neroli - .5ml

Skincare II - 100ml super skincare blend
rose otto - 1ml
helichrysum - 1ml

This may be obvious, but.... place the essential oils in the 100ml containers first, then fill with the carrier oils.

Thank you!
I'm so glad you re-posted this formula, I was looking for it.
Here's my question about carrier oils -
I also have on hand Pomegranate, Tamanu and Evening Primrose as well as the Jojoba and Coconut.
Would it be overkill to add a few of the others?
Thanks so much.

Hi Available Light, and thanks for the kind words. In my experience, it would be fine to add the carrier oils you have on hand to the blend. I like the simplicity of jojoba + virgin coconut -- it has a delightful creamy texture, and we use it mostly on our faces.

The Ananda super skin care base is Argan Nut, virgin Coconut, Evening Primrose, Rosehip Seed and Tamanu, which seems like more than enough for the second blend.

But, as always, you are the best judge of what works for you!

Post Argan Oil For Natural Skin
You may have heard that organic argan oil for skin care is a wonderful concoction that works wonders. This is not a mere speculation as the oil has proven its worth for over thirty centuries past. The beauty oil is native to Morocco where its source, the argan tree, is exclusively found. The Moroccan people enjoyed the potency of this oil for centuries not only on their skin but also for their entire body. Argan oil gives the skin a radiant look so people who have used it often call it the "Liquid Gold".
