Lavender and Lemon Daily Face Cleanser (suitable for all skin types)

Combine the following essential oils and carrier oil and store in a glass jar in the fridge for 1-2 weeks; use day and night, apply to face in a circular motion and wipe clean.

  • 6 tablespoons sweet almond oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons water
  • 4 drops lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil

Rose Anti-Aging Face Cleanser

Combine and store these essential oils & carrier oils in a dark glass jar; massage a small amount into face and rinse with warm water and wipe clean with a soft cloth. These are luxurious essential oils and a small amount will work well, so that it will last for awhile.

  • 7 tablespoons jojoba oil
  • 6 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 5 tablespoons sweet almond oil
  • 9 drops bergamot essential oil
  • 7 drops rose essential oil
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil

Clarifying Face or Body Scrub

Mix all ingredients in a glass or stainless steel bowl or cup; put mixture in your hands and apply directly to dry skin scrubbing gently in a circular motion. Rinse well and pat dry. Works best if you use before getting in the shower or washing your face.

  • ½ cup coconut oil (I like to whip this up with a mixer just so it gets some of those chunks of oil a little smoother)
  • 1 cup of fine sugar
  • 6 drops of Neroli, jasmine or roman chamomile essential oil

Nighttime Facial Moisturizer

Combine these essential oils and carrier oils and store in a dark bottle; put 10 drops in the palm of your hand and apply before bed. This is meant to be worn overnight and not for daytime use.

  • 4 teaspoons sweet almond oil
  • 30 drops lavender essential oil
  • 30 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 15 drops tea tree essential oil

Skin Brightener

Combine each of the ingredients in a 1oz glass bottle; turn the bottle slowly allowing the oils to mix well. Use 4 drops on damp, clean skin. This balances skin tone while improving hyperpigmentation.

  • 1oz sweet almond oil
  • 8 drops sandalwood essential oil
  • 4 drops lemon essential oil

Skin Toner

Mix all ingredients and place in a spray bottle, store in a cool dark place and spritz on clean skin twice a day. {I like to get my spray bottles at Walmart or Dollar Tree for $1 or less}

  • 1 tablespoon witch hazel
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 4 drops jojoba oil
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil

Lip Balms

You can make your own lip balm at home with a combination of coconut oil, beeswax, lavender and orange essential oils but personally, I find it easier to just buy them from Young Living (a company where we get our therapeutic grade, organic oils from). Young Living offers a few varieties of lip balm to choose from and a lip balm trio is available for members. Once you use essential oil lip balms, you’ll never go back to using the store kind. Essential oil lip balms leave behind hydrated, soft and supple lips and even accentuate the natural pigment of your lips.
