Part of living simply for me is DIY rather than buy.
Our skin is our largest organ and what we put on it is just as important as what we put in our bodies. For the last several years, I have stopped using synthetic lotions and solely use oils to moisturize and what a difference it makes!
It's literally 2 ingredients...Almond Oil & Essential Oil -->
~ Find a fun bottle
~ Fill it with Sweet Almond Oil
~ Measure out 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil and voila!
- Put it on right when you get out of the shower for quicker absorption
- You can find Almond Oil at Wegmans or Green Hut in Spencerport, but any carrier oil will work (Olive Oil, Grapeseed, Jojoba, Apricot Kernal)
- Be conservative with the essential Oil -- it is potent! Keep smelling until you get the aroma you like
- Add sugar or salt to a slushy consistency and you've got yourself an exfoliating scrub :)
(If you use this in the shower, USE A PLASTIC CONTAINER)
