Whipping up some magical facial moisturizer 😍 You won’t catch me spending big bucks on skincare when I can make the real deal for myself! Why do I call it magical? Because this base of coconut oil, jojoba oil and rosehip seed oil has been incredible for my balancing my oily skin 💥
Many of you have asked for the recipe for this magical moisturizer, so here it is. Please note a couple things:
1. you should choose your base oils based on your skin type. I have posted a graphic about base oils and skin type at the bottom of this post.
2. there are many many essential oils that are great for the skin. I chose these ones based on my needs, but you aren’t limited to these. Except to say — ALWAYS use Frankincense. Always. It’s magic for healthy, youthful skin.
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp jojoba oil
1 tsp rosehip seed oil
Whip these oils together (I just used a fork)
Add these essential oils:
8 drops Frankincense
6 drops Lavender
6 drops Geranium
2 drops Myrrh
2 drops Rose
Mix them all together and put in a jar.
You may find that this moisturizer takes a little longer to absorb into your skin than what you are using now, but that’s a good thing. It gives you time to really massage it in, and massaging your skin increases blood and oxygen flow, which in the long term increases collagen production — which gives you a youthful glow.
