Choose and use essential body oils


Almond oil

Extracted from almond seeds, almond oil contains skin-healthy fats such as oleic acid, linoleic acid and saturated fatty acids.

Apricot kernel oil

This is a good solution for those who are allergic to oils that are derived from nuts such as almond oil, cocoa butter or shea butter.

Jojoba oil

Although it is called an oil, it is actually a wax that is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant.

Sunflower, almond and jojoba oils have effective moisturizing properties

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is considered a versatile oil with moisturizing and improving effects on hair and skin.

Sunflower oil

Sunflower oil is extracted from sunflower seeds which are rich in fatty acids such as linoleic, palmitic and stearic acid.

Olive oil

It would be remiss to talk about skin care oils without mentioning olive oil.

Rice bran oil

Rice bran oil is extracted from the germ and husk of rice grains with a composition similar to peanut oil with the main fatty acids being oleic, linoleic and palmitic acid.

Choose and use essential body oils


One of the most common uses of oil is for body massage.

For those who like to bathe, a spoonful of oil added to warm water is the fastest and most skillful way to moisturize the skin.

Additionally, you can also combine these oils with natural essential oils such as ylang-ylang, lavender, rose, jasmine or chamomile to help relax the mind and body.

Finally, to create your own scent, you can mix essential oils together to get a desired scent and dilute with a carrier oil at a ratio of 1:20.
