Helichrysum Body Oil

Diperbarui: Apr 25

DIY Helichrysum Body Oil


I stopped buying body lotion 3 or 4 years ago. Alasannya simply pengen switch to natural products. Awalnya saya masih sempat beli body oil yang tersedia di pasaran. But then I realized, it is easy and inexpensive untuk bikin body oil sendiri. Probably bikin body oil ini is the easiest DIY yang pernah saya lakukan. Plus, body oil ini multipurpose lho, bisa dipakai di badan, bisa dipakai di rambut juga (dan untuk wajah juga bisa!)


Oil bikin kulit kita lembab dan sehat dengan cara yang mudah. Yes, oil seringkali dipersepsi bikin lengket dan greasy di kulit, tapi masalah ini bisa diatasi dengan pilihan oil yang kita pake kog. Pick fast absorbing (or combine it with average fast absorbing oil) oil for DIY body oil such as grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, canola oil, safflower oil, camellia seed oil and fractionated coconut oil (kita kenalnya dengan sebutan MCT oil). While average fast absorbing oil options are sunflower oil, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil dan kuikuinut oil (alias minyak kemiri).


I use duo combination of grapeseed oil and sunflower oil as the carrier oil for no lengket, no greasy body oil


Sunflower oil: to hydrate, soften, prevent moisture loss, defend against external damage, and facilitate the skin’s regeneration.


Grapeseed oil: to tighten and tone skin, protects against sun damage, and reduces the appearance of blemishes, wrinkles, and stretch marks.


While for essential oils, I use:


Helichrysum: the star of this recipe. It is well-known to restore skin and prevent signs of aging – helichhrysum isoften called as “The Everlasting Flower” or Immortelle flower karena warna bunganya tetap kuning meskipun sudah kering.


Carrot seed oil: to repair skin damage, tone muscles and tissue, and tighten skin to prevent it from sagging.


Equipment

  • Digital scale

  • Flipcap bottle ukuran 100ml

  • Glass beaker


Ingredients

  • 50gr Sun flower oil

  • 50gr Grape seed oil

  • 1gr Helichrysum essential oil

  • 1gr Carrot seed oil

  • A dash of calendula petals


How to Make

  1. Timbang semua bahan dengan menggunakan digital scale

  2. Masukkan ke dalam beaker

  3. Masukkan dried calendula petals to the bottle

  4. Tuang semua bahan yang sudah ditimbang dalam beaker ke botol

  5. Kocok botol agar semua bahan blended perfectly

  6. Your body oil is ready to use


Notes

Body oil ini tidak greasy, tidak lengket. Pas diaplikasikan ke kulit, teksturnya kurang licin, but it absorbs fast to the skin. Feel free untuk substitute pakai carrier oil lain, ataupun essential oil yang lain


Feel free to substitute dried calendula petals with other dried herbs. Dried herbs ini akan release aroma (dan benefits) di body oil ini.
