I’ll admit it now. I’m one of those people who has spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on beauty products over time. I was constantly searching the shelves for the new product that was going to give me beautiful, glowing skin. More than likely, you have done the same. I have news for you, a lot of that stuff doesn’t work. That’s why we keep buying more and trying more. I finally ditched most of my beauty products and started using essentials oils daily. Here are a few ways to add essential oils to your beauty routine.
Add one drop of lavender and one drop of cedarwood to a new tube of mascara. You’re welcome. It smells wonderful and it supports healthy lashes.
Face mask boost
I’ve been a huge fan of the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask since one of my friends told me about it a few years ago. How could I not try it? The name just sucked me in. It’s 100% natural and works wonders on my skin. Bump up your mask by adding one drop (or one of all three) of the essential oils below.
Lavender – Soothes skin and has high antioxidant properties
Frankincense – Here is my fave wrinkle fighter again. This stuff has so many other benefits for your body. Look it up ASAP.
Purification – Add this one to your mask if you’re fighting a breakout.
Glow Night Serum
This is one of my favorite new additions to my beauty routine. I use this serum every night. It was easy to make and promotes healthy skin using only essential oils and a carrier oil. Purification, lemon, and tea tree help kill bacteria that could cause breakouts. Frankincense fights those pesky wrinkles. Lemon and tea tree help reduce the appearance of dark spots. I love that all of the oils serve multiple purposes that all help me look and feel better. *I only apply this at night because citrus oil will cause your skin to be sensitive to the sun.
10 Tea Tree
Combine oils in a 10 ml glass roller bottle. Top off with the carrier oil of your choice. I used grapeseed oil because of the light consistency and healing properties.
You can also try applying frankincense or manuka with a drop of copaiba to your skin neat (oil only).
Adding essential oils to your beauty routine is easy and cost effective. A little goes a long way. Essentials oils have so many scientific benefits, you should be using them all dang day! Just be sure you are using pure essential oils. I use Young Living because of their Seed to Seal promise. Want to learn more about why I use essentials oils and avoid toxins, check out this post.
