Moisturizing Face Lotion

Many face lotions contain mystery ingredients that are hard to pronounce and even harder to connect to specific benefits. When you make your own face lotion, you’ll understand exactly what each ingredient does to keep your skin healthy.

This DIY recipe can be customized with the essential oil of your choice. Soothe with lavender or invigorate with grapefruit and orange.  

  • Shea Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil (or Vitamin E Oil)
  • Beeswax Pellets
  • Essential Oils

Face Masks

This face mask couldn’t be easier! It requires only two ingredients – and you likely have both in your kitchen right now. Combine avocado and honey for a moisturizing DIY face mask that is completely natural. 

Apply and let sit for 15 minutes to soothe inflammation.

  • Avocado
  • Honey
