Essential Oil DIY - Personal

  • Nurturing Mother's Day Skin Dusting Powder

    After enjoying a relaxing bath or shower, indulge your body by smoothing on a homemade talc-free skin dusting powder, featuring simple ingredients and pretty floral scents for soft, glowing skin.

    This skin dusting powder is made with arrowroot, a culinary ingredient found in most grocery stores, making this dusting powder as economical as it is revitalising. Arrowroot is a natural and toxin-free alternative to talcum powder, and can be used as a traditional baby powder.

    This recipe is scented with the relaxing aromas of rose, lavender and orris root. 

    Its best applied to the skin after bathing using a powder puff or brush (we like to use a Kabuki Brush).

    This DIY makes for a gorgeous and luxurious natural Mother's Day gift.

    What you will need:

    • 30g dried orris root* powder (can be omitted if you can't get your hands on it, just supplement with more Arrowroot powder)
    • 120g Arrowroot powder
    • 5-6 drop of pure rose essential oil ( I know I know this is an expensive oil so if you don't have it, you can swap out for any other lovely floral or sweet smelling oil like Geranium)
    • 5-6 drops of pure lavender essential oil
    • Dried lavender and/ or rose petals (optional, but oh so pretty!)
    • 175ml amber glass jar or if you want a larger volume, times the recipe by 3 and store in our beautiful 500ml amber glass jar.

    * Orris Root is considered to have a positive effect on the moisture content of the skin. Mildly refreshing and astringent, it regulates moisture exchange in the skin which helps the skin to rid itself of dead particles and other toxins.

    Method: 

    1. Combine arrowroot, orris powder, essential oils and dried floral leaves (that have been crushed with a mortar & pestle or whizzed in the food processor for a couple of seconds)
    2. Stir well with a wooden spoon until all blended thoroughly
    3. Stored in one of our amber glass jars, your skin dusting powder can be kept for four to six weeks at room temperature without loosing it's fragrance. 
  • Orange, Chamomile and Calendula Natural Bath Tea Bags

    Bath T-bags are so easy to dress up for gifting. We have chosen to tie ours with dried lavender, cumquats and other flowers to make them super pretty. 

    When creating bath products with dried flowers, you can often be left with the task of cleaning the botanical left overs out of the bath. Our cotton T-bags are really good for those days you wish to treat yourself with a soak minus the clean up.

    Not only is this recipe quick and easy, but the orange and chamomile essential oils help to relax the mind and body while the calendula nurtures the skin as you soak.

    Ingredients:

    • 5 Pack of bath T-bags
    • 10 tablespoons of Epsom salts
    • 6 teaspoons of rock salt
    • 6 teaspoons of Bicarb soda
    • 15 drops of pure Orange oil
    • 6 drops of pure Roman Chamomile oil

    How to:

    1. Add the dry ingredients to a small mixing bowl. 
    2. Mix dry ingredients. 
    3. Add the essential oils and mix well.
    4. You may wish to add some dried flowers or tea for effect.
    5. Spoon mixture into bags or into a jar of your choice.

    This recipe makes 5 x bath t-bags. Store in an airtight container until ready to use as the salts will absorb moisture from the air if left out.
