How To Use Body Oils

I am writing one last  blog about body oils, at least for a while. My brother passed away in 2000 but before he did, he loved body oils. He  had his favorite scents  for himself as well as scents he liked for his lady friends. He kept trying different scents until he found one that he absolutely loved. The first time he purchased a bottle of the oil he liked best, he asked for the largest bottle we have.

Well, when he came back and asked for another bottle before a month was up I asked him if he had spilled the bottle or given it away. He told me he had used it all! I explained to him and I’m advising you; it only takes a small amount of body oil for you to smell wonderful. The oils blend in with your body chemistry creating a signature scent that is all your own and the scent lasts all day. You may not smell it yourself after a while (your nose gets used to it) but others will and you will receive many complements about how wonderful you smell.

An Essential Oil Perfume Recipe

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.

Healthy and Unhealthy Skin

A lot of people don’t know the difference between ‘healthy’ skin and ‘unhealthy’ skin. There are actually a number of glaring signifiers to determine whether or not your skin can be considered healthy. There are typically four criteria to look at in regards to healthy skin: hydration, even color, smooth texture, and normal sensations.

Hydration is in reference to whether or not skin is frequently overly dry or flaky; even color is referring to whether or not skin looks blotchy; smooth texture relates to acne, blackheads, scars, and wrinkles; lastly, normal sensations is referring to whether or not you may feel burning or itching on your skin. One of the best ways to ensure that your skin remains healthy is through organic body care.

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.

The Last Last Minute Gifts

All week  I have been talking about gifts you can make to give away at Christmas or for any occasion. That is, except for Monday – there was no blog Monday night because I had technical difficulties and couldn’t save anything so I finally gave up and went to bed. Tonight, I’ve got a gift that is going to be wonderful for anyone you give it to. This is the gift of body oils.

Body oils are fragrances that can be blends of essential oils or formulations of designer fragrances. You can wear them as an oil or they can be specially blended into a spray. The oils stay with you all day, even when you use just a very small amount. They blend in with your body chemistry and the same oil on you will have a different aroma on someone else. Some of the oils, like Egyptian Musk, are unisex and men and women wear the same oil but they smell wonderful on either one. The designer type fragrances are formulated for men and women just like the designer’s original fragrance. The best thing about the body oils is that there are no harmful chemicals or alcohol in them.

How to Use Body Oils

We have a retail store in Topeka, Kansas where we sell body oils. People come in the store looking for a particular scent but they usually want to smell the designer oil types because they recognize the name. Most people do not ask us how to use the oils they buy so I always assumed that they already know what to do but I am recalling how my brother, Land Grant, used his first oil and I think I need to explain some ways to use body oils. Land (yes, that was his given name) fell in love with the designer type body oil called Joop. He bought a 2 ounce bottle and I didn’t see him for a few days. He came back in within a week to buy another bottle and  I asked him if he spilled it or what happened since a two ounce bottle will last quite a long time. He told me he used it all and he wanted more!

How to Use Body Oils:

  • Use a roll on bottle and roll the oil on your pulse points and rub it in (rubbing it in starts it working with your body chemistry)
  • Use a pour out bottle and pour a dime size amount in your palm, rub your hands together and dab the oil on your neck, chest, arms and legs, then rub it in on those areas – you can use more or less according to your taste or scent
  • Blend your oil in an unscented shower gel and take a shower with it before putting on your lotion and/or body oil
  • Blend your oil in an unscented lotion and rub it all over your body – you can then dot the oil on your pulse points with your roll on bottle if you don’t feel the scented lotion is enough
  • Buy your oil in a spray bottle – the oil is diluted with a disperser but you can spray the mist and walk through it or spray it on your clothes and it is just as potent as the oil alone

If you use oils often and you have a different method of applying it to your body, please let me know so I can spread the word.
