With spring finally here…or should I say soon to arrive, I’ve been in the mood for all things spring. This not only includes edibles like fresh salads and deliciously tender asparagus, but body care products that are florally and remind me of the soon to come flowers that will beautify our landscape.
Just like someone’s taste buds can change and adapt to different flavors and textures, I think our liking to different scents can change as well. I’ve always enjoyed the smell of roses outside, but until recently I’ve never liked the scent in body care products.
I had gotten a sample of body care oil that was scented with rose essential oil. I wasn’t too keen on trying it, but thought what the heck…might as well!
I was surprised to find that it smelled great and I enjoyed having the lingering scent of rose around me. It was a fresh, clean scent that reminded me of warmer days, which is exactly what a girl needs this time of year.
Instead of purchasing this product I thought to myself…I could so easily make this scent combo!
Rose & Jojoba Skin Care Oil
1 ½ oz. jojoba oil
8 ml rose essential oil ( I could only find one that was premixed with jojoba oil)
container to store oil
All you need to do is mix your oils and you are set…as simple as that.
I don’t like a very strong rose scented oil, so this was a perfect combination to have just a hint of rose. Feel free to add a little more rose if you’d prefer a more potent scent.
This light florally scent is uplifting and calming. Perfect for this time of year when you are ready for spring to show it’s sunny face. You can make a larger batch of rose body oil if you want to fully slather up in it, or in my case I like to just put a little dusting of it all over, so I’m not super oily. I will use more if I’m going to bed after I put it on.
It’s a super hydrating oil that helps your skin hold moisture to stay nice and soft. Plus, you can use it all over including your face. It’s very spa like if you ask me…just without the price!
I hope this oil combo helps tide you over until spring is in full gear. I know I’m more than ready!
