I have always loved making things, but making my own bath products is new to me! I asked my husband for a Young Living Essential Oils Starter Kit for Christmas and a friend of mine who sells Young Living products hooked me up! (or maybe I should say hooked my whole family up!) Not only did I get the starter kit, but my mom got me several items to go along with the kit! (like these cute little glass jars!)
I couldn't wait to try some of the oils! My friend gave me this recipe for Heavenly Face Cream. She says she's been using it for a while now and can see a remarkable difference her skin! So I whipped up a small batch. NOTE: This recipe will make enough to fill a 4oz glass jar. (Yes, it must be glass! The oils will seep into plastic and break down the chemicals)
I tried a little and was so impressed at how dewy and soft my face felt after just one application! 24hrs later and my face still feels like that! A word of advice....this stuff goes a long way! Just use a tiny tiny bit and if you need more, get a tiny bit more. If your face feels too oily afterwards, you've probably applied too much, just wipe away the excess with a towel. *I recommend applying just before bedtime so it has time to absorb into your skin.
Why It's So Awesome:
Frankincense Essential Oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin, making it ideal for acne-prone skin. It is also a natural toner, decreasing the appearance of pores and evening skin-tone. It is cytophylactic, which means that it helps protect existing cells and encourage new cell growth. For this reason, it helps reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of scars. It also helps soothe chapped, dry skin.
Lavender Essential Oil helps lighten the appearance of age spots and scars. It is helps regenerate skin cells so is great for mature skin, sun spots, and scarring. Another great oil for all skin types and needs.
How I made it:
10 drops of Lavender
10 drops of Frankincense
1/2 C. Shea Butter
1/4 C. Coconut Oil
I used my kitchenaid mixer and blended all the ingredients until it whipped and creamy. Easy! Then I spooned it into this cute little 2oz. jar (I cut my recipe in half).
I made a cute little label for the jar and simply used modge podge to attach it to the top of the jar. If you don't want to modge podge, you could just put a piece of shipping tape over it and trim the edges.
Here is the label if you'd like to use it to put on your own jar! I included a round and square version, just in case you preferred one over the other. To download the image, just right click on it and click "save as".
