Making Your Own Home-Made Natural Skin Care Products: Recipes

  • Ointments
  • Massage Oils
  • Bath Oils


Making your own home-made natural skin care products is fun, but you do need to be a little cautious, especially when it comes to using essential oils. Use less rather than more!

Start off only using 1-2 drops and see how the product you have made effects you and your skin. Not everybody is the same and some skins react more easily than others.

Always test your home-made skin care products on a small area of the inside of your forearm before you start applying it anywhere else. If your skin on your forearm reacts, don't use the product anywhere else and start again.



To make a 50 gram jar of ointment, use the following:

  1. 45 grams of Bees Wax (melt in saucepan), then
  2. Add 15 ml of herbal extract and stir
  3. Pour into jar and let cool

This basic recipe can be used to make Arnica, Calendula or another ointment of your choice. You could also add 2-3 drops of an essential oil, such as Lavender, Geranium, or which ever you prefer.

The applications are not just for facial skin care, you can make a rub for aching joints using Arnica, Comfrey or other herbs that are indicated for aching joints and muscles or you can make a Lip-balm using the same basic recipe. All you need to do is choose the right herb or essential oil for the specific purpose you would like your home-made natural skin care products to achieve.

For a chest cold, you could substitute the 15ml of herbal extract with 2 drops of Eucalyptus Oil, 2 drops of Pine Oil and 2 drops of Wintergreen Oil. Rub this ointment onto your chest and a little under the nose to help you breath a little more easily.


Massage Oil

Making a home-made massage oil is quite simple, use the following steps as a guide:

  1. Use 30ml of Apricot Kernel Oil plus 30ml of Extra-light Virgin Olive Oil
  2. Add 20 drops of Essential oil of Lavender

This massage oil would be very useful if you have small children and you'd like to help them go to sleep. Gently massage their backs, arms and legs and chances are they'll be asleep before you finished.

If you want to make a massage oil for a sore back or stiff and aching joints, use the same process as above, but only add 2-3 drops of Wintergreen Oil, 2-3 drops of Arnica Oil and 2-3 drops of Peppermint oil. DO NOT USE MORE THAN 2-3 DROPS OF EACH OF THESE OILS PER 60MLS OF OIL.


Bath Oils

The simplest and easiest way to make a bath oil is to bland 3-5 essential oils into a 15ml bottle:

  1. Add 10 ml of vegetable-base Glycerine
  2. Add 2-3 drops of 3-5 different essential oils.
  3. Shake well each time before using your bath oil.

That's it. You now have your very own home-made Bath oil.

Again you can experiment with different combination of essential oils to achieve the ambiance you'd like to have while taking a nice relaxing bath.


Have fun and enjoy making your own home-made natural skin care products.
