Make it yourself: Nourishing body oil

Make it Yourself

Each week during the summer Body & Soul features an easy recipe for a skin care product. Recipes make use of items readily available in Bermuda and care is taken that the ingredients are not expensive.

As eczema is the focus this week we are featuring a recipe from a local woman who said through avoiding myriad products, keeping rested and stress-free, she’s been able to rid herself of the condition. Sensitive to most mass-produced toiletries she makes her own.

Nourishing Body Oil

Mix one part cold-pressed grapeseed oil or rice bran oil with one part extra virgin olive oil. Add six drops of essential rose oil and six drops of lavender oil. Shake well and store in a cool place.

This oil is not only nourishing to the skin of eczema sufferers, but also to those without the condition. It is safe to use on adults and most children but check with your pediatrician if you have a baby or infant with eczema.
