The fall wind has been brutal.. cold, chapping and its been damp at time but not in a good way.. more of a its like I am living by the sea with a cold, hard damp wind..
Needless to say my skin has been taking a beating and I needed to step up my game and give it a much deeper drink of moisturizer.
So here is my quick and easy go to skin care recipe..
Are you ready???
Coconut oil and a few drops of EO..
So the trick is to start with the coconut oil in a solid state, I made enough to do my face, neck and hands for about a month.. I used 1/4th of a cup of my best coconut oil in solid state, I added in 3 drops of Pepperment EO and then you need your blender.
I am not sure you can do this by hand, but a hand turned blender or I guess if you really wanted you could blend and then whisk the heck out of it.. but I use my little hand held blender.. bet it till its about 1.5 to 2 times in volume..
That’s it.. beat till smooth, beat till fluffy, beat till it will hold tiny soft peaks, and then jar it up in a clean dry jar with a lid, store at room temp and a little of this goes a long way..
Now this is not a put it on and then go.. It needs time to soak in, it needs time to be gently rubbed in depending on how much you use, it will need between a few min to up to ten.. now I don’t mean that you need to do nothing during that time, just that it will be a bit wet, shiny and working its way in..
I find that beating it fluffy makes a big difference in how it goes on and how it soaks in.. its worth the tiny bit of time it takes to do it.. plus it spreads any eo that I want to use into it very evenly.
