This moisturizing body oil spray recipe is easy to make with cyclomethicone, dry carrier oils, and a fragrance.  It moisturizes the skin and leaves a light scent to act as a perfume body spray.


Since winter is coming, I wanted to make more of my DIY dry oil perfume spray recipe.  This recipe is very similar to another perfume recipe that I posted a while back, but it has one important new ingredient.  Oil.


This is a dry body oil spray recipe that works as a perfume and a moisturizing body oil spray recipe.







I used an oil to moisturize my skin for the winter.  I switch between recipes in the summer and winter because this recipe is more moisturizing.


I use it as a perfume, but I especially like to use it after shaving.  This also make a great perfume for your hair.  Since it doesn't have alcohol, it won't dry out your hair or skin.


This dry oil perfume spray recipe isn't just for winter.  It's excellent for summer to add moisture to your skin.


Moisturizing Body Oil Spray Recipe


If you've never made a DIY bath and beauty recipe, this one is a great one to start with because it's so easy.  I didn't even measure my ingredients!  I just eyeballed them


You will need cyclomethicone for your dry body oil spray recipe.  It's what makes it dry and not too oily for your skin.


You can use the cyclomethicone straight on your skin, so you can be a little off on your ratio.  If you want less oil, feel free to use 1/4 oil instead of 1/2 like I did.  


In the tutorial video below, I talk a little about the carrier oils.  I prefer using a dry oil for this recipe because I want my skin moisturized but not oily after I use a moisturizing body oil spray recipe.

Cyclomethicone


Cyclomethicone isn't a common ingredient in DIY beauty recipes, but it's perfect for perfume and body sprays and this dry body oil spray recipe.  


It's alcohol free and clear and odorless, so it's perfectly suited to a spray or even as an additive for lotions.  It leaves the skin feeling moisturized without leaving the skin oily or sticky feeling.



Cyclomethicone spreads across the skin without penetrating the skin or clogging pores due to its molecule size.  Because it doesn't enter the skin, it leave a smooth and soft feeling on top of the skin.


This is why it's called a dry oil, even though it's not an oil at all.  It's perfect for making a dry body oil spray recipe.


Although it's not a carrier oil, it does "carry" the other ingredient on the skin.  Even though clyclomethicone doesn't enter the skin, it doesn't stop other ingredients from entering the skin



It's safe for the skin and hair.  You'll probably see it used in lotion, conditioner, and in perfumes.


Carrier Oils


You'll want to use a dry oil in this moisturizing body oil spray recipe.  These are oils that have small molecule, so they soak into the skin quickly.  They don't leave you feeling greasy or oily.




Great oils to use are:




If you use a heavier oil like avocado oil, just use your hands to work the spray into your skin and let it dry for a few moment before you get dressed. 


Heavier oils are great for this moisturizing body oil spray recipe, but they can be too heavy for touch ups during the day.  It's personal preference and how you want to use it.

Moisturizing Body Oil Spray Recipe Fragrance


You can use a fragrance oil or essential oil in this dry body oil spray recipe  I used Pear from Crafty Bubbles to make mine.  


I also make this with Pink Sugar Type fragrance oil because it's my favorite scent ever.  It's like cotton candy with a hint of musk.





You can also use essential oils because they will mix with the carrier oils and be dispersed throughout this DIY dry oil perfume spray recipe. 


You use a single essential oil or create your own blend for your moisturizing body oil spray recipe.  Here are some great blends to inspire you.


Or try one of these essential oil blends that smell like candy for your dry body oil spray recipe.
