Essential Oils for Lotion Making
Essential oils for lotion
Part of the fun and creativity of making your own lotion is getting to choose the scents that you include in your project. Essential oils are a great way to do that, but not all essential oils are the same. While essential oils are natural oils extracted from plants, some can be irritating to the skin. That’s why we’ve assembled a list of essential oils that are appropriate for use in DIY lotions, body butters, and other moisturizing products. To ensure that you have the information you need to make the right choice for your skin care products, we put down all of our performance and safety notes right on the product page. We also include a Safety Data Sheet for our essential oils. This means that you have all the information you need right at your fingertips. Because essential oils are oils, they mix readily with the oil phase of your lotion, meaning that they won’t separate out from the other oils in your lotion. Some essential oils may even have health benefits. Some may help soothe dry or rashy skin, and some are shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Remember, you should never use essential oils directly on your skin without diluting them in a product or with a carrier oil. Adding scents to lotions and other skincare products makes using them a more indulgent and luxurious experience. Studies show that smells can trigger memories, can make us feel calm, and can energize us. Fragrance is a great way to practice self-care. What better way to incorporate aromatherapy into your life than through products you use and enjoy every day? So take a look through our essential oils for lotion and find the one that will give you the most luxurious experience, whether it’s for after shower moisturizing or daily use. We have one that’s perfect for you or for your friends and family, and we’re sure you’ll find your new favorite.
