It’s so easy to make this body oil, and it has such a luxurious fragrance and texture.
For dry winter skin, this simple body oil recipe is amazing.
- Sterile empty bottle
- Dried rose buds or petals
- Jasmine essential oil
- Carrier oil
- Gather and put your dried rosebuds and/or petals in a clean, dry bottle.
- Around one-third of the container should be filled with dried flowers.
- Using fully dried flowers here is essential as any water or moisture can affect the final product and could contribute to the growth of bacteria in your body oil.
- Fill the bottle with a carrier oil, seal, and leave to infuse for 2-3 weeks in a warm and sunny spot. Cold-pressed olive oil used in this container, grapeseed, jojoba, sweet almond, or sunflower, is some of the other options that you can use.
- Make sure the quality of the oil that you are going to use is the best. Try and use organic cold-pressed oils.
- You can then add the essential jasmine oil once the infusion period (2-3 weeks) is completed.
- You should add 5 drops of essential oil for every 10ml of carrier oil, but lower this to 2 drops per 10ml if you have sensitive skin.
For example, you can add up to 30 drops of essential oil for 150 ml and up to 15 drops of essential oil for those who have sensitive skin.
- If you want, you can strain the roses and shift the oil into another container, fully up to you! I like to keep the dried flowers in the container, as I like how it looks.
You can now apply your body oil, enjoy the floral fragrance and your super soft, flower-scented skin as you apply this!
For dry, sensitive skin, this oil is especially good, perfect for minimizing/preventing stretch marks and healing (c-section) scarring.
- Olive oil has been shown to naturally rejuvenate the skin and is proposed as a natural oil to be used to reduce scarring after surgery.
Olive oil is rich in A, D, E, and K vitamins. In their own way, each of these benefits the skin.
- Vitamin E is the leader of that pack; it’s an antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical harm.
In the body, oxidation creates free radicals that are a natural and normal process.
- Jasmine oil has been commonly used for the treatment of skin, primarily for the reduction of inflammation, for the purpose of anti-aging, and also for dry skin.
It is most widely used to treat dermatitis as well as eczema.
Jasmine oil-containing cream, lotions, etc. can help reduce blemishes, remove dryness, avoid oily skin, minimize wrinkles, and fine lines.
- Rose oil provides many advantages!
The benefits include helping to repair and moisturize the skin from scars, combating inflammation, relieving stress, and promoting circulation.
The oil is a tissue regenerator and anti-inflammatory agent filled with therapeutic skin benefits.
Not only does it moisturize, but it also preps the skin and helps the effects last longer.
