NaturallyCurly Editor Amanda does not normally DIY. So when Lisa Price came to visit the NaturallyCurly offices she got to ask the Queen of DIY herself for her easiest recipe.
Lisa recommends a simple ratio of 4 oz of oil to 12 drops of essential oil.
The essential oils are simply for fragrance, so if you do not like fragrance in your oils you can leave the optional essential oils out. You can also customize your oil using essential fragrance oils that you prefer, Lisa chose a few of her personal favorites for this blend.
Lisa recommends a ratio of 4 oz of oil to 12 drops of essential oil.
What you'll need:
- 2 oz grapeseed oil
- ½ oz liquid jojoba (jojoba oil)
- 1½ oz apricot kernel oil
The molecular structure of these oils are small, so when you rub them into your skin or hair they can soak in. They also don't have a strong odor.
Optional essential oils for fragrance
- 3 drops lemongrass
- 3 drops jasmine
- 6 drops vanilla
Simply combine all of the ingredients into a container that is large enough to pour and stir, and when the oils have been well-blended use a funnel to pour it into the bottle where you will be storing this. We were able to find containers, droppers and funnels at a hobby or craft supplies store.
Lisa says there are so many base oils and essential oils that you can work with, the possibilities are endless it's just about finding what your hair and skin respond well to, and the textures and scents that you like. This recipe is a great starting point for you to begin your exploration with DIY, feel free to play and create your own signature oil!
