Hello, Autumn! A Warming Body Oil Recipe To Help Remove The Chill

Hi, there Ladies and Gents!

It is finally my favorite time of year again! Yippee! The sky is turning a paler blue, the air is beginning to get significantly cooler, leaves are beginning to change gorgeous shades of gold, orange, and red.

Soon it will be time to carve pumpkins and attend Halloween parties. With this beautiful change of weather and season, I thought I would switch things up a little and share a nice DIY body oil recipe with you. This is a unisex blend that will work for women and men alike.

As the air gets colder and drier it is important to give your skin a little extra TLC to help keep it smooth and supple. I have designed this recipe to be non-greasy, soothing, invigorating, and warming with a sweet, spicy herbal scent reminiscent of this time of year. It is a great pick me up and is also therapeutic.

You can use it to help feel refreshed each morning or for sore muscles after an intense workout. It may even help fight off colds or the flu. I chose moisture boosting, anti-aging, nourishing, carrier oils and warming essential oils to help take the chill off while keeping your skin lovely, plus you will smell amazing! This also makes a great gift.

Ingredients Spotlight ~

Make sure that the carrier oils you purchase are organic and cold pressed. Some oils are solvent or heat extracted which damages the oil and causes it to lose vital nutrients and the non-organic oils also contain pesticides. These are the last things you want to be smeared on your skin. So, make sure it is clearly stated on the label and brand’s website organic and cold pressed. The essential oils should also be organic and steam distilled so as to avoid any toxins.

the natural makeup review Pumpkin Seed Oil

Pumpkin Seed Oil ~ Rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids as well as antioxidants. It has tremendous benefits for the skin in terms of retaining moisture, fighting free radicals and maintaining a youthful appearance. It is anti-inflammatory and is high in linoleic acid which is very healing.

the natural makeup review apples

Apple Seed Oil Light and easily absorbed into the skin. This precious oil helps soften, hydrate and protects the skin. It is high in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous. It has been shown to boost collagen, is anti-aging, contains antioxidants that act as a natural sunscreen, treats and prevents acne.

the natural makeup review pomegranate

Pomegranate Seed Oil ~ Super emollient yet also easily absorbed into the skin. Pomegranate seed oil contains a unique polyunsaturated oil called “punicic acid”, an omega 5 fatty acid, which has strong anti-inflammatory properties making it great for use on sensitive, dry or inflamed skin. The oil fends off free radicals to keep skin aging at bay. It also provides protection against sun damage and wrinkles and helps improve overall skin texture.

the natural makeup review ginger root benefits

Ginger Essential Oil ~ This pungent and spicy oil comes from the same root used in cooking. It is very warming and soothing oil. Toning and antioxidant properties that help to improve the look of skin, heal scars, improve stretch marks, has major anti-aging benefits, evens skin tone and improves texture. It also contains antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac and stimulating properties.

the natural makeup review clove oil

Clove Essential Oil ~ Sweet and spicy. Clove oil boasts excellent antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac and stimulating properties. It helps combat fatigue by increasing blood circulation. Acts as a cardiovascular booster and brain stimulating tonic. Soothes and relieves muscle fatigue and much, much more.

**Note – This oil is quite potent so please do a skin test before using it on your whole body.

the natural makeup review frankincense oil

Frankincense Essential Oil ~ Slightly sweet, spicy, pungent, and herbal. This ancient oil is great for nearly any skin condition from burns, rashes, cuts, scrapes, to oozing sores. It’s also fantastic for mature, prematurely aging, and environmentally stressed skin. Full of calming, soothing, anti-aging, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and skin refining properties.

the natural makeup review sandalwood oil

Sandalwood Essential Oil ~ Soft, woodsy, and slightly balsamic. This beautiful oil is known for being an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, astringent, diuretic, disinfectant, emollient, sedative and tonic substance.
