I am someone who likes to shower in the mornings, and I am usually in a hurry to get to work. Simply applying body lotion post-shower can be too time-consuming for my hectic mornings. With the dry weather season approaching, I need to take the time to add some extra moisture to my skincare routine to avoid scaly knees and elbows!
I have created an easy, natural, and budget-friendly way to moisturize in the morning.
DIY Rose Moisturizing Body Oil Spray:
- 1/4 cup of Macadamia Nut Oil
- 1/4 cup of Avocado Oil
- 1/2 cup of Rose Water (or distilled water)
- 2 drops of Rose Oil
- Few drops of Cacao Absolute
Pour it all into an 8oz Glass Spray Bottle and shake it up.
Application: After finishing my shower, while my skin is still soaking wet and standing in the tub, I mist my skin with the oil spray. Then I quickly use my hands to smooth the oil over my skin to ensure an even application. I gently pat my skin dry with a towel. The process only takes a minute!
I love the romantic rose fragrance, and the cacao adds some depth and warmth to the scent. The best part about this recipe is that you can customize it to fit your needs. You can use other moisturizing oils such as sweet almond oil or olive oil. You can substitute other essential oils instead of rose such as lavender.
