Essential Oils

Homemade Face Moisturizer

I have been having so much fun finding new ways to incorporate essential oils into my daily life. I also love DIY projects so I feel like I am just getting started on this journey.

I have pretty sensitive skin and have always had hormonal acne right around my chin area. My dermatologist said it likely wouldn’t change until I had a baby. Well here I am a year and a half postpartum and same issue. This moisturizer really does help. It hasn’t cleared the issues completely but it does make them clear up faster and I’ll take any help I can get.

This is a very simple recipe and takes about 5 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Organic Raw Shea Butter
  • 1/2 cup Organic Unfiltered Coconut Oil
  • 15 drops Frankincense
  • 10 Drops Lavender
  • 4 oz. glass jar

Instructions:

  • Whip the shea butter and coconut oil in a mixer until smooth. (I used my KitchenAid but you can use a hand mixer)
  • Add oils and mix until combined
  • Transfer to glass jar
  • Enjoy that smooth skin! πŸ™‚

It is so easy to slowly cut the toxic products out of your home. If you haven’t already, get the “Think Dirty” app and scan those products you use in your home daily. I think you will be surprised just how toxic things really are for you.
