The average commercial skin cream contains 20-30 ingredients including many that are potentially harmful to your health.
Make you own quickly and easily as follows using 5 ingredients:
Fill a 4 oz Ball Jar with (organic ingredients when possible)
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp Beeswax (less during cold weather months)
- Optional: add in Shea Butter and reduce olive oil in like amounts
Place jar in pot filled with water up 1/2 the height of the ball jar and gently heat at Medium flame until ingredients melted than stir with small wooden spoon.
Take out of pan of water and add
- 1/4 cup Lite Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Vitamin E
- 5-10 drops each of favorite essential oils (we like Chamomile & Lavender or Peppermint & Grapefruit)
- Optional: add in Jojoba and reduce olive oil in like amounts
Stir and cool to room temperature. Use on all parts of body/face saving $, space, and time buying multiple skin care products. First, test on small patch on arm to ensure no allergic reaction and note that it may not last as long as store bought brands that contain preservatives.
