I am horrified by the number of chemicals in shop bought skincare products. Since discovering lots of amazing recipes on Pinterest, I have developed my own moisturiser, using a blend of various carrier and essential oils. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils, as essential oils are too concentrated to use directly on the skin.
My favourite oils for the body moisturiser are Shea butter, Coconut oil, Almond oil, Avacado oil, Frankincense and Lavender (Amazing for the skin!) I do not recommend this moisturiser for your face. Coconut oil has a high comedogenic rating,which refers to the oil’s ability to clog pores.
I also make the following blends to add to the carrier oils:
- Patchouli and Grapefruit (Great for achy muscles)
- Lavender and Helichrysum ( The benefits are numerous)
- Peppermint and Eucalyptus ( A must when you have a cold)
- Custom made blend made to order
