Silky Skin Spray Recipe

Learn how to make a non-greasy skin spray that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.

In the past few years I’ve been working on getting rid of as many chemicals in my home as possible. My daughter has asthma and I know that cleaning chemicals are horrible for her, as well as for my family. There’s all kinds of crazy stuff in those cleaners! Making my own surface cleaner and carpet freshener have been such a huge help! Since I’m making them myself I know exactly what ingredients are going in there and they are much healthier for my family.

I started researching essential oils and how to use them in the past year and took a few DIY essential oil classes. One of the classes was focused on health and beauty and we learned how to make bath bombs and silky skin spray. These were so fun to make, even though my bath bombs turned out a little crumbly.

Making the silky skin spray was so easy and has very few ingredients. The ingredients in this spray mix together to do exactly what the name implies – makes your skin silky smooth! After using this spray, I noticed that while my skin certainly felt silkier, it did not feel greasy as I expected. That’s a plus for me because I don’t like products that make me feel greasy.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add glycerin and coconut oil to a 4 oz. glass spray bottle.
  2. Break open the vitamin E capsule and pour into bottle. (I found it easier to cut the very tip of the capsule with scissors.) 
  3. Fill the rest of your bottle up with distilled water, leaving enough space to shake before use.
  4. Spray on your skin and enjoy the silkiness!

Let me know if you make some for yourself! I would love to know what essential oil you used and how you like the silky skin spray!

  1. Michelle, what a cool idea! You could totally use something like lavender and peppermint to give it a cooling feeling. It looks like it would be a lot lighter than lotion but also take care of dry skin!

    1. Michelle

      Thank you! Peppermint and lavender would make a great combination! It is definitely a lot lighter than lotion and works great!

  2. What size spray bottle did you use ?

    1. Michelle

      I used a 4 ounce size bottle for this. πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks Michelle. I recently purchased of set of 3 Essentials Oils.

        1. Michelle

  3. I make essential oil sprays but haven’t tried this particular blend. This looks great!

    1. Michelle

      I love making my own sprays. πŸ™‚ I can make them smell the way I want and don’t have to worry about all the weird ingredients.

  4. How cool is this?! I may have to make a batch!

    And my bath bomb are always a wee bit crumbly too!

  5. Sounds like a good one!

    1. Michelle

      Thank you! I love it! πŸ™‚

    Great idea! I bookmarked the page. My grandson is twelve and really suffering with hives that come and go daily with no rhyme or reason as to why. He’s seeing an allergist this week. I’m wondering if it is some chemical he comes in contact with daily that no one has as of yet identified.

    1. Michelle

      Thank you! Oh no! I’m sorry to hear about your grandson. I hope they can figure out what’s going on. Let me know what happens!

      1. Timelesslady

        I will. I am hoping it is something obvious and easy to cure.

  7. Oh I love this! How cool, and who wouldn’t want silky skin?? One of my good friends loves making her own beauty conceptions and treatments.

    1. Michelle

      Thank you! I love that I can use different oils each time I make some so it’s always different. πŸ™‚

  8. What a great idea πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Š

  9. Wow..sounds great and so simple. I am going to pin this make it.

    1. Michelle

      Thank you! It’s very simple and one of my favorites. I love the way it makes my skin feel! πŸ™‚

  10. Thanks for the at home recipe! This sounds great! πŸ™‚

    1. Michelle

      You’re welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

  11. I think chemicals are making my breathing/asthma worse too, it’s only more recently that I’ve come to think more about what I use in that sense. This is amazing, I never would have thought of mixing these sorts of things together. I had to google fractionated coconut oil as I didn’t have a clue what that meant! This is brilliant, will bookmark this and give it a try as I like the idea of something more natural that can nourish skin & leave it silky smooth! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

      I hope you can get your asthma and breathing under control. It’s a scary feeling not to be able to breathe! I’m glad you found this useful! I hope you like it! πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading!

  12. Michelle, what a neat idea you have brought. Do you use this in the morning or at night? I would love to try this as I really force to use home made products. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    1. Michelle

      Thank you! I use it first thing in the morning, but you can use it any time of day. Sometimes I use it later on in the day just because I love it so much. πŸ™‚

  13. Michelle, this sounds absolutely amazing! I looove your wisdom on using natural ingredients and getting rid of as many chemicals as possible. The same process was started here a couple years ago & I haven’t looked back!

    The ingredients in your spray are perfect. Coconut oil & Vit E together alone are a wonderful combo πŸ™‚

    Which essential oils are your favorite? Lavender seems to be my go-to for so many things. It’s heavenly…

    Blessings to you & your family! <3

    (P.S. I'm so sorry for being behind on reading & commenting. As I know you can relate, life has been absolutely nuts for a little while… trying to get back in the swing of things…)

    1. Michelle

      Thank you!! Being chemical free has really helped keep us healthier. I think my favorite oils are lemon and peppermint. It really depends on what I’m using them for. Lavender is another favorite for sure!!
