DIY Chamomile Body Oil in an upcycled jar

DIY chamomile body oil

  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 jar 1x


Making your own DIY chamomile body oil isn’t only easy, it’s also a lot more affordable than store-bought. You only need 4 ingredients!


  • vodka or other high proof alcohol for sterilizing
  • 20 g dried chamomile flowers (2/3 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 250 ml almond oil (1 cup and 2 teaspoons)
  • 1x 400 ml airtight glass jar (13.5 oz)


  1. Wipe your glass jar and any utensils that you are using with vodka to sterilize them.
  2. Place your chamomile flowers into your glass jar and add the vitamin E oil as well as the almond oil. Make sure the chamomile flowers are all covered with oil and you are leaving a bit of a rim (the mixture will expand as it infuses).
  3. Stir with the handle of a spoon (make sure to sterilize it before) to remove any air bubbles and ensure all buds are submerged in the oil.
  4. Close and store in a dark dry place, e.g. a cupboard. Make sure to gently shake your infused oil daily in the first week and then every once in a while and let it infuse for a total of 4-6 weeks. 
  5. After it has infused, strain out the chamomile with a cheesecloth or fine mesh sieve and store the oil in a fresh clean glass jar.


Check your DIY body oil before each use for any mold growth and give it a smell test to ensure it hasn’t gone rancid.
