Part 2. How to Make Your Own Home-Made Natural Skin Care Products - 5 Great Recipes

by Kolbjørn Borseth of Aromantic

The following recipes can be easily made in your own kitchen using ordinary kitchen equipment:

Marigold Ointment

Melt 15 gr. Beeswax and 45 ml of vegetable oil of your choice in a double boiler (a saucepan immersed in a larger saucepan of water). Then add another 35 ml of vegetable oil to the mixture

To this add 3 gr. of Marigold CO2 extract * and 25 drops of essential oils of your choice.

Pour into jars and label

* Alternatively you can soak marigold flowers in olive oil for 2- 3 weeks and use this oil instead.

Children's Fizzy Bath Bombs

Mix together:

120 gr. Sodium bicarbonate (sift through a strainer to remove any lumps)
with 160 gr. Citric Acid and cellulose

Melt separately:

15 gr. Cocoa butter and 15 gr. Turkish red oil
Add them to the powder and blend well
Add 2 - 3 ml of essential oils of your choice and finally some colouring (without water)
Now blend everything together well for 5 - 6 minutes using your hands or a kitchen blender

Form it into a ball with your hands and leave to dry. You can also use a mould to shape the mixture (cake paper moulds are good). Leave them overnight to dry on greaseproof paper.

Baby Massage Oils

Baby skin needs gentle and safe fats and oils such as those used for very sensitive skin. We have three classical oils for this purpose - Apricot kernel oil, Peach kernel oil and Rosehip oil. Always add a little E-Vitamin oil in your massage oil as its good for the skin and will help prevent it going rancid.

Baby Massage Oil No 1

30 ml Apricot or Peach kernel oil
30 ml Olive oil (Virgin)
39 ml Thistle oil (Starflower oil)
1 gr. E-Vitamin oil

Add a few drops of essential oils and mix together, bottle and label

Baby Massage Oil No 2
(without the use of kernel oils)

40 ml Virgin olive oil
58 ml Evening Primrose oil
2 gr. E-vitamin oil

Simply mix together, bottle and label

Luxury Massage Oil

50 ml Organic Apricot oil
45 ml Organic Rosehip oil
5 gr. E-Vitamin oil

Simply blend together then add a few drops of your favorite essential oil
Bottle and label

In Part 3 Kolbjørn will explain how to make natural skin creams
