This past weekend I Ied a fun, if chaotic, workshop where we made five really great skin-care items.
I did a good bit of research and testing before the workshop. Many of the recipes I found on-line (from trusted sources) or in books were either just not exactly what I was looking for, too complicated or I felt could be ramped-up just a little. What I eventually ended up with -- all five skin care items -- are products I'd stand up against any $100+ department-store brand. Mine are chock-full of protective ingredients. Each ingredient serves a crucial purpose to protect and hydrate skin.
I really love the products we made and use them daily.
What great gifts these would make (Mother's Day ... anyone?)!
Here's some general tips to keep in mind as you make your own skin care:
Note that the recipes I'll share are not aromatherapy, per se. I've chosen ingredients because they are skin-care workhorses that are enhancing to health, protective, sun-screening, and hydrating. These skin care items will smell okay but are not blow-you-away-wow-this-smells-amazing-! products. A bonus: when you use my favorite brand of essential oils in your skin care, you may find you experience other therapeutic benefits besides beautiful, glowing skin!
This recipe is totally customizable. The only non-optional ingredient is beeswax. If you want a lighter cream, use more aloe and less of the butters/oils. If you want more/less/different essential oils -- be free! Have fun!
I'll share the five recipes in five blog posts. Here's the first -- the BEST eye cream you'll ever use.
Best eye cream
Once well blended, transfer into jars (1/2 or 1 ounce).
Use every morning and night around the eyes.
