Bath and massage oils are very easy to make at home. They also make a perfect gift for a friend or loved one who enjoys unwinding with a long, luxurious bath. In addition to being great treatments for the skin, bath and massage oils can be mentally relaxing, stimulating, or can be used to create a sensual mood.
This floral oil is good for normal to dry skin, and it only takes about five minutes to make. Included here is also how to make a glorious floral perfume variation!
Jojoba oil is a good choice as a base oil because it does not need to be refrigerated and does not go rancid. Grapeseed oil makes a great base for massage oil because it is very light and leaves the skin soft, not greasy.
3/4 cup jojoba oil
1/2 teaspoon essential oil of rose
1/2 teaspoon essential oil of lavender
1 teaspoon essential oil of geranium
1/4 teaspoon essential oil of ylang-ylang
Mix together the jojoba oil and essential oil, store in a tightly sealed bottle, in a dark place. Add 2 teaspoons oil to bath while tub is filling. For massage, use 1/2 teaspoon essential oil to 1/2 cup jojoba oil.
To make glorious floral perfume: Mix the essential oils only, in a beautiful, tiny bottle. Cap tightly and shake well. Apply just a touch on your pulse points: neck, wrists, and behind knees.
