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! 🙂

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.

  • Saturday Bumpday! 🤰🏼 17 weeks today! I posted on my blog yesterday all about finding out we were pregnant, a little about my NIPT with @maternit21plus , and our gender reveal video and more pictures!! The link is in my bio 💙
  • This little handsome guy turned T W O ✌🏼 yesterday and we get to celebrate him this weekend! It’s safe to say he’s really got the whole stud number down in his 2 short years. I feel so grateful to have friends with kids the same age and I love getting to watch them grow together! Happy Birthday sweet Camden! 🎉💙 #ittakesavillage
  • S I X T E E N  W E E K S today! Time seems to be flying by with this little boy! 💙 Cary and I each have two boy names we love, sadly they aren’t the same ones. We agreed on our little gal, Teagan, so quickly so please HELP and comment below and leave your suggestions on baby boy names! 💙
  • They haven’t yet mastered how to show each other affection! Teagan’s like “don’t touch me, boy!” And Cam’s like “get off my fire truck 🚒 “ I swear watching these two grow up together has been one of the highlights for me 😍
  • I’m afraid to say it but I feel like I might be turning a page slowly with this Hyperemesis. While that part of pregnancy has completely sucked, taken the joy out of my days, and made being a good mom to Teagan really difficult, there is one thing that has made this pregnancy so much easier and that’s @maternit21plus 💙 their non invasive prenatal test has taken some stress out of my days knowing my sweet little boy is healthy and I don’t have to worry about any surprises in his genetic health come September. That is getting me through each hard day of this pregnancy. We can’t wait to meet you little guy 💙💙 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • I’m 15 weeks pregnant today. I don’t even know how that’s possible! People aren’t lying when they said time goes by so quickly the second pregnancy. Feeling so grateful to be growing this little guy and chasing my sweet girl around🤰🏼

  • I don’t know how I survived life or motherhood before I started using oils. I turn to these products for my energy boost, to give me a good nights sleep, for a little extra confidence, to tame toddler tantrums, to support a healthy pregnancy and so much more. I was so skeptical but I jumped in with both feet and we’ve never looked back 🌿
  • Those moments when you really hope your child’s sass will help them lead a company and not a prison gang 🤦🏼‍♀️
