Body Lotion for Aging Skin

by Rita
(Rotterdam, Netherlands)

For about a year now I have been mixing and using my own Body Lotion. I'm a woman of 49, and as we all know everything starts going south fast at that age.

I've found that using Geranium, Ylang-Ylang, Vetiver and Olibanum oils really help smooth out wrinkles and moisturize my skin. And, it also helps firming my breasts! I usually add some Patchouli oil, because I love the fragrance - probably because it makes me remember my high school days ;-)

Here is my receipe:
7 drops of Geranium
7 drops of Ylang-Ylang
7 drops of Vetiver
7 drops of Olibanum
7 drops of Patchouli
on 50 ml. of a neutral (no additions of perfume or anything) body lotion. You could also use Almond oil, if your skin is really dry, but this is probably more appropriate as a massage oil.

Tip: I also use it on my face. It even helps with problems like dry spots and small skin infections!

I hope you like & enjoy my recipe!
