Summer is coming and that means one thing: less clothes! If you are planning on wearing shorts, skirts and sundresses you are going to want to make sure that your legs are ready for the big reveal. If your legs are like mine, they have been hiding underneath pants, tights and sweats all winter long. It is time that they saw a little sun and got a little love.
I made a batch of Sexy Legs Cream so that I know my legs are looking good. It is so easy to make and it is toxin free! I don’t have to worry about slathering on some mix of toxins into my skin. You can pronounce everything that goes into the mixture. It also has a great light consistency and smells pretty darn good!
Here’s the recipe:
SEXY LEGS CREAM
3/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup Shae butter
1 tsp Witch Hazel (no alcohol – you don’t want it drying out your skin)
1/2 tsp Vitamin E Oil
8 drops Juniper Berry
8 drops Rosemary
8 drops Frankincense
8 drops Lavender
8 drops Grapefruit
8 drops Cedarwood
8 drops Carrot Seed Oil
Glass jar with lid
Put all of the ingredients in a glass or metal mixing bowl and whip for about 10 minutes with a mixer. The mixture will get light and airy – similar to whipped cream. You want the mixture to be thin so that it is easy to apply to your skin.
Once the mixture is ready, put it into a glass jar with a sealing lid. You don’t want to put it in plastic because the Grapefruit oil is a citrus oil and toxins from plastic can leech out of plastic when using a citrus oil. You are going to the effort of making a non-toxic leg cream. You don’t want to be putting plastic chemicals into your skin.
Apply the cream to your legs and feel the smoothness and smell the fresh scent. This stuff is amazing!
It can (of course) be used all year long. I just figured I’d let you in on this little secret while you are getting ready for summer.
