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.

This gown and hat set and matching lovey is from @themotherbabybond is literally the softest piece of clothing Beau has. The best part is it has magnetic closures; talk about easy 3am diaper changes! Their shop has sooo many options and prints! Go support the sweetest mother/daughter duo 💕
  • While I love precious posed photos, these are the kinds of photos I cherish the most. The ones that capture us just being us. Real life...Teagan wanted nothing to do with pictures that day and of course, Beau, the milk monster wanted to eat but all of that ended up resulting in this moment. I’m so grateful for @celticgrayphotography always being kind and patient with us and capturing the best of us!
  • Oh Beau, you’ve completely stolen our hearts 💙 #gerberphotosearch2018 #beaumontgomeryg
  • One of Teagan’s school pictures. I cannot take this. Yes, I’m crying 😭 she’s so beautiful and growing up right before my very eyes! 😍
  • Currently in the newborn haze. I won’t lie, a lot of days I miss lunch or find myself right here eating lunch on the floor keeping a newborn content while trying to entertain a toddler. Luckily, @ReadyPacFoods makes it super easy for me to eat while on the go and also get a healthy option in with these Bistro Single-Serve Salads. #WePackedYouLunch #sponsored
  • Sometimes I just stare at him and want to cry because I know this season of life is going to go so fast. Stay little my sweet Beau 💙 #beaumontgomeryg
  • I promise she really does love him! Lots of adjustments happening over here but we are all surviving one meltdown at a time 💕💙 #gaskellrascals
  • One week as a family of 4 and nothing has ever felt so right ☺️ #gaskellrascals 📷: @celticgrayphotography
