Do you get dry skin in the winter months or from too much sun? Sometimes taking hot showers will cause dry skin and that paired with the other factors of winter or summer weather will cause that dry itchy skin. I love to apply an after-shower oil and so many products have harsh chemicals or the all-natural ones are expensive. I decided to make a few of my own personal products, and this after-shower body oil is one of the few I have made. There are times when a homemade product does not work as well, but this body oil does its job without having to spend the extra money.
I had all the ingredients on hand, so why not make my own and save some money. This post contains some affiliate links. Click here for my full disclosure policy.
I only had to purchase the dark glass bottles for my DIY shower oil. It is recommended to use dark glass bottles when using essential oils. The dark glass helps to protect the oil from light and using glass prevents the oil from penetrating into a plastic bottle.
DIY - After Shower Body Oil!
- 4 teaspoons Almond Oil
- 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
- 2 teaspoons Coconut Oil
- 20 drops lavendar essential oil
Using a funnel, pour oils into the glass bottle.
Add essential oil.
Shake before each use.
Olive oil contains three major antioxidants when topically applied, which help protect the skin from premature skin aging. Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is rich in many proteins. These proteins keep skin healthy and rejuvenated, both internally and externally.
Lavender Essential Oil: Soothes skin irritations and eases feelings of tension.
Not all essential oil is created equal. Read here why I choose to use doTerra oils.
I use this shower oil for my dry spots, as well as an all-over after-shower body oil. I tend to get dry patches on my hips, elbows, and calves so I use this when getting out of the shower and I can always tell when I forget to use it. Have you ever made your own personal products?

I just had one Q about the oils – Did you use fractionated coconut & almond oil? Thanks.

Numnee, For this recipe I do not use fractionated oils. Thanks for inquiring. The only time I use a fractionated oil is if I am needing to dilute the oil for direct application.
