Natural face oil mix - DIY Beauty

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.

Beauty haul: Aveeno, Heathcote&Ivory and Greenfrog Botanic

I haven't done much beauty shopping recently. With so much going on in my life at the moment, I am just using my reserves. I think this is just a perfect opportunity for me to reflect on my beauty routines and see if anything needs changing. 


We bought Aveeno Baby Hair and Body Wash for our little boy. It gently cleanses baby's delicate skin from top to toe without leaving it feeling dry. Aveeno Baby Hair and Body wash has a light scent; it is formulated with colloidal oat and oat essence; soap free and paediatrician tested. Will let you know later how do we like it, at the moment we are using it only as a hair wash. Little man is having water baths and I am using my hand made natural baby oil for his skin at the moment. His skin is beautifully clear and I believe he doesn't need much toiletries.

Another little tube of Heathcote and Ivory Blush Rose Hand and Nail Cream to enjoy this month. I have reviewed it in my December's empties, click here to read.

Greenfrog Botanic Geranium and Peppermint Bodywash came to me from one of my Glossyboxes. According to the brand this body wash is great for all skin types. It is organic, cruelty free and made with natural ingredients. The combination of moisturising aloe vera, calming geranium and cooling peppering oil in this body wash acts as a deep conditioner for the skin, leaving it hydrated, nourished and full of antioxidants. Lovely!

Have you tried any from above?
