Being able to make something that you can be proud of can be such a fulfilling and wonderful experience. If you are able to make something that you can then share with your friends and family it is even better. This is one of the reasons that I think that making your own personalized essential oil infused lotions is a great craft to get into. It is rather easy and expensive and then you always have something that you can share with your friends and family that they will love.
There are a few different ways that you can make essential oil infused body lotions but for the most part the general idea is always the same. Essential oils are generally not difficult to find but it is important that you buy high quality essential oils from a respected retailer like Plant Therapy. Since you are putting these things on your body it is important to know that the essential oils that you are using are not diluted with any kind of unknown or questionable substances. Part of the best part of making your own essential oil infused lotions is to experiment around a little bit and to choose the kind of essential oils that you really like. This is why I think it is better to get a few different kinds of essential oils that you will like and try them all out instead of just going with one or two different scents.
After you have picked out your essential oils it is time to find the right lotion to mix it with. Whatever you like is up to you but I find that plain, gentle and scentless lotions are the best way to go. Generally that part is not so important and up to you though. Once you have your lotions ready it is time to go!
Start small when it comes to the amount of essential oils that you mix in with the lotion and then if you want more you can always add more. The difficult part about mixing your own essential oil infused lotions is the mixing part. This can be made easier or more difficult depending on the kind of bottle your lotion comes in. I always find it is easier to dump out all of the lotion into a big bowl, add the organic essential oils, mix it up in the bowl and then putting it back into the bottle works a lot better than anything else. It is a bit of work but at least at the end of it all your lotion and the essential oils are actually mixed up. If you are going to be giving your essential oil infused body lotions away to friends or family members, it can also be nice to buy special little jars for the lotions. This way it looks nicer, more personalized, and you don’t have to worry about trying to get all of the lotion back in the bottle again. Pretty much great and easier all around.
