How often do we decide to make a DIY recipe for the body? I think the most common recipes are for the face, the eyes specifically and perhaps a hair mask. The nurture and care our body needs too often slips our mind. This is why we’ve prepared a wonderful and easy body serum that can be made quickly and used right away.
Some may wonder why a serum and not a lotion? We know for a fact that our skin needs to be moisturized, especially after a shower. Serums are lightweight, intensive skin care items that care for the skin while allowing their ingredients to combat skin damage. Where there is damaged, scarred skin, a serum is the best choice for visible results. Serums can be used alone by those with naturally oilier skin, or under a moisturizer to help protect the hydration levels. During winter, it’s best to use moisturizer as well for extra hydration to help the skin cope with changing temperature and drying winds.
This body serum has certainly done wonders for our skin and we couldn’t wait longer to share the recipe!
We start by having our amber bottle, clean and sanitized with its atomizer ready to use. We made the first batch into a small one to test out, but it can be done in any size as long as the ratio is adjusted. First, the distilled water goes in. This takes up approximately 1/3 of the amber bottle. Next, roughly 2 tablespoons of avocado oil goes in the mix followed by several drops of jojoba oil. Lastly, for the final touch, add a few drops of vitamin E. Mix well and it’s ready to use. We apply it on our hands first to test out the consistency and then if there is no adjustment necessary, it’s ready to be applied on the skin!
Once again, keep in mind that these measurements are merely suggestive; there is no wrong doing in trying out what works best for each person. Depending on the consistency or needs, this recipe can be modified in many different ways and this why we love DIY recipes. Also, it’s important when choosing which ingredients to include to consider the needs of the skin. These ingredients combined are moisturizing, aim to repair damaged skin, help heal acne and eczema and ultimately, help with the oiliness of skin. If decided to use this serum on the hair, it repairs and hydrated damaged hair and supports its growth. If these aren’t enough reasons to make this serum and start using it ASAP, we’d be happy to send you a lengthy email detailing the benefits of it.

If after a few tryouts your skin reacts to this serum, perhaps an ingredient isn’t working in accordance to your skin type. Always be careful, even with 100% natural ingredients.
Rose water can be used as well to add that extra scent to the serum.
