Today I would like to share a very simple face oil mix, which I am using for some time now in my oil cleansing routine. It consists from only two ingredients, but provides plenty of benefits to the skin.
Natural face oil mix
To make one of your own you will need:
- 100ml of olive oil
- 20 drops of Chamomile essential oil (or any oil of your choice)
- Clean plastic bottle or any bottle you wish to store your face oil in
To make the mix, you just need to pour the olive oil into a bottle and add the essential oil. Shake it well before each use and enjoy.
I love to use olive oil in my DIY recipes. It is great for the skin, contains four major antioxidants which allow it to work as a cleanser, moisturiser and it has good protecting properties as well. Among the antioxidants are vitamins A and E.
Calming and soothing properties of chamomile essential oil are perfect for dry and/or sensitive skin. It helps to eliminate redness and irritation, brightening and enhancing the overall appearance of the skin. I used this oil mix during my second pregnancy as a facial cleanser and it took a very good care of my skin, leaving it fresh and well moisturised.
If you like your skin care simple and straight forward as I do, this is a good mix to try out; and if you prefer a more elaborate blends, why not to add other carrier/ essential oils to the mix to create your own special mix. I am looking forward to read about your adventures in the comments below.
