The great thing about natural beauty is that you can use whole ingredients to craft your very own beauty rituals, while also tapping into that creative streak.

The Beauty DIY Recipe: Nourishing, Uplifting Body Oil Blend
The Benefits of a Nourishing, Uplifting Body Oil Blend
It’ll help make your skin smooth, soft, hydrated and restored while also uplifting the mind and senses.
The Ingredients + Instructions
- 2 oz. sunflower oil, which makes a rich, highly emollient massage oil without leaving a greasy residue
- 1 oz. avocado / olive oil (heavier oils)
- 1/2 oz. apricot oil
- 1/2 oz. jojoba oil
- 22 drops cedarwood (cedrus atlantica or cedrus deodora)
- 39 drops ylang ylang (cananga odorata)
- 22 drops rose geranium (pelargonium graveolens or Pelargonium capitatum)
Add your essential oils to your mixed carrier oils and shake to combine. This recipe creates 4 oz. of body oil and works best when applied to damp, freshly washed skin to retain moisture and hydration.

It’s amazing for all skin types, promotes hydration, skin-cell regeneration and balances out the skin’s natural oil production. And it truly uplifts the mind and senses as it nourishes the skin. The mantra (written on the label) is ‘I nourish myself on a cellular and emotional level.’ And it really does!”
