Easy Skin care Recipes for Empowerment


In Part 2 of Using Your homemade skincare products for visualization, I cover how exactly to make a few of the easier homemade skincare items.

"Instructions for Making Skincare Products"

FYI: The essential oils referenced in the instructions below are all the ones mentioned in the first article Essential Oils in Skin care for Self-Empowerment.

Facial Toner.

Apple Cider Vinegar is a good balancer for all skin types.
Mix 1 part Apple Cider Vinegar with 1 part filtered water.
Choose your essential oils and consciously add them to your apple cider vinegar mix.
For 2 oz of toner, add 20 drops total of essential oil.

Mask.

Bentonite Clay is a great mask base for all skin types.
In a small wide mouth glass bowl (a condiment dish is perfect), pour a tablespoon of bentonite clay. Consciously add 10 total drops of essential oil (any combination depending on skincare and empowerment goals) and stir into clay. Add enough water to create a paste that you can easily spread over your face.

Moisturizer.

I'm a big proponent of using natural oils as moisturizers, even for oily skin types. The simplest moisturizer to make entails using a natural oil like almond oil, jojoba oil, or Camellia oil. Almond oil is a great absorbing oil and is balanced enough for all skin types. Jojoba oil absorbs very well into the skin because it is very close in composition to sebum, the skin's naturally occuring oil. Camellia oil is a great oil for the skin particularly helping to rejuvenate it.

Add 20 drops of essential oil to 2oz of any of the carrier oils.

If you are attached to your current cream moisturizer, you can still bump up its effectiveness and use if for visualization. Just add 20 drops of essential oil total per 2 oz of moisturizer and stir well.

******************
Using any of your products for visualization is an easy, fun activity. Now that each of them is primed with specialized scents and qualities, you can focus on that particular quality you want to grow. Have fun with it and of course enjoy!
