Bio oil is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C etc. It contains Lavender Oil, Mineral Oil (as a base), Rosemary Oil, Chamomile Oil etc. and for the fragrance it contains rose oil and orange permitted color.
But as we all know mineral oil is not good for skin therefore to make it healthy we are going to use Jojoba oil and Coconut oil.
I have made this oil earlier as well. You can read this here.
But after so many hits and trails I come up with this homemade bio oil. And I have also added extract which is known for its fairness properties. It makes your skin glowing and fair.
To make this oil, you need –
- Jojoba (pronounce as ho-ho-ba) Oil and Coconut Oil in 50:50 proportion
- Vitamin e Oil – 20 Drops
- Rose Essential Oil – 10 Drops
- Sandalwood Essential Oil – 10 Drops
- Licorice Extract – 10 Drops
- A dark bottle to store (I am reusing my old face serum bottle)
Mix all the ingredients in a dark bottle and mix well.
Now let’s talk about the benefits of all the ingredients used.
Jojoba Oil: It is the most common oil to treat acne, sunburn, inflammations and scaling of skin. It is the most common carrier oil for the essential oil uses.
It is a best skin moisturizer and healer. It is suitable for all skin type. In fact the texture and use of sebum is very similar to jojoba oil. So when you apply this oil our skin automatically produces less sebum oil. It naturally slow down the sign of aging. Its rich in vitamin e, B-Complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium etc. it doesn’t clog and pores, great for acne prone skin, reduces the sebum production which means it reduces the production of blackheads and whiteheads.
Coconut Oil: It is best night cream. Coconut oil if applied on burns can actually heal them. It got a soothing effect which decreases the intensity of burn and heals that area quickly. Moreover, it contains Capric /Caprylic/Lauric acid which got a strong disinfectant and antimicrobial properties.
