Best Carrier Oil for Patchouli Body Oil Perfume

Are you looking for a natural way to moisturize your skin? I recently created this Patchouli Body Oil blend for a friend. She isn't very familiar with essential oils but knew that she liked citrus scents and needed something to help moisturize and nourish her skin.

Sweet almond oil instantly came to mind for a base because it is a great all-purpose carrier oil that has emollient properties. Then I thought...oh patchouli would be FABULOUS with some citrus oils!

Sweet almond oil is known for its many benefits, including the ability to improve skin complexion and elasticity. Additionally, it can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars. If you're looking for an earthy scent, patchouli may be a good essential oil to pair with almond oil.

Together, almond oil and patchouli make a wonderful combination that can benefit your skin in numerous ways. Try using this duo yourself and see how well it works for you!

DIY Patchouli Body Oil with Citrus Essential Oils

Check out this easy recipe for Patchouli Body Oil! Made with just a few simple ingredients, this oil is perfect for hydrating and restoring dry or damaged skin. Plus, the earthy scent of patchouli is thought to be relaxing and stress-relieving, making it the perfect choice for a soothing evening massage. It's also a great choice for people with dry or sensitive skin. 

You Need:

  • 8 drops Patchouli essential oil
  • 6 drops Orange essential oil (Sweet or Wild)
  • 6 drops Mandarin essential oil
  • 4 drops Tangerine essential oil
  • 2 oz Sweet Almond Oil
  • 2 oz lotion pump bottle

Directions:

Add essential oils and sweet almond oil to the lotion pump bottle. Place the cap on and roll the bottle between palms to blend the body oil together. You can use immediately but I find that the aroma is stronger the next day after the oils have had time to "mingle" together. This recipe is a 2% dilution (learn more about dilution here)

Recipe Tip: If you do not have the three different citrus oils, you can just use a total of 16 drops of what citrus oils you do have. None of the citrus oils in this blend are phototoxic so this blend is safe to use in the sun. Read more about phototoxic essential oils.
