Vanilla Clove Body Oil Spray {aka Man Magnet Spray}

Vanilla Clove Body Oil Spray

Ladies, this one is perfect for Valentine’s Day! It’s hard to feel romantic when it’s freezing outside – I can’t even think about a sexy red dress when all I want to do is layer on clothes and huddle by a cozy fire. But what I can do is take care of my skin and smell great at the same time.

Winter is so hard on your skin and an oil based lotion helps beat the dry heat. I’ve been slathering myself in coconut oil but this body oil spray recipe I found in Redbook smells so amazing I’m calling it a man magnet spray! :)

Vanilla Clove Body Oil Spray

Body Oil Spray Ingredients

What is it about this body oil that makes it a man magnet? Well, the only dude in my life likes it. Oh, and the real experts say vanilla stirs up feelings of intimacy. And the oil makes your skin feel so smooth and silky.

Ready to make your own Man Magnet Spray? You will need:

Body Oil Recipe

Combine all of the ingredients – minus the cloves – and pour into a small spray bottle. If you’re not smelling enough vanilla, go ahead and add a 1/2 teaspoon more.

The smell of cloves can easily over power everything else so I recommend adding it last – one drop at a time. Shake together and you’re done.

Oil Body Spray

Spray the body oil onto your skin and rub it in. You can use it all over – legs, arms, whatever. It makes a great perfume so, again, be careful not to overdo it with the cloves. Go get ‘em ladies!

    You mix it with Vanilla extract, stupid question but we cook with that so did you mean vanilla fragrance or essential OR did you mean the vanilla you can flavour icing and cakes with? I so am going to make this please let me know about the extract please asap
    Many thanks

    • gerbermom says

      Yes, I used the same stuff you cook with! I’m sure you could use essential oil if you have it but I just used what I had on hand. Good luck! :)

    I love this. I may have to make some, but leave out the cloves. Just make a Vanilla. I love it. Maybe put a bit of Lavender in it. My favorite scent is cucumber-Melon. I make soap with this scent, and my Son-in-law and husband both love it.

    • gerbermom says

      Lavender would be great! How do scent the soap with cucumber/melon? Do you just use the veggie/fruit or some kind of extract? Would love to know b/c that sounds amazing!

      • Deborah Jennings says

        I use the Cucumber-Melon FO and scent the soap with it. You can “juice” a cucumber and put that in there, but I use the FO. We all love the smell.

    Also makes a great massage oil I buy almond oil by the quart and add extracts and oils. SO good for the skin! I feel so silky and indulged after!

    I made this and had it on when I went to the grocery store, as we were leaving man came over to me and asked if he could take my cart and keep my quarter! Does that count?
    Anyway, it smells wonderful. Thanks!
