Massage and Moisturizing Oils

Today I made up some oils for massage and moisturizing. They are really easy to make, and can be very pretty in a glass jar with a hand-made label or ribbon. The one in the odd shaped glass is a massage oil blend (but it can do well for moisturizing too) and is a very pretty light green. The other has a golden yellow cast, and is my daily moisturizing oil. Some of my handmade soap (lavender and rosemary moisture bar) is in front wrapped as a gift.

Homemade Oils

Here are the recipes if you care to use them. If you share them, please give me credit as they are my concoctions 🙂

~15 drop bergemont essential oil
