Essential Oils | Raw Edible Organic Skin Care | Scoop.it
DIY Body Spray Basics
Supplies: To begin this aroma journey, you'll need to stock up on a few supplies. Think of your perfumery ingredients as if they are a collection of paints. Like strokes of color on a canvas, it's fun to have a variety of scents to layer while blending, including several top, middle, and bottom notes. These essential oil kits are a wonderful way to get started but don't miss this 30% off sale on some of my favorite aromatherapy products happening now. You'll also want a few bases, like organic hydrosols, organic witch hazel extract, or plain vodka. I really like to have these little amber vials handy for making test blends and this cobalt blue bottle with mister top for the finished recipe.

Test Blend: To make a simple test blend, choose just 2 or 3 essential oils. Carefully drip a total of 10 drops into a small vial and take notes of the ratio (example: 5 drops of cistus, 3 drops of sandalwood, and 2 drops of lavender). Roll the bottle between your palms to combine. Take a whiff or use a cotton ball to allow the blend to develop. Smell again after an hour or two and then again the next day to experience the fragrance's arc. You can also go simple and use just 1 essential oil instead of making a blend.

Formulate: Once you have an essential oil blend you love, it's time to make the body spray. Use a hydrosol for the base to give your blend extra complexity or go for a neutral option, like vodka or witch hazel extract. Calculate a 2% dilution for the size of your spray bottle and mix up a batch of your essential oil blend. To simplify this process, multiply 12 drops of the blend per ounce of base carrier. So, if you have a 4oz spray bottle, use 48 total drops of your essential oil blend. Carefully count each drop as you drip the blend into your base and then shake well. Congrats! Your body spray is ready to be enjoyed. It's that easy!

Homemade Hydrating & Anti-Aging Rosehip Oil Face Serum

Homemade Hydrating & Anti-Aging Rosehip Oil Face Serum | Raw Edible Organic Skin Care | Scoop.it
Whether you live in a dry or windy climate, or one that is drenched in sun, your skin will suffer. This is especially true if you are in your upper years as the skins natural ability to balance and stay moist declines as we age.

Sure, you can purchase a lot of products at your local drugstore, but many of these contain harsh chemicals that actually strip your skin of any natural moisture and leave it looking dull and listless.

A much better idea is to feed your skin with natural oils. Here are some of the top oils and a fabulous and highly effective face serum for hydrating and conditioning skin.

How To Make An Intensely Moisturizing Shea Butter Eye Cream

How To Make An Intensely Moisturizing Shea Butter Eye Cream | Raw Edible Organic Skin Care | Scoop.it

As we can’t see our insides, we usually notice the first signs of aging on our skin. While age brings wisdom, it also brings less resilient skin that often tends to become dry and begins to wrinkle. And, as the skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on the body and constantly active while we’re awake (we blink around 10,000 times every day), it’s more fragile, more prone to dryness, and quicker to show signs of age, resulting in those dreaded crow’s feet.

Reduced collagen that can be caused by sun-exposed aged skin can also contribute to wrinkles by weakening the bond between skin layers as we get older, and, with that loss of collagen, an increasing number of wrinkles ensue, while some areas of the skin, particularly around the eyes, begin to get less firm.

While diet plays a significant role in how our skin looks and feels, there are other ways we can help improve the complexion to create a more youthful, glowing look with fewer wrinkles and less visible crow’s feet – without resorting to drastic measures like going under the knife or even high-priced department store creams.

Those store-bought creams typically come with a host of toxic chemicals too, but by making your own homemade eye cream, you’ll not only save cash, but you’ll potentially save your good health too. Using shea butter along with pure, natural oils is safe and effective, helping to moisturize your skin, including the areas around your eyes, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, including those pesky crow’s feet.

The nutrients and other compounds in essential oils that appear in the recipe below offer all sorts of benefits that are detailed under each one.

Top 5 Essential Oils To Beat Acne & How To Use Them

Top 5 Essential Oils To Beat Acne & How To Use Them | Raw Edible Organic Skin Care | Scoop.it
While acne is often thought of as a teenage affliction, people of all ages can be affected by the condition that can cause unsightly, sometimes painful, breakouts that appear mostly on the face, shoulders, neck, chest and back. The condition affects tens of millions of Americans, both males, and females, and when left untreated, it can result in damaged self-esteem and other problems.

Essential oils have been proven to work for centuries for a wide variety of ailments, and people are increasingly discovering their wonderful benefits today, including using them to help clear skin and eradicate acne.
