Make Your Own Body Oil

The Rosehip Oil Serum is a very concentrated blend of vitamins and essential fatty acids. A few drops are enough to moisturize your face and infuse all the benefits. To bring these vitamins to the larger surface of your body, we’ve developed a simple recipe to create your own body oil. You can make it on your own or invite a little one to help!

Step 1

Choose one or more carrier oils. We went for sweet almond oil because of its versatility, richness in mineral salts and jojoba because it fits all skin types and has a very interesting texture.
Tip: prefer organic oils and check the ingredient list to see whether the oil is 100% pure and not refined.


A bit of inspiration on carrier oils: 
  • Avocado oil is softening, protecting and perfect for dry skin
  • Castor oil strengthens nails and boosts dry and devitalized hair
  • Argan oil is regenerating and anti-aging
  • Prickly pear oil for a luxurious shot of vitamin E
  • Macadamia oil to relieve redness, scars and wounds




Step 2

Blend your carrier oils. 
Tip: No need to measure, tune in to your intuition to make the mixture.




Step 3

Carefully add drops of Rosehip Oil Serum. For a quantity of about 30 ml of body oil we’ve added 20 drops of glowy Serum drops.
Tip: stir once in a while and see how the colour and smell of your mixture is changing while you keep adding drops.




Step 4

If you would like to incorporate a smell or a special property, dive into the world of essential oils! We’ve used geranium and rose wood for a foresty, yet upbeat smell. 
Tip: it’s recommended to avoid essential oils when pregnant
