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.

  • As most of you know, we’ve been ditching and switching most of the toxic products in our home over the past year and replacing them with better plant based products. The process felt overwhelming to start with but each month we tossed one thing and it made it feel so much more attainable. .
When people ask me where to start, I almost always say ditch the toxic laundry detergent and dryer sheets. This affects the entire family. Switching that means no more wearing clothes and rolling in sheets that are filled with chemicals 24/7. These chemicals are transferred onto your skin and your children’s skin and absorbed into your body throughout the entire day 😖
.
Scan your products with the @thinkdirty app and see how they rate. Most of them will have chemicals that have been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, endocrine disruption, cancer and so much more. That’s scary enough for me to just avoid all together. #knowbetterdobetter #gimmealltheplants
  • People make fun of Valentine’s Day but I love it. We don’t exchange gifts but I love the reminder to love and acknowledge the one you are with. Happy Valentine’s Day my love! Celebrating it with a throwback to the days when phone pictures were terrible quality, we were much younger, thinner, tanner, less wrinkles and spent our money traveling the world. I love you so much and this beautiful life we’ve built together 🖤
  • Some days I honestly feel like I’m drowning in all the things. I need to say this to myself everyday. And repeat it all day long. 🖤
  • Because we are still in denial over the @saints not being in the Super Bowl today! We will get em next year 🏈🖤
  • I love the month of love 💗Diffusing all my favorite reds, pinks and purples all month long! This month my mantra is “Hustle and Heart will set you apart” because I feel some big things in the works 💜
