Admittedly, it took me a while to wean myself off of products containing endocrine-disrupting phthalates, corrosive phenols and a bunch of other junk. Yes, these products delivered and they were all I knew—but yikes, when I learned how toxic they were, I did a 180! Part of that 180 was making my own body care products. Here’s one of my favorite body oils.
Body Oil Recipe
3 tablespoons fractionated coconut oil
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon castor oil
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
8 drops of essential oil of choice (I love 3 geranium + 3 Roman chamomile + 2 lavender)
Add ingredients to a 4-ounce plastic bottle. Shake well. Apply before stepping out of the shower while skin is still wet. Pat dry.
