Women have been using oils to make their skin beautiful for hundreds of years. All the beauties of history used oils; first vegetable oils with flowers and herbs and then essential oils when they became available after the process of distillation was invented. Oils give the skin a sheen that catches the light and makes people stop and stare. You won’t need artificial body gleamers, they pale next to the oils.

There are many essential and carrier oils to choose from to make a good body oil. The essential oils are great for pampering your body and their properties will also do you a world of good both physically and mentally. Make your body oil using 5 drops of essential oil to 1 teaspoon of base vegetable oil. You can purchase a one ounce bottle of oil and scent it with 25 drops of your blend of essential oils or you can use just one oil. For a 2 ounce bottle of oil, use 50 drops of essential oil and so on.

My favorite body oil includes two base oils, sweet almond and evening primrose, plus chamomile, geranium and lavender essential oils. You can make your body oils with one carrier oil and one essential oil or a combination of five essential oils, it’s all up to you. The rest of this week’s blogs will be about different ways to incorporate body oils into products you can give as gifts no matter what the occasion. I hope today’s blog will get you interested in making an oil for yourself before you start making gifts to give away.
