divine oil.

So here's the (almost) finished product of my Divine Oil. As said before, I just need to add the essential oils and it will be my very first oil mix!
The Antipodes Divine Face Oil Certified Organic Avocado Oil and Rosehip 30ml costs £18.99 at Feelunique. I just finished my Caudalíe Vinoperfect Serum (short review coming up!) and mixed it all in that bottle. The only problem is that it's a clear glass bottle, so I'll have to keep it somewhere dark. - I've looked for other pipette flasks but all that I found had a red rubber head, which dissolves in time.
The Antipodes Divine Oil base ingredients (click to read the properties of each oil*):
Persea gratissima (avocado oil)
Macadamia ternifolia (macadamia oil)
Buxus chinensis (jojoba oil)
Rosa canina (rosehip oil)
Canaga odorata (ylang ylang oil)
Amyris balsamifera (torchwood)
Santalum album (sandalwood oil)
Jasminum officinale (jasmine oil)
Citrus sinensis (orange oil)
I took the conclusion that the base oils are equally divided, so 1/4 of each and then a few drops of the essential oils. We'll see about it, there's nothing that says you have to stick to a recipe. I'm also thinking of adding either Tea Tree or Frankincense because of my blemish-prone skin, but I want to do it right the first time.
I will order the essential oils at iHerb 'cause it will come out cheaper there. The only problem is that I can't seem to find "Torchwood", or as it is also called "Amyris Oil", alone. So I'm thinking of leaving that one out. Sandalwood is pretty expensive and I read somewhere that it's price is rising about 25% per year. So I will buy that one diluted into jojoba oil, but I don't feel well by contributing to the high demand of it.
I will update further on the oil as I get all the ingredients. I've already tried it with the base oils alone and it really feels light but hydrating, non clogging and penetrating thanks to jojoba and macadamia that mimics our natural sebum and rosehip that is considered a dry oil. The only heaviness can be the avocado oil, which I'm hoping with its chlorofyll, vitamin A, D and E will help to repair my acne scars and fade them away.
I will probably purchase the original oil in the future just to compare if I did a good DIY job and I will try to figure out the price for a self-made one.
