Do you know what I love most about DIY products? I love that I know exactly what is going into the product that I am putting on my face, in my body or using in my house. There are SOOOO many beauty products on the market that can help you deal with troubled skin, oily skin, dry skin, acne, T-zone issues and on and on. So many of those products are created in a lab with concoctions that we can’t even begin to understand what they are. We trust that what is made is going to be good for us and help us solve an issue.
I made Night Cream yesterday and not only was it really fun to play the mad scientist role, it was great knowing everything I am going to be putting on my face. It smells amazing and has a great consistency. I was excited for bedtime just so that I could use it.
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp shea butter
10 drops lemon essential oil
15 drops Frankincense essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
glass bottles with lids for storing cream
- Combine all ingredients in metal mixing bowl.
- Use a hand mixer to mix all the ingredients thoroughly. The texture should be smooth and whipped. It will seem like a very thin icing. It will take 5-10 minutes for the desired consistency.
- Use a spatula to put the mixture in the glass jars for storage.
- At night, put a small amount on your face. Go to sleep and wake up beautiful.
That’s it. Easy peasy. And, the best part is knowing everything that you are putting on your face. There are no crazy chemicals. There are no ingredients you can’t pronounce. Sure, you might not be able to spell Frankincense if asked to during a Spelling Bee, but you do know what it is.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
