After trying this recipe, there will be no need to purchase toxin-filled, store-bought moisturizer again. This recipe also doubles as a make-up remover in addition to many skin supporting needs. Each application will leave your skin feeling radiantly amazing. When you have made it to your last cotton round, you will notice that some of the liquid mixture is leftover. At this point, add additional cotton rounds to the jar. So this 30-day supply, turned into a 40-45 day supply.
Let’s get started…
2 ounces fractionated coconut oil
10 drops Lavender
10 drops Frankincense
1 ounce witch hazel
1 ounce distilled water
Mix all ingredients listed in the order above. Screw the lid on and shake twice. Remove lid and add 30 cotton rounds a few at a time in the mixture.
When applying, wash face, take out one cotton round, fold in half twice and give a gentle squeeze releasing the mixture back into container. (Not following this step, it will result in excess oil the face). Apply as needed and discard in a trash can.
- Fractionated – Absorbs well; leaves skin feeling silky and moisturized; non-greasy
- Solid – Leaves a moisturizing, oily feeling layer on top of the skin
Frankincense is commonly known to promote a beautiful complexion, smooth blemishes and promote healthy skin. A little history for you… Frankincense is popularly known for the gift that was brought to Jesus Christ at his birth. During that time it was “used to treat every conceivable ill known to man. Because of that, it was valued more than gold to most. Only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. I love the history behind oils.
Lavender is so calming and relaxing. Lavender promotes improved concentration and helps keep you focused. A very popular fragrance, enjoyed in a wide range of beauty products as well as home cleaning products. Young Living grows beautiful fields of Lavender that’s flowering tops are steam distilled and produced to us in 15mL amber bottles of oily goodness. Young Living also features Lavender in the Premium Starter Kit.
Witch hazel is produced from the leaves and bark of the witch-hazel shrub also called Winterbloom. It cleanses and conditions skin without drying it out.
