Did you know that in some parts of the country, avocado is known as the “fruit of youth”? Knowing this, you might want to check out these top DIY beauty treatments using avocado oil and find you something to make at home.
DIY Beauty Treatments using Avocado Oil
Avocado oil is rich in many vitamins, and healthy fats make it an essential part of having healthy skin. It’s my choice to make homemade beauty treatments. If you don’t have the money to go to a spa, or you don’t want to buy products with chemicals added, your best bet is to make them yourself as I do.
I’m pretty sure most of you already know the benefits of using avocado oil and probably already cook with it, but did you know this delicate oil can bring incredible benefits to your skin; such as better hydration, softening of the skin, and even bring a glow to your face?
Top DIY Beauty Treatments using Avocado Oil
Lavender Salt Body Scrub
This body scrub took me all of 5 mins to put together.
- 1/2 cup 100% dead sea salt
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- ten drops of 100% pure lavender essential oil
Mix it all in an 8oz glass container with a lid. Garnish with lavender buds. Dress it up and give it as a gift like I did or use it yourself. A smaller glass container is suitable.
Split Ends Using Avocado Oil
Before washing your hair, massage about 1/2 tsp of avocado oil in and around your split ends. Do this weekly if needed.

- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mixed all together in an 8oz glass container with a lid. Garnish with mini roses. (see top photo for finished product).
For a hot oil treatment, I found this info to be pretty awesome and I wanted to give them all the credit – Avocado Hot Oil Treatment
Cinnamon & Clove Foot Mask
This treatment is one I had to experiment with until I got it perfect. I found a similar recipe online but tweaked it a bit to my satisfaction. I must say, it’s awesome now.
- 1 tbsp glycerin
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 4 tbsp bentonite clay (Whole Foods)
- 2 tbsp Epsom salt
- 1 drop clove essential oil
- 1 drop cinnamon essential oil
- One tbsp warm water
Mix altogether saving the essential oils for last. Blend until the mixture turns to a paste. If too crumbly add more warm water a little at a time.
Apply the mask to your feet and leave on for 10 mins. I read where it’s best to put your feet in plastic bags and wrap a towel around them. This will help keep moisture in. Then, drown your feet with some soothing lotion.
This should make enough for one application.
All you need is avocado oil and vitamin E oil. Mix together and rub on your cuticles. I do this at night in my bed, and while I’m at it, I rub some on my feet too, especially my heels. It’s amazing how your hands and feet will feel and look in a week.
