Taking care of your skin doesn't have to involve expensive products loaded with toxic chemicals and promoted by celebrities. This is the reason we started the Zeeta Body skincare line! To share plant and earth based vegan skincare products that help you feel good and look good. With the help of essential oils, we can create all-natural body care products that promote healthy, radiant skin and a confident you. You already know that essential oils not only smell wonderful and help balance our mood, but also offer a wide range of benefits for your skin, including moisturizing, soothing, healing and rejuvenating. Taking the time to explore which essential oils you want to use in your DIY essential oil body care recipes is the first step.
I generally suggest choosing the scents that you like most, so you will enjoy using your home-made creations regularly. There are hundreds of essential oils for you to choose from, each having a unique aroma and a variety of health benefits. Here are a few popular options and benefits to consider for your essential oil body care recipes.
Eucalyptus oil: Supports the natural healing of bruises and relieves muscle tension.
Tangerine oil: Balances oily skin and repairs scarring.
Lavender oil: Promotes healthy aging of the skin and heals wounds.
Lemongrass oil: Loaded with anti-fungal properties and toning to the skin.
Oregano oil: Assists skin repair and aging skin.
When it comes to proportions of ingredients, with any DIY essential oil based recipe, it depends on how much product you intend on making. Consider the shelf life of your final products, how you intend on storing it and how often you will use it.
Let’s get to it and make something!
Make a face wash: Mix tea tree oil with carriers such as aloe vera gel, coconut oil and lavender oil, before applying gently to the skin.
Make an aromatherapy oil for skin: Add your favorite essential oils to any carrier oil for a simple DIY body oil.
Make a facial toner: Mix chamomile and jasmine essential oils with distilled water and alcohol free witch hazel.
Creating your own essential oil body care products not only allows you to customize your scents and eliminate any ingredients that your body is sensitive to. DIY essential oil body care recipes to eliminate allergens in your daily routine is possible!
The best part of all of this is that you can ensure that you're using natural and beneficial ingredients. These DIY recipes are just the beginning, as there are countless essential oils and combinations to explore.
Whether you're looking to pamper your skin, soothe your mind, or invigorate your senses, essential oils can provide a solution for you. Try different recipes, experiment with different oils, and embrace the natural beauty that essential oils can bring to your daily self-care routine. Remember, that the key to naturally radiant skin is consistency with your healthy lifestyle routine.
