DIY Essential Oil Body Care Recipes

Welcome to Mama Z’s ever-growing collection of DIY essential oil body care recipes! Truth is, she’s a DIY machine and my children and I are indebted to her for helping us live in a toxic-free home. If you’ve following me for a while, you know that I am HUGE advocate for living in healthy clean dwelling places, and using all-natural non-toxic products for home and body.

Why I DIY

eoc-free_600x150

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has evaluated over 72,000 products and have ranked them in an easy-to-understand guide to make sure that people have a resource to keep their families safe. (1) Check it out for yourself. You’ll be surprised that even most “all natural” products aren’t what they seem to be!

Exposure to these toxins cannot be avoided, unless you make your own!

Just recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally issued a ruling that officially bans the use of triclocarban, triclosan, and 17 other dangerous chemicals in hand and body washes. These products have been marketed as being which being more effective than good ol’ fashioned soap and water and consumers have been mislead to purchasing them!

“Consumers may think antibacterial washes are more effective at preventing the spread of germs, but we have no scientific evidence that they are any better than plain soap and water,” Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) said. “In fact, some data suggests that antibacterial ingredients may do more harm than good over the long-term.”

Antibacterial product manufacturers have until 2017 to comply with the new law by removing all products from the market or that violate this ruling or remove antibacterial active ingredients. But this still isn’t enough to keep us safe. Triclosan is still in countless other products like deodorants, antiperspirants, body spray and toothpastes. For a list of products that include triclosan, click HERE.

Simply put: antibacterial products kill ALL the bacteria on your hands; including the GOOD bacteria you need for healthy skin and a properly functioning immune system. In fact, they have been shown to weaken your immune system!

Mama Z’s DIY Database

Any time Mama Z adds a new recipe to the blog, I will update this database so you can find them all in one place! These recipes will help you avoid toxic body care products and give you the confidence of knowing exactly what’s in the products you’re using.

Many of my recipes include variations for simple options made from an all-natural pre-made product that you an can add essential oils to. She calls these her “simple recipes” because there aren’t a lot of base ingredients to purchase and mixing them up is a breeze. Cause let’s face it, we don’t always have time to make everything from scratch!

Now Enjoy!

    From a webinar, I remember you mentioning a skin toner/tightener that Mama Z used in her “modeling” times. I’m bummed that I can’t find my notes! I have puffy eyelids at times and wondering what would work for those. Thanks for gathering and sharing all the great info!

    I am learning so much from you and Mama Z! You are both huge blessings to so many!

    My question is, is there an EO you can recommend to diminish the appearance of facial scars? I’ve been using lavender for awhile but haven’t noticed much difference. Wondering if there’s a more effective oil to try or if I need to be more patient? TYSM!!

      Hi Heather,

      Best recipe ever –> http://drericz.com/healing-skin-serum/

      Instead of 5 drops of lavender, try 2 drops lavender, 1 drop frankincense, 1 drop helichrysum and 1 drop sandalwood. 🙂

      Keep us posted!

      Hey Deborah,

      In the words of my buddy Katie the Wellness Mama: http://wellnessmama.com/2558/homemade-sunscreen/

      Many of the ingredients in this recipe have a natural SPF but since this is a natural recipe and has not been tested by a regulatory organization, I can’t make any claims or even guesses as to the combined SPF. The individual ingredients that are naturally SPF are:

      Almond Oil- SPF around 5
      Coconut Oil- SPF 4-6
      Zinc Oxide SPF 2-20 depending on how much used
      Red Raspberry Seed Oil SPF 25-50
      Carrot Seed Oil – SPF 35-40
      Shea Butter – SPF 4-6

    Do you make your own soap or do you buy Castile soap?

    I make my own lye soap. It is so good for my skin. I’m looking forward to reading about the shampoo and conditioner.

    So super excited to try the shampoo and conditioner!!! This has been the last thing on my list that will make my daily body care 100%! Toxin-free!!! Do you have a recommendation on oils to use for color-treated hair?

      Yay!!

      Carrot seed, red raspberry seed and others with natural SPF are great for color-treated hair…

    Thanks for all of the helpful information. I’ve been making and using the Healing Skin Serum and people have commented on how beautiful my skin is.

    I have a question – is there an EO for skin tags?

    Thanks,

      Skin tags? Lots of people use diluted frankincense, myrrh or helichrysum. 🙂

      I’ve had success using oregano. I put a drop on a Q-tip and then apply only to the skin tag.

    Hello Dr Z
    I really am hooked on Essential Oils now that I know I can use them for anything and everything. Please could you tell me what I could use for warts, I have so many on my body and it is so embarrassing. I would really appreciate it if you could give me this information.

    God bless. Claudette.

      Hi Claudette!

      Aren’t EOs the best!

      There’s no “wart cure” or anything, but I’ve heard that some diluted frankincense, myrrh and sandalwood can do wonders… 🙂

      100% pure Thuja oil (pronounced thoo-ya)! I order it from Amazon. We got it for dog warts and it works but most of the comments on the order page are about people warts disappearing. Our holistic vet says warts are because of a virus in the body manifesting as warts. Need to build up your immune system better.
      Has a strong smell but not bad smell. Really works!

    I appreciate all these recipes. They will make great Christmas gifts! I heard (I think) Dr. Z say the fir EO can heal a bone. Which kind of fir oil is it? Douglas or another? Also, do you have any EO advise for stomach migraines? I’d appreciate it if I can get some info. Thank you! Jan

          There isn’t much in the scientific literature about Parkinson’s and essential oils at this point, but Tai Chi shows a lot of promise –> http://drericz.com/tai-chi-for-tremors/
