Creating Facial Moisturiser with Essential Oils

I recently fell in love with essential oils and I forever playing with different blends. Essential Oils are so multitasking, I use them in many different ways. Like I said in one of my recent posts, I am moving towards the vegetarian/vegan way of life with my diet and I also want to ensure all the products are use are natural and cruelty-free. Creating my own facial moisturiser with essential oils is one way of ensuring my skincare products include natural and cruelty-free ingredients. I have been playing around with various recipes and I am still perfecting the facial moisturiser.

I have noticed that many of the products that claim to be natural still include chemicals in them. This is one of the reasons why I am determined to keep on creating my own hair and skin products to be sure I am happy with all the ingredients. Another reason why I am now creating my own facial moisturizer is that I have noticed my skin breaks out a lot these days, and I am not sure why. Creating my own facial moisturiser will allow me to put in the right ingredients to help get rid of spots and stop the breakouts.

Creating Facial Moisturiser with Essential Oils

The base carrier I like using for my facial moisturiser is grapeseed oil. It is a great oil for normal skin and acne-prone skin too. I like to include a few drops of lavender essential oil into the grapeseed carrier oil to create a facial moisturiser. It works great every time. Lavender essential oil is a great oil for normal and acne-prone skin. It can also be used on other skin types. If you are looking at experimenting with essential oils, I recommend you try the lavender oil first. It is such an amazing oil and can be used in a variety of ways.

I like mixing in one carrier oil and one essential oil at a time to see which blends work well for my skin. Mixing in different oils at the same time will be tricky as you won’t know for sure which oil is doing what. Creating your own facial moisturiser with essential oils is easy if you have the time and if you have an interest in oils. I will be sharing pictures of my DIY homemade facial moisturiser in the next few days so keep reading.

The Rules for Beautiful Hair

A woman’s hair is her crown and it needs to be nurtured to look beautiful and healthy. I neglected my hair for many years so I know all about how damaging it is for your hair when the right hair products are not used or when you don’t spend time caring for it. Life happened and I now give my hair the attention and care it needs to thrive. I went naturally a few years ago and I only use natural hair products to nourish my hair. The rules for beautiful hair are similar to those for lovely skin. I will be writing a post showing off how long my hair is now and what my hair routine really looks like.  For now, here is a picture of my current hair length.

The Rules for Beautiful Hair
Keep your hair clean

I wash my hair every 2 weeks. Washing it every week will do my hair more damage than good. How often you should wash your hair depends on your hair type? Wash it as often as you need to keep it clean and healthy.

Stimulate your hair

It is very important to keep your hair stimulated. I do this by massaging hair oils into my scalp every day. This aids hair growth and keeps the scalp healthy.

Moisturise your hair

My hair and scalp are quite dry, so I moisturise twice a day. I have a spray bottle containing water and oils, and I use that twice a day alongside hair oils.

Keep your hair smelling good

The season of sweat is here and if you neglect your hair, it will end up smelling terrible. I love my hair smelling good. My essential oils do the job for me. I sprinkle a few jobs of my favourite essential oils into my spray bottle and that leaves my hair moisturised and smelling divine.

CONS
  1. The only con I have with this product is the packaging. The bottle isn’t as strong as it should be but that is not really an issue since there are no leaks with it.

I really like this Naissance Grapeseed Oil. It is a great oil addition. I use it a lot especially with other carrier oils and essential oils. It is a multitasking oil everyone needs. I know I will be using this oil for many years to come.
