Alright, I rant about this so much I think it’s time to post. As I had said before, I got into oils to help me out with my anxiety (I was born high strung, not sure if it’s a gift or a curse). After weeks of researching I was like oh shit, I can use these to prevent wrinkles too? Hair growth? Eyelash growth? Uhm, yes. I live for a good home made face mask.
Before I share my current beauty hacks, please note that there are so many oils out there that promote the well being of your skin, hair, nails, etc. The following featured only the ones I have fallen in love wit thus far. I still have so many on my list of beauty oils. Check em out. Don’t have a kit? Sign me up baby!
Grab some empty wipes off of amazon, add one or two cap full pours + lemon eo + tea tree eo
20 citronella + 15 eucalptus + 15 lemongrass + 15 peppermint + witch hazel. Many recipes say to add water but I say no because water attracts flies. 🤷🏻♀️
Thieves dish soap, thieves cleaning solution, lemon eo, thieves eo, water. I put mine in a roller and I have a large spray of it in my laundry room. Gold baby. Solid gold.
Hair Growth/Thickening Spray or serum (up to you!)
Everyday Spray// 20 drops of lavender + 20 drops of cedarwood + 20 rosemary + 15 clary sage + 15 peppermint + 15 thyme + witch hazel + distilled water in a spray bottle. Spray in dry or wet hair!
Serum// + 3/4 castor oil + 1/4 jojoba oil. I can’t get over the benefits of this spray. What I do is apply as a hair mask before I get into the shower. Sometimes I will leave it on overnight. If you’re hair tends to get greasy fast maybe just a few hours while you clean your house!
Carrier oil + your fav face oils, mine are frank, lav, geranium, copiaba and ylang ylang + 16 oz of water. Mix to your own consistency! I place the masks in a bowl and add all ingredients, let sit for hours. Be your own judge here!
2 cups baking soda + 20 drops of lemon EO + 2 caps thieves cleaner + splash vinegar + little bitta wataaaa (h2o)
Pregnant Belly Butter//Stretch Marks
10 frank + 10 lav + 10 gentle baby, cocoa butter, shae butter and vitamin E oil. As your beautiful baby bump grows, so does your skin. Use this butter to prevent stretch marks and keep your baby feeling nice and relaxed in the womb. What a tiny miracle. 🙂
20 ylang ylang + 20 frank + 20 lav + 20 lemon (add tea tree if you tend to break out) + 2/3 cup of castille soap + 1/3 cup of witch hazel + 2 tea spoons of vitamin E oil. Add all of this to a foaming soap dispenser. Peep My Finds for the goods. ALSO, if you do not have all of these oils feel free to make it your own. Instead of Ylang Ylang I use geranium which is amazing for the skin, lemon is as well. Do you child.
It took me a bit but I finally got a concoction down. 10 drops of each. Lav, Cedarwood, Geranium, Frank, Lemon. Rosewater and organic Rosewater. Peep My Finds for the rose sprays.
Face Moisturizing Everyday Cream
15 frank, 10 lav, 5 cedarwood. In a baby mason jar add raw shea butter and organic coconut oil, heat them until they’re soft, almost liquid. Add the oils, jojoba and sweet almond oil. Place in your fridge overnight and voillaaaaaa.
Okay so you can either add lavender to your mascara or create the serum to use at night before bed. Mix lavender, cedarwood and rosemary with castor oil and sweet almond. I would use 6 drops of each and more sweet almond than castor. The castor oil tends to be thick.
Face Moisturizing Serum
This weather has been tough on my face so I made this overnight serum that packs a little more punch for the winter wind. 15 frank, 10 lav, 10 geranium, 7 ylang ylang. Fill the rest with jojoba and sweet avocado carrier oil. I had bad patch of eczema (self diagnosed) on my neck for like a month so I’m extra thankful for this serum. This bad boy should get your skin back to the moisture level of a Caribbean island overnight.
Hair, Body + Face Mask
Grab a jar of organic coconut oil, add frankincense, lavender, cedarwood and grapefruit. This will act as your hair, body and face mask. I use this every single night on my face and body and on as a hair mask when I’m relaxing, cleaning the house, etc. I made an under eye roller out of these oils as well, for morning and night use. Promise, you’ll never buy a CVS face mask again.
Dandruff, Pimples, Bumps, Athletes Foot, etc.
Tea tree works miracles. This anti-fungal oil clears unwanted dandruff and buildup, surprise pimples and so much more.
Friggin Lavender/Sleep Roller
Not only good for sleep! Add lav to your mascara, shampoo, condition and face products. Major improvement in all aspects. Lavender is used for skin rashes as well. Idk how people live without it, gotta be honest. For the sleep roller, add 10 drops of lav, 10 drops of stress away (I also add oregano oil which is great for calming as well). Add a carrier and roll this down your spine at night, under the feet as well.
Organic rosewater spray (My Finds), frankincense, rose, lavender, cedarwood and geranium. This I use all day, every day. This little homemade gem keeps your skin moist and refreshed at all times. Doesn’t F with your makeup either, if anything it sets it throughout the day. You know when you’re flying and your skin gets all dried out from the high altitude? Never again, guys. Never again.
Under Eye Roller
Lavender, cedarwood, frank, geranium, ylang ylang and copiaba. Mix with your favorite carrier oil. I used jojoba for my skin. Literally obsessed with this roller. UPDATE: I’ve added new oils that mix well with my skin such as blue cypress, royal hawaiian sandalwood, rose and jasmine.
Orange eo + clove eo + baking soda and a smidge of water for consistency. Leave on your pearly whites for about 20 mins every other day.
I’ll keep this doc updated for my oils peeps out there. Got you guys.
