Using Natural Body Oils

Author: Dr. Larita

A friend of mine told me she loved the fragrance I was wearing one day and asked what it was. I told her it was Egyptian Musk, a fragrance we carry at Fragrance World of Topeka. (Like us on Facebook.) She eventually got some for herself and she told me she still likes but it didn’t smell the same on her as it did on me.

The thing about body oils is that the fragrance smells one way in the bottle but once you put it on, it blends with your body chemistry and it becomes a signature scent for you. It will still have the same fragrance notes but your chemical signature will make it different on you than on anyone else. One special thing about Egyptian Musk as well as most other musk fragrances is that they are unisex and work well on both men and women.


At Fragrance World of Topeka, we always strive to bring you quality products that you would not find in any other beauty store. We have in store for you many pure quality massage oils that will not react with your skin. From natural to organic products, we assure you of our commitment to help you fulfill your beauty needs.

Sometimes you get home really tired and exhausted; you do not have time to see a massager, but you need to feel like you seriously need a massage on your back. Do not worry anymore. We have got you covered. With just the Melrose Sweet Almond Oil, you can get yourself some home treatment by nourishing your skin and lubricating it to reduce friction as you perform massage on your body. It gives you the confidence that you want to get when receiving body massage.

Therefore, if you have not tried our products, we invite you to order some as soon as possible. Aside from quality, we also assure affordability, and you have no reason to fail to stop by. You will always be coming for more because we believe in you. Do not hesitate, strike the order button to purchase your favorite massage oils and get your order delivered immediately.


Today I’m going to give you a recipe I like for a perfume made from essential oils. You will need small glass bottles and pipettes to transfer the oils, and a small notepad to record your recipe so it can be reproduced or adjusted.

To create our perfume we are going to start by using a couple drops of vetiver and cedarwood as the base notes. This is trial and error, you try it and if you like it good, if not you can change it. Keep track of the number of drops of each essential oil you use on the notepad. When you have your base notes the strength you want, add a few drops of clove bud for the middle note and a few more drops of orange and ginger as the top notes.

Let the essential oils sit for 24-48 hours away from heat and sunlight. Your perfume blend will change somewhat as it matures. If you like the blend, go ahead and dilute it by adding fractionated coconut carrier oil to the bottle. Add a little carrier oil at a time until you feel the dilution is right. If you want to change the blend, you can adjust it before adding the carrier oil and let it sit another 24-48 hours. While adjusting, keep track of the number of drops of oil you use. This recipe will give you a spicy perfume blend. Try other essential oils to make your own unique scents. You can even give a few bottles away and gifts.


Applying Body Oils

Winter weather can wreak havoc on the skin. The dry, cold air dehydrates skin, making it appear older and less supple. When properly applied, body oils can reduce the effects of winter weather.

Start by cleansing the skin of all perfumes and lotions. If you have the time and resources, then exfoliating your skin is also advisable. While your skin is still hot and damp generously apply body oils. Allow the oils to soak into the skin before putting on clothing.


Fragrance Oil Gifts

Now is the time of year when people are looking for great gifts to give to friends and relatives for the  holidays. Whether it is for the home or the body, many of us like to give wonderful smelling scents as gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. We have previously discussed using essential oils to scent the air with diffusers. Essential oils can also be added to the bath, massaged into the skin, or inhaled directly.

If you are concerned about using natural skin care products, you should use body oils instead of  perfume or cologne. Body oils are designed to be used on your skin. They may or may not contain essential oils. They are often formulations based on the traditional designer brands. When you purchase perfume or cologne in a department store, you  are paying a premium price for the brand name, the advertising campaigns, cosmetics gifts, and the beautiful fancy packaging. These designer brand name perfumes are comprised of concentrated oils and 75% to 85% alcohol, ethanol and or water.

The alcohol and ethanol used make your perfume smell much stronger than it is but it fades within a few hours. As your perfume (or the alcohol in it) evaporates, it not only takes your fragrance but your natural body oils with it, drying your skin as it goes.  Body oils are pure, concentrated perfume oils in a cosmetic grade vegetable oil base that blend in with your body chemistry making the scent your own. They evaporate naturally giving your skin a softer, smoother feeling – plus they contain no alcohol, ethanol or water so many people who are allergic to perfumes and colognes can wear body oils with no problems.


Body oils are all the rave these days. As consumers become more and more conscious of what goes into their skin and bodies, Body oils come highly preferred for several reasons. For one thing, oils are non-greasy and incredibly hydrating. They absorb well and locks in moisture longer without drying out your skin.

Compared to creams and lotions, body oils are more affordable than most moisturizer brands Also, the scent of perfume body oils do not rub off easily and can last all day. That means you don’t have to put it on every now and then – thus making it an economical choice, too. Body oils are highly concentrated and its moisturizing qualities have the ability to enhance your skin’s quality. Because they are becoming more and more popular, there are now plenty of body oil brands in the market. The best ones are made organic and chemical-free, and come infused with root, fruits, flowers, and leaves extracts. These natural ingredients can work wonders for your skin.

Of course there are still people who think oil and skin don’t really mix well. But all it takes is for them to try and feel the benefits of body oils for themselves. When it comes to keeping your skin healthy and well-hydrated, using body oils is worth a shot.

I love to have fun with some great skin care supplies like the body oils that I have been using. The oils leave me with a fresh scent and they help me to feel great about showing off my skin. Especially now that the warm weather has been here, I have really been enjoying using my body oils so I can feel confident wearing my favorite tops and short shorts.

There are some great options out there when it comes to my oils and I love discovering the right ones for myself. The ones that I have been using help me to soften my skin and to keep the moisture sealed inside my skin. The oils are perfect for using all over my body and on my face as well and they keep my skin youthful and beautiful.

I love using my body oils for the kind of skin care that I want to treat myself to on a daily basis. The oils are really nice after the shower and they are really nice when I want to feel fresh throughout the day as well. I am really happy with my oils and I can’t wait to experiment with some other scents in the future.
