Beard balms are a fantastic way to support Dad’s with beards, but what about an amazing DIY Body & Massage Oil for Father's Day to give him a real treat?
Massage isn’t just for women. It’s something that can be helpful not only to the body, but also to the mind. It can help us relax, clear our heads and so much more!
This recipe is designed to do just that with just a couple carrier oils and essential oils. The best part is that it is quick and easy to make!
IMPORTANT HOUSEKEEPING NOTES:
Any time you make something for anyone it’s important remember a few things. The first is to make sure you always wear gloves, a mask, and goggles. If possible, make sure you have fresh clothes on or a lab coat. These not only protect you from over exposure to essential oils, but from accidents that are often unforeseen even in the most practiced of formulators. Wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) also protects your loved ones from you.
Additionally, it’s extremely important to make sure you sterilize your workspace prior to gathering your ingredients. You can use isopropyl alcohol (70%) and spray your counters – don’t wipe it though. Spray it and let it set for a few minutes. Any excess can then be wiped.
Any dishes and equipment you use should also be sterilized. For this recipe that means your glass stir rod, tempered glass bowl/jar, and tins. Some formulators, such as the Soap Queen recommend using a 5% solution of water and bleach to sterilize.
Now, go get to sterilizing and grab your PPE. After that you’re ready to start making your first gift for Father’s Day!
FATHER’S DAY DIY BODY & MASSAGE OIL INGREDIENTS:
TIP: Use a glass stir rod for stirring.
Additional notes: There may be a small amount of the body and massage oil that will not fit into the bottle. You can add it to a cotton ball or use on your own skin. Consider this your treat for making something for Dad!
