Cyclomethicone can be
used in a variety of ways. This clear liquid is a silicone with absolutely no
odor, unlike alcohol based body sprays! It mixes with FO’s or EO’s beautifully
with no clouding or separation! It has a silky smooth feel and is dry, not
greasy. It is commonly used in personal care products such as lotions, creams,
deodorants, conditioners, make-up, hair sprays, etc. Can safely be used in PET
or HDPE plastic bottles. PVC is not recommended. Small bottles with fine mist
sprayers are recommended (this product goes a long way and a small bottle will
last awhile!). This stuff is truly amazing, once you try it you’ll be hooked!
|Instructions for use:*Caution: Some fragrance oils can cause clouding in this base. Always make a small test batch to determine which fragrances work well in each formula. Blending oils that do not like to bind to cyclomethicone in advance with a light oil like Rice Bran Oil then adding the cyclomethicone has worked to incorporate the two without further issues with regards to separation.
Dry Oil Body
Mix in FO or EO at any dilution depending on desired strength and recommended
usage levels of FO or EO. Common dilution rates are 1 part FO/6 parts cyclo
up to 1 part FO/3 parts cyclo.
Mix in concentrations up to 50/50 with your favorite vegetable or botanical
oil (I use soybean oil) and add FO or EO to desired strength. Spray on the
skin after you shower while skin is still wet, then towel dry. Leaves your
skin feeling so silky smooth yet not greasy at all! (Similar to Neutrogena
Rain Bath Dry Oil Spray).
Spray & Room Spray:
Mix the same way you do for a body spray! Won’t leave linens wet and doesn’t
stain! (test on white linen to make sure the FO doesn’t stain tho!)
Use on hair as a detangler & defrizzing agent (spray on wet hair). Spray on
dry hair as a shine serum! Or add to hair conditioners to impart more “slip”
& detangling properties!
Add to lotions, creams, body butters and lotion bars to give a silky feeling
(add up to 1% to pre-made lotion base, or 5% or more to lotion made from
Bath Oils, Salts
Add to bath oils or scrubs for a silky less greasy feel. Use in place of
glycerin in bath salts to impart a silky feel and give salts a nice sheen!
Just add your favorite blend of bug repellant EO’s such as Lemongrass,
Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Citronella, Cedarwood, Catnip, Tea Tree, Lavender,
etc. No nasty chemical smell like you get in commercial insect repellents!
