Simple Steps on How to Make Vitamin E Oil
Step 1: Measure ½ cup full of your Chosen Base Oil
Start by measuring four ounces of your base oil. You should be careful to choose a base oil that is organic and non-comedogenic so as not clog the pores or cause breakouts.
Step 2: Transfer the Oil into Dark Blue Bottle using a Funnel
Vitamin E oil can be degraded or oxidized If exposed to light. Use a dark blue or cobalt blue bottle to prevent exposure.
Transfer the oil to the bottle with caution. Try not to spill or expose the oil to light.
Step 3: Add 4 Caplets of Vitamin E (400 IU each)
While the funnel is still held in place, cut four caplets of vitamin E. Pour the vitamin E from the caplets into the bottle containing the base oil.
In case you have Vitamin E in liquid form, take 1 teaspoon and add to the base oil in the bottle.
Step 4: Add Your Preferred Essential Oil (Optional)
This is done to add some scent to the homemade Vitamin E oil. In addition, put 3-5 drops of the essential oil of your choice.
Some of the oils that will add a good scent are; rose, lilac, lemon, orange, or lavender.
Step 5: Do the Mixing
Close the cap of the bottle and turn it upside down and right-side-up repeatedly. This inversion procedure should be done severally until all the oils are properly mixed.
Step 6: Let it Cool
Store the Vitamin E oil in a refrigerator to keep it in a cool environment away from direct sunlight. Ensure the bottle cap is tight before putting it in the refrigerator.
When it’s time to use it, warm in your hands and shake well to ensure it’s in its liquid form.
Step 7: Test it with Your Skin
Take 1 -2 drops of the oil and pour on the wrist. Wait for 24 hours to see the reaction. If you experience any kind of itching, allergy, swelling, or redness, do not use the oil.
If the area looks normal and moisturized, you can use your homemade vitamin E oil on the skin, legs, or hair.
