Get rid of your expensive and toxic facial creams and make your own!
Get rid of your expensive anti-aging creams – most of them, even the most expensive brands, contain toxic and cancerogenic ingredients!
You can make your own anti-aging cream that is highly nourishing and has some outstanding anti-rid properties.
You can’t use lack of time as an excuse as you really need only 5 minutes which is what it takes to mix the ingredients together 🙂
You will need: Coconut oil, vitamin E, essential oils of Rosewood or Rosa damascena, Citron, Lavender, Rosemary essential oils. Below each ingredient in the recipe below I enclose the links to the products that I use. And if you prefer to buy it, here is the link Belle Comme Une Rose
- Please ensure that you are not allergic to the essential oil of your choice. To prevent any unexpected allergic reactions, please perform a skin patch test.
- If you intend to use the cream during the day, avoid the citrus oils as they can leave marks on your skin when exposed to the direct sunlight.
Mix in a small glass or ceramic recipient
- 2 tablespoons (30-35ml) of Coconut Oil
- 1 capsule of vitamin E (pierce it and squeeze in)
- 10-12 drops of different organic pure essential oils depending on your preference. I use a combination of Rosewood Oil (or Rosa damascena essential oil if you can afford it), Citron essential oil (all known for their anti-rid properties), Lavender and Rosemary. If your skin is prone to acne, you may want to add couple of drops of tea tree essential oil because of its unique disinfecting and soothing properties.
- Mix everything well with a wooden spoon. Transfer it in a small glass jar with a lid.
- Before applying to the face take a small quantity (really small!) of the cream, put it on your palm and dilute with few drops of tonic or hydrolate or plain water – I use Rosa damascena hydrolate. Your skin type should dictate how much tonic you’d need, obviously more tonic if your skin type is mixed or oily.
The cream will keep fresh up to a year, just make sure you don’t touch it with wet fingers. It is not necessary to put it in the fridge, just keep it in a dry area, temperature below 25. If it is too warm it will start to melt so in that case you may want to store it in the fridge.
