A behind-the-scenes peek at my life as a Clean Beauty Blogger + Aesthetician, helping you crack the code on safe beauty products that actually work + a lifestyle that works for YOU.
Wouldn’t it be nice to make your own beauty products instead of having to buy them at the store? Well, I’ve got some good news for you today, my friend. You can! I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite recipes with you, one I’ve been making for years. With just a few ingredients and a little bit of patience, you too can make your own DIY homemade lavender calendula body oil!
This oil is the real deal. You can use it in place of shaving cream, as a makeup primer, as a soothing face oil and even as a cuticle oil! I’ve been making big batches of this stuff for years, and you will never believe how easy it is to make it yourself!
The calendula flowers soothe and nourish the skin while the lavender flowers act as an amazing antibacterial agent. Lavender also offers so many aromatherapy benefits and is super soothing to the skin! You can even add a few drops of any essential oils that you love, to make it totally customized, just for you.
1/2 Cup Organic Dried Lavender Flowers
1/2 Cup Organic Calendula Flowers
2 Cups Organic Jojoba Oil*
One Clean and Sanitized Glass Mason Jar with a Removable Lid
Now you have your OWN homemade lavender body oil! You can use this oil in your own salt scrubs or to moisturize your skin after you shower (my favorite!) It also makes the most amazing hostess gift. Just keep the oil either in a dark container or out of sunlight for the longest shelf life.
*I prefer to use either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil as they are more easily absorbed into the skin, but you can use any unscented oil that you like.
