Add the nourishing Tamanu oil until the bottle is almost full and then add only up to ten drops of your Palmarosa oil because this will give you the smell and benefit without overdoing it.
You can then apply it to the skin after cleansing. The mixture should be good when kept out of sunlight for 8 to 12 months.
