DOSAGE OF EO'S

I only want to add that when useing EO's in your homemade facial brews it's important not to overdose as that can cause more harm than good. An easy rule of dosage to remember:

half the amount of drops to the amount of liquid.

So if you've got 50 ml of oil,cream or gel use no more than 25 drops of EO in total. If you are sensitive, or useing EO's for the first time - less is better than maximum.

250 ml = 8.4 Fl.oz = max 125 drops
150 ml = 5.07 fl.oz = max 75 drops
50 ml = 1.69 fl.oz = max 25 drops
15 ml = 0.5 fl.oz = max 7 drops
5 ml = 0.16 fl.oz = max 3 drops

You can always make a mixture, a synergy of oils separately and add that to whatever oil or cream you want...can make the putting together easier to get right.

SUGAR SCRUB - found this recipe a while back somewhere on the net and was amazed when I tried it.

It is for super soft exfoliated skin - seems to do an even better job than aspirin masks for me: (use on face and body - just be gentle on sensitive and delicate skin)

Glycerin (one bottle)
White, granulated sugar (enough to make a nice thick but not completely solid mix)
A few drops of your favorite EOs.
(You can also add Vit. C, etc.)

For an added boost you can leave it on like a mask before or after your gentle scrubbing - but be prepared for drips! And, don't wait for it to dry, - it won't! Very Happy

I'm not sure to be honest. I've used my Vit C tonic (as I've chosen to name it - feeling an inert need to be different these days - ha ha) every day, either just the once or both morning and night. The concoction I made up is almost finnished (see "recipee" above), so I think the next one is going to be a teeny bit stronger. I've just in the last couple of days developed a cystic spot on my jawline and it's the type that leaves a discolouration for months - so I'm going to specifically treat it with vit-c and see what happens...
I've gone bananas on the aspirin mask though Laughing , useing it more or less every other day. I make up a portion before each use and make it a little bit different each time - it's such fun!

Never heard of them, sorry! Most of us buy our supplies from www.thepersonalformulator.com and I can also personally recommend www.aroma-pure.com.

Good luck and have fun!

I am moving this post I made in the thread "what bath & body products are you using at the moment":

-Salt Scrub for Body: Dead Sea Salt, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, sea kelp (mix until desired texture).

-Sugar Scrub for Body: Turbinado Sugar, apricot kernel, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, honey (mix until desired texture).

-Body Balm or Lip Balm: (1/3 oil) sweet almond oil, olive oil (1/3 butter) shea butter, cocoa butter, (1/3 wax) beeswax. Melt all. Add Vit. E caplets and pour into containers, no preservative needed.

-Whipped Butters: shea butter or mango butter. Melt and whip with hand mixer until fluffy, put in jar, no preservative needed. If you want a fluffier whipped butter, add your favorite oil (sweet almond, etc.). 10% Oil, 90% Butter. Melt, whip with handmixer until achieved fluffiness.

Very Happy

I have been lurking here for a couple of days, originally popping in to read product reviews. I was quickly seduced by the idea of home-made products. This weekend I began using the OCM and ACV toners on my combination, acne-prone skin. The toner stinks to high heaven, so shall have to see if the benefits outweigh the stink factor. Hubby wouldn't even kiss me after I put it on. So far I'm really digging the OCM, just have to see how my skin reacts to it over the next week or so.

Thanks for the great ideas!

Welcome from the shadows! On the AVC - yes - it stinks to high heaven, lol but - if you add EO's to it the smell is dramatically reduced. Re-read the posts on the AVC you'll find some suggestions there. I think I added Lemon and Ylang Ylang to mine.

Great site - lots of fun stuff on there. I did some quick price comparisons for this site and the personal formulator on the carrier oils only and found the personal formulator to be a better value. But - the site you recommend offers products that the personal formulator doesn't. So....off to place a new order, lol!! Thanks Jelly!!

*edited to note - essence supply does offer 20% discount on US orders, better...

Hey, can any of my fellow DIYers provide me with a source from which to purchase such ingredients as “marshmallow root extract,” licorice extract and tumeric extract? I’m working on a homemade version of Jurlique’s Deep Penetrating Cream Mask, sans Calendula extract as it seems to give many of us breakouts a couple of days after use. I’ve already come up with a pretty good “base” for the mask but I’d like to include the marshmallow and licorice, if possible but I haven’t been able to locate a source to buy it from and – unfortunately – TPF doesn’t seem to carry those type of “speciality” ingredients.

TIA,
Carrie

I just posted this in another thread but thought it needed to be included here as well....

You have mentioned other type of cleansing oil. What would that be?
You can use any type of oil that you want for OCM -- even that Extra Virgin Olive Oil that you've probably already got in your kitchen cupboard right now! Or a mixture or blend of two or more oils, depending upon the needs of your skin. Some oils, like castor, are more "astrigent."

Here is a basic primer on the different types of oils that I have cut and pasted from the Personal Formulator's downloadable PDF catalog:

• Avocado oil - nourishes and restores dry, dehydrated skin. It is rich in It is rich in vitamin A, B1, B2, D, E and panothenic acid.

• Borage oil - It contains gamma linolenic acid, a fatty acid used in cosmetics as an emollient, antioxidant, and cell regulator. It is used to promote healthy skin growth and is an anti-inflammatory agent.

• Castor oil - it is an excellent emollient (leaves the skin soft & smooth), good hair conditioner (repairs & nourishes the hair, stimulates the scalp), moisturizer & lubricant (gives shine to lipsticks & lip balms). It can be added to formulas as is to the oil phase. Castor oil is used in creams, lotions, hair care products, bath oil, sun & baby care products, lip care products. It is extremely useful for brittle nails and dry chapped skin.

• Grapeseed oil - It is an emollient oil that also has good antioxidant properties.

• Jojoba oil - This oil is an excellent moisturizer; emollient (prevents transdermal water loss), anti-wrinkle agent (provides smoothness & softness), good lubricant (without oil film,
penetrates the skin), protects partly from UV radiation (SPF about 4). It penetrates skin rapidly and nourishes, softens and moisturizes.

• Kukui oil - It is high in essential fatty acids and is helpful for softening and restructuring skin. It
is an excellent choice for sensitive skin and skin that is mature, damages and wrinkled.

• Lanolin oil - This oil is used as an emollient, conditioner and moisturizer. It has limited water-in-oil emulsifier properties. The typical use is 2-10% in skin care applications such as creams and lotions.

• Macademia Nut oil - It is similar to the sebum produced by human skin. It is high in palmitoleic acid and an excellent for skin conditioning after exposure to the sun. Its absorption rate is high and blends well in emulsions.

• Safflower oil - It is used for its moisturizing properties and will not irritate skin or aggravate acne. It is used in skin care formulations such as creams and lotions and in lip balms.

• Sesame oil - This oil has aromatic, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Sesame Oil
has sunscreening properties SPF 4 on its own. It is used in skin care formulations such as creams and lotions and in massage oils.

• Soy Bean oil - It has natural moisturizing factors and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is used in skin care formulations such as creams and lotions and in massage oils. <Note: you've probably already got soy bean oil in your cupboard too -- have a look at the label on your bottle of Crisco vegetable oil!!>

• Sunflower oil - it contains vitamins A, C, D, E and is high in linoleic acid. This oil will not irritate skin or aggravate acne. It is used in skin care formulations such as creams and lotions and in massage oils.

• Sweet Almond oil - It is an excellent emollient (leaves the skin soft, smooth &amp; conditioned), good nourishing and revitalizing effect (penetrates well the skin), moisturizer; lubricant, heals injured and chapped skin. This oil is used in creams, lotions, protecting and healing creams, ointments, bath oils, makeup &amp; sun care products, personal &amp; baby care products.

• Wheat germ oil - It is a rich source of vitamin A, E, D and in protein. This oil has nourishing and antioxidant effects. It can be used in hair and skin care applications, particularly anti-wrinkle creams.

• Apricot Kernal oil - It is an excellent softener for the delicate skin around the eyes, mouth and neck.


The above list is not all-inclusive, there are many other oils out there, it is merely provided to give you an idea about all the different types of oils that can be used in OCM. Pick out 2-3 that suit your skin type and/or needs and begin experimenting. There's no law that says you absolutely must include castor oil in your OCM blend in order to use the oil cleansing method successfully.

HTH,
Carrie

Girl - you slip me a tough one from time to time...thinking there must be another name that's could be used for this as I had a tough time locating it (* while searching answered my own dumb question Rolling Eyes Daucus Carota Sativa Root Extract (Carrot) ) but.....here ya go. Price seems reasonable, though I didn't look at their shipping costs (that's where they get ya!!)

HOMEMADE MAC FIX+


Why spend 18 dollars on MAC's Studio Fix: Fix+ (which was raved about on makeupalley.com) when you can make it right at home?
I gathered the ingredients from the Skindeep site, and gee, it's not that different from gathering a cheap batch at home.

Here's what I got. Mix all this in a nice spray-bottle:

* Fill half of the bottle (whatever is your preference) with Rosewater (which I chose to replace the natural spring water that MAC uses, simply cause it smells nice Laughing )

*Add glycerin---vegetable glycerine works well for dehydrated skin, since it's a humectant (spelling? haha), nourishes skin, and helps to keep moisture in.

*Get some cucumber in there (half or less a cucumber will do). Squeeze juice out, or blend it. I blended mine---best to scrape off the peel of it first.

* Chamomile or any essential oil you choose. Graspeseed oil, Jojoba, Primrose...

* Something with a good amount of Caffeine. I used a green tea bag, soaked it in hot water, then added the content to the mix.

* MAC uses Castor Oil, so I put a little in. Not too much, I think it'd make you wayy too oily. I put barley a teaspoon.

* Add a little Vitamin C if you wish

Mix it all together, and spray over your makeup when you're feeling a little murky and muddy. It'll instantly lift you up, make you feel nice, and set your foundation to a nice glow. Especially mineral foundation.
I know some people that mix the Fix+ with their foundations. Apparently it hydrates the skin and helps to avoid dry patches.
It leaves a dewy finish, but you won't feel oily (depending on how you make the batch, that is).
I like soft dewy finishes, so I'm rather excited.

Have fun!

Hi All,
I just discovered EDS a few days ago and am bummed I didn't find it sooner!
I love the DIY stuff, all your tips and recipes are great.
I'm a big fan of the Miracle Whip Mask/Peel, even after trying many of the newer expensive peels, I keep going back to it. It really takes off all the old dead skin (like an enzyme mask/peel) but is so mild, I can use it on my eyelids (You have to get used to the fumes first, though, so be careful!).
After reading about the Asprin mask, I was inspired to combine the two. It beats everything else I've ever tried! Better than any of the expensive facials or products I've spent money on through the years. I feel like I've just discovered the light bulb. Definitely my new HG!
I combined 1 tablespoon MW (has to be original formula, low fat and olive oil don't seem to work) with 3 crushed aspirin, spread it on and after 20 minutes, began to "roll" it off with my fingertips. All the dead skin just sloughs off! Kind of gross but great results! Afterwards, I really cleaned my skin well (otherwise, I break out, which I am very prone to) and followed up with Dr. H's toner and rejuvinating mask. My skin has never been so smooth! If you try this, make sure to really moisturize well and use sun screen, all those new cells need protection.
Thanks you guys! This is great!
Silke


Determined to love the aspirin mask even though I haven't had much success with it, I tried the above aspirin - MW combo. WOW! None of the dryness that I had previously experienced with other aspirin combos! This one is so gentle but effective all I was left with was clean, soft, balanced skin. I washed the remnants of the mask (the crumbs after the massage?) off with Cetaphil and a washcloth. My acne prone skin does not seem to be aggravated by it either! THANKS SILKE! It's my new HG too!!! Very Happy
