Essential Oil Beauty Hacks – Face Cream

Essential Oil Beauty Hacks – Face Cream

I finally ran out of my last batch of face cream and had to make another jar. Luckily, I have figured out how to make one jar at a time instead of 4! (Although I should probably make more for some last minute Christmas Gifts!). I  went to my Essential Oils: Integrative Medical Guide to see what it suggested for skin (issues, sagging, wrinkles, blemishes, all of it). Of course, I made another mash up of several recipes based on what I needed and what Young Living Oils I had on hand.

First things first, I filled my jar with coconut oil and set it in a bowl of hot water to melt it.

Then I added 5 of the oils that were listed in the IMG book for skin.

I used 10-11 (cause you know how one always sneaks out on you) drops of each of these oils” Patchouli, Tea Tree, Lavender, Frankincense and Ylang Ylang.

You can see how the oil is still separated. Cap the  jar, shake vigorously  and put into the freezer for a few minutes to set. Now don’t be like me and overfill the jar with coconut oil only to realize it when you put the cap on and it starts overflowing. I got a mid day spa treatment cause we weren’t letting anything go to waste!

So there’s my latest installment on face cream. I can honestly tell you my skin is better looking now than it was when I was paying $60 plus a jar for fancy  face cream. If we were to add the cost of this one jar up, it’s probably $6-$7 at the very  most. I have saved a ton this year alone at Sephora! So when someone tells you that oils are expensive, tell them all the things you can make from one jar and how you can choose to spend here and be healthier!
