Yield: 1 3 oz bottle
Cost: $3-$5


  • 1 3oz bottle
  • small funnel or steady hand
  • dropper


  • 1.5 oz Castor oil cold pressed organic is best
  • 1.4 oz Avacodo oil cold pressed organic is best
  • 10 drops of one of these essential oils: rose, jasmine, or neroli These are what I use for the major scent, and they are my favorites.
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops copaiba essential oil organic if possible
  • 5 drops elemi or frankincense essential oil organic if possible


  • Put the funnel in the bottle or with a steady hand, pour your castor oil into your bottle, followed by your avacado oil
  • Add your essential oils – using the dropper if you don't have a flow reducer on your essential oil bottles.


Make sure your bottle is nice and clean before you get started.  I tend to run mine through the dishwasher and let it sanitize it for me!
With my essential oils, I tend to remove the flow reducers, as some oils some our super slow, and other almost fall out (waaaaay too fast).  I tend to use a dropper, because I do  remove that flow reducer.

Thanks so much for visiting! This is a basic recipe, there are so many other things you can add to it to make it your own. Coconut oil or Olive oil can be substituted for the Castor oil. Experiment! Let me know if you try it, or what tweaks you make to make it your own!!
