Valentine’s Day is approaching!
Do you know how to please your second half? Are you still looking for the perfect, romantic, personal surprise? Last year, I made these personalized chocolate tablets. This year, I want to share this special vintage love potion — a voluptuous DIY massage blend with sweet almond and apricot oils.
This love potion will wrap your soulmate into a relaxing, ecstatic mood with a subtle scent of rose and plumeria. Even Cupid could not resist this delicate elixir! The oil benefits anything it touches. You can use this oil to nourish everything from your cuticles to split ends in your hair.
I detailed the recipe below. I hope you enjoy a healthy, romantic Valentine’s day!
– A carrier (base) oil such as sweet almond, apricot or avocado oils
– A preservative oil such as vitamin E, which will keep the oil safe to use for up to 6 months
– Essential oils for fragrance — I used Oriental Rose essential oil and plumeria fragrance
– Dry rose blossom buds and/or petals — these will infuse the oil after a few days
Don’t forget that essential oils needs to be used in moderation. They can be dangerous if overdosed, used on animals, or if you are pregnant. However, high quality essential oils, when properly used, have great relaxing and revitalizing properties!
For optimal results, use tinted glass bottles to make sure light won’t denature essential oils over time. Keep your DIY massage oil out away from heat and sun! For this recipe, I was happy to find these mini roll-on bottles. They are ideal to keep the rose buds and petals inside!
You can download the labels by clicking on the image bellow. Then print them on a letter size label sheet, cut them, and they are ready to ornate your bottle!
Step 1 : Gather all ingredients. You should sterilize bottles, measuring cups and all instruments that are not plastic by “cooking” them in boiling water for five minutes. With a pipette, pour essential oils, fragrance and vitamin E into your bottle.Step 2 : carefully add the flower buds and petals. Add the almond and apricot oils blend. Softly shake the bottle to mix all the ingredients together.Step 3 : print, cut and stick the labels on the bottles. Don’t forget to test the oil on a tiny part of your body before using it, to make sure you don’t develop an allergic reaction.
