Cooling Cucumber & Mint Body Oil

Are you looking for a body oil that was designed with shaving in mind? This recipe from The Natural Beauty Workshop is great for use after shaving your legs when your skin can feel quite dry, and can even become irritated. This body oil recipe  is not only a great aftershave, it will feel great on skin that has been mildly irritated by sun, allergens, or chronic dryness. So why not give it a try?

The ingredients you will need are 2 ounces Aloe Vera Oil, 1 ounce Cucumber Seed Oil, 1 ounce Camellia Seed Oil, 1/4 teaspoon Chamomile Essential Oil, 1/4 teaspoon Organic Spearmint Essential Oil and 1 Drop Vitamin E T50

The directions are very simple:
In a small bowl, combine the three Carrier Oils and mix well. Next, add the carefully measured Essential Oils and mix again. Using a funnel or a very steady hand, transfer the mixture to bottle.

The Natural Beauty Workshop suggests the following for packaging and using this product: Try packaging this Body Oil in a 4 Ounce PET Bottle with a Disc, Turret, or Snap Cap for easy dispensing. You can dress up the bottle with our printable labels, which you can download here: Download Cucumber Mint Body Oil Labels

The Oil can be applied directly to bare legs, and massaged into the skin, as you would a lotion or cream.The Oil will take longer to penetrate the skin than a lotion, but it should absorb fairly easily.
