Luxurious Body Oil

Posted by kacem Post a Comment

Luxurious Body Oil. Nourishing, conditioning, and moisturizing, body oils are a luxurious alternative to lotions. Lotion contains up to 80 percent water that evaporates off of your skin with little therapeutic value. However, a properly formulated body oil is pure, concentrated moisture that is rich in botanical nutrients.

HELPFUL HINTS

Pure, undiluted jojoba oil is generally considered to have a long shelf life of 2 or more years if stored out of direct sunlight. It is expensive, but if you desire a longer shelf life for any of the products that use a liquid oil in this book, you can substitute jojoba oil. Substituting jojoba oil will change the consistency and nutrient content of the final product and prolong freshness, but the shelf life will be dependent on the sum total of the ingredients in the recipe.
