All Natural Homemade Body Mists with Essential Oils

January 16 2019

Body mists hydrate and refresh the skin with a light, pleasant scent. By using a handful of natural ingredients, it is easy and affordable to create a personal body mist.

Those who are worried about toxic components in a store-bought body mist should consider going the homemade route. It only requires a few common ingredients that are known to benefit the skin.

What's Needed to Make a Body Spray?

Perhaps the most important ingredient is witch hazel, a popular anti-inflammatory substance. It has antioxidants that help protect skin from toxins. In a body mist, witch hazel keeps the essential oils from separating and acts as a preservative.

Many sprays also have vegetable glycerin. This ingredient helps make the scent of the body spray last longer. Furthermore, it moisturizes and tones the skin. Vegetable glycerin is gentle and non-toxic.
