I found an awesome essential oils cleansing cream recipe.
A great book on my “natural remedies” bookshelf is “Earthy Bodies & Heavenly Hair” by Dina Falconi. It has all sorts of recipes for making your own facial creams, cleansing creams, soaps, hand lotions, shampoos, and more…using essential oils.
I decided to make some facial cream and cleansing cream using my lavender oil from Young Living essential oils. And it was really, really easy. And so far, everyone I’ve shared it with wants to know where they can get some. Of course, I tell ’em they can make it themselves if they just get some great essential oils (from me or become a distributor and get ’em discounted), the recipe book, and make some time in the kitchen to whip it together.
Here’s a video of how easy it is to put this recipe together and start enjoying the benefits of a facial cream and cleansing cream you make yourself. You’ll know every ingredient in it, (update: I’ve listed the ingredients below) and you’ll know you’re using the essential oils your skin will love…
7 ounces of your choice of oil depending on your skin type:
- olive oil for normal to dry skin
- coconut oil for normal to dry skin
- canola oil for normal skin
- grape seed oil for normal to oily skin
- jojoba for most skin types…especially for dry, damaged, mature
- almond oil for normal skin
10 ounces distilled water
1/2 ounce bees wax
1 teaspoon borax
25 drops of Young Living Essential lavender oil
