Twinkle Apothecary


$ 36.00
DESIGN. IT. YOURSELF.
Because who knows your own skin better than you, really? If you've ever wanted to experiment with creating just the right formula to treat your skin or hair's special needs but haven't had the time, (or you know, the money to invest in all of the raw materials...) allow us to do the work for you! Simply tell us what you want, and we will mix, bottle, and ship your custom oil blend to you within 7-10 business days! 
So easy, so... twinkly! 
  • Step 1: choose a carrier oil (you can choose up to three) 
  • Step 2: choose up to three essential oils 
  • Choose your oils in the order that you would like them mixed - Option 1 will be the base/most dominant ingredient, option 2 will be slightly less concentrated, and option 3 will be the lightest ingredient. Not sure about what's best? Just leave us a note with your order regarding how you intend to use the serum (is it for your coarse, curly hair? Sensitive, acne prone skin? etc.,) and we will use our expertise to craft your blend appropriately!
  • If you would like equal amounts of each ingredient, simply check the box for that option! 
  • Step 3: choose whether or not you would like to add non-GMO mixed tocopherol oil (AKA Vitamin E!) to your serum to extend the shelf life. (Note that this is strongly suggested when using rose hip oil, as it has a maximum shelf life of 6 months without added tocopherol.) 
  • Step 4: wait 7-10 days for your serum to be delivered! 
  • Step 5: understand that all sales are final (as always, given the nature of our bodycare products) and agree that you will not hold us accountable if the product that you design does not work the way you thought it would! DIY at your own risk!
