DIY Nourishing Body Oil Blend


By now you probably know that we love using essential oils here at My Grandma Ben, from diffusing them to lift our spirits to cleaning around the house – but we especially love using them in our beauty routine.

Gone are the days of unfulfilling shower routines – get ready to say hello to body oils! Adding your favourite essential oils to a nourishing base of sweet almond oil is a simple and inexpensive way to create a luxurious body oil to use after showering every day, or whenever your skin is in need of a little extra TLC.

Essential oils are extremely potent and need to be blended into a neutral carrier oil, like sweet almond oil, before applying them to your body. A 2% concentration of essential oils is the ideal strength.

To make it ridiculously easy for you to mix up your own blends, we’ve done all the maths ahead of time, and here’s everything you need to know. 

What you need to know
  • There are 20 ‘drops’ in 1ml of essential oil.

  • We recommend making 100ml of body oil at a time. This is a good amount to decide if you like the scent you’ve made (but most importantly to make the maths super easy)!

  • To make a 2% strength body oil, add 40 drops of essential oil to 100ml of sweet almond oil.

  • Sweet almond oil is our favourite base oil as it is well balanced and suits nearly all skin types.

How to make your blend
  • Counting as you go, add 40 drops of essential oil to a 100ml glass or metal bottle. Shake well to blend the oils.
  • Top up with 100ml of sweet almond oil. Seal and shake well again to blend it all together.
  • Store in your bathroom cupboard away from heat and direct light.
  • Smother all over your body as soon as you jump out of the shower when your skin is still a little damp – this is the best way for the oil to absorb into your skin.
  • The scent will actually improve over time as the different essential oils work their magic together.

Here is one of our favourite blends using the 40-drop method above – it’s the perfect combination of grounding, floral and fresh citrus scents.

Our favourite nourishing body oil blend
  • 10 drops of sweet orange essential oil

  • 10 drops of grapefruit essential oil

  • 8 drops of lavender essential oil

  • 7 drops of patchouli essential oil

  • 5 drops of frankincense essential oil 

Of course, you can use any combination of oils you like. If you don’t have a variety of oils on hand, an even simpler way of making a body oil is to add 40 drops of your favourite Mt. Retour blend to 100ml of sweet almond oil. We love the Oriental Bliss blend.

Important note: If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any existing health problems, always talk with your healthcare professional or a qualified aromatherapist before using essential oils.

    This is a testimony of DR ISIKOLO Spiritual help for me is going to be declared all over the internet to publish his name to people and allow others who have relationship problems to be helped by him. Trust is the key to a successful spell. My name is Amy Dylan and Miami. I purposefully amazed and I remember that it is just within 2 days of contacting DR ISIKOLO Spiritual that my long lost relationship with my ex wife was finally over. I reconnected with my ex wife on the 28th of September after contacting DR ISIKOLO on the 26th of September through his email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com and within 2 days, my ex wife came back to me after separating from her for over 8 years. It was a miracle because I never believed it would be possible. I am still surprised that as I am writing this testimony, she is still sleeping in our matrimonial bed. I am indeed happy sir. Thank you for helping me and I pray other wonderful people give wonderful testimonies too about you. Get in touch with DR ISIKOLO Spiritual to save your relationship.

    The best place to find love solutions, contact DR ISIKOLO now and be rest assured of the solution you need.
    I had issues with my husband and he moved to another city and he cut off communication with me. I find every means possible to reach out to him so that we can resolve our differences but to no avail. His mom and siblings didn’t even know his where about. I was depressed and messed up emotionally and I had to seek help to get him back to me before another lady takes over my place in his life. So I had to contact DR ISIKOLO who I explained everything to and was willing to help me and he did. He did a love reconciliation bond for me and my man and unknown to me that the result will manifest after 48 hours as he promised. My man returned back and came for me and I was amazed that I can say now that the love and happiness has been restored and we are more happier together and all I see now is forever with him and I am so thankful to DR ISIKOLO for his kindness to me and other people out there.
