Homemade Body Splash!

Gone are the days of perfume for me.  I LOVE perfume, it’s one of the few things that makes me feel girlie after 2 kids!  I have a post on how to make perfume but I thought I would mix it up with something I could spray on after a shower to smell extra good!  Turns out, making a body splash could not be easier!  And-When you add an oil you have yourself a MOISTURIZING body spray!

You might be thinking why not just wear perfume? Well, there are so many chemicals in perfume.  It is one of the worst products you can use.  Perfume is full of toxins and obviously artificial fragrances that cause hormone issues to say the least.

To make a body splash all you need is Witch Hazel (vodka will work too), and essential oils!  If you want to quench your skin you can add an oil of your choice.  For mine, I added olive oil-I love how the smell mixes with my choice of essential oils.  You could use almond oil, avocado oil, macadamia nut oil, apricot oil etc.  So, let’s get started!

Homemade Body Splash

1 cup water
1 TBSP Witch Hazel
1 TBSP Olive Oil
20-30 drops Essential oils of your choice.

My suggestions for essential oils in your body splash are always Lavender mixed with something warm.  Sandalwood is one of my favorites.  I love adding lemon essential oil as well.  Peppermint and Rosemary are nice and refreshing together.  I also love Bergamot.  Bergamot pairs well with lavender or lemon.  If you want something light and fresh, citrus oils are great-grapefruit, lemon and sweet orange will give you a burst of energy!  Get creative-add more drops of the scent you love the most and then tailor the rest to your preference.  Always use Pure Certified essential oils.  I love Spark Naturals.  Use jenniraincloud promo code for a 10% discount!

Here are some of my suggestions….

15 drops Lavender, 10 drops Sandalwood, 5 drops Lemon
20 drops Lavender, 10 drops Peppermint
20 drops Bergamot, 10 drops Lemon
20 drops Lavender, 10 drops Bergamot
10 drops Grapefruit, 10 drops Lemon, 10 drops Sweet Orange
20 drops Rosemary, 10 drops Sweet Orange
10 drops Peppermint, 10 drops Rosemary

Get creative!   Remember to always shake your body splash before using.  Oil and water separate.  Spray this after a shower and enjoy the aromatherapy as well as the moisture.  Your skin will drink it up!
