You will need:

  • 1/4 cup vodka or witch hazel
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 to 3 drops favorite essential oil or a mixture of citrus, lavender, rosemary, thyme and jasmine
  • Mix all ingredients together and pour into a clean bottle.

    Essential Oils Recipes :Lavender Water Voile

    The word voile is French for veil, and is used to describe something that is very light and delicate. When used to describe fragrance, a voile is gentle and soft, just a whisper of fragrance on your skin.You could also use a different favorite floral scent in this recipe, such as frangipani or jasmine.

    You will need:

  • 1/4 cup filtered or distilled water
  • 1/8 teaspoon castor oil
  • 6 to 8 drops lavender essential oil

Mix together all ingredients and stir well. Pour into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid.

Essential Oils Recipes : Chamomile-Rose Replenishing Eye Oil

Chamomile-Rose Replenishing Eye Oil The skin around the eyes is fragile and benefits from light and moisturizing treatments. Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Rose (Rosa spp.) essential oils are anti-inflammatory and restorative for this delicate area.

You will need:

  • 5 drops Chamomile essential oil
  • 5 drops Rose essential oil
  • 1 ounce Jojoba oil

Combine essential oils with Jojoba oil and store in a one-ounce glass bottle with a dropper top.

To use the oil, cleanse your face and leave your skin slightly damp. Apply 2 drops of the oil to your ring finger (you’ll apply less pressure with this finger than with your index finger), and with a gentle tapping motion, smooth the oil beneath your eye and onto the area just beneath the brow bone.

Do not apply oil directly to your eyelids, as it can migrate into your eyes and cause irritation.

Essential Oils Recipes : Citrus Bliss Perfume Blend

Citrus Bliss Perfume Blend You will need :

  • 6 drops grapefruit
  • 5 drops lavender
  • 3 drops tangerine
  • 1 drop ylang ylang

Combine 15 drops of your essential oil blend with one ounce of vodka in a glass bottle and shake well. Ideally, allow your perfume to sit in a cool, dark place for a couple of weeks before using it, which allows time for the essential oils to meld together and results in a rich, complex blend. For ease of application, store your perfume in a small glass bottle with an atomizer top.

If you prefer an oil-based perfume, you can add 15 to 30 drops of your essential oil blend to one ounce of jojoba oil in a glass bottle and shake well. An oil-based perfume can be used immediately. Apply a drop or two to pulse points at your wrists and neck.

Essential Oils Recipes : Oasis Body Scrub

Create an all natural body scrub scented with exotic oils of Rose and Frankincense! Body scrubs are easy to make and can be adapted to include your favorite scents and ingredients. Whip up a batch within minutes and your skin will thank you! Salt is an excellent body scrub; almonds and honey help to moisturize while smoothing skin.

  • 1-2 cup finely ground almonds
  • 1-2 cup sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 5 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 5 drops rose essential oil

Mix all ingredients together in a small unbreakable container. Wet your body in a warm shower, and apply the scrub to your legs, arms and torso. Massage into your skin with a circular motion, rinse well and pat your skin dry. The oil in this body scrub makes the tub slippery, so use a rubber tub mat to prevent falls. Busy to make your own?
