-2 2 oz tincture bottles
-Jojoba or avocado oil
-Essential Oils of choice. I used:
-10 drops eucalyptus
-5 drops tea tree
-10 drops citrus blend
-15 drops lavender
-5 drops peace & calming
-A few drops of tea tree
1. Fill your two tincture bottles with oil. I filled them about 3/4 of the way full
2. Carefully add your oils - usually they pour slowly enough that you can count the drops
3. Screw top back on tightly and roll the bottle around in your hands to incorporate the oils. Turn over once or twice.
4. Apply a small amount to your hand and gently rub all over your face and neck!
For drier skin, avocado oil is best. My skin can never make up its mind on whether or not to be oily or dry, and jojoba is nice for a good balance.
This started because I kept seeing people using fancy "all natural" face serums - but they cost so much money! I looked up the ingredients for a popular brands serum and thought, hey, I can make this myself! With stuff I already have in the house! Moisturizers always make me break out, but my skin dries out a lot in the winter. This is the perfect balance that helps my skin stay moisturized without making it oily (which is funny, considering I'm literally using oil...) - and the essential oils make my face smell great! The citrus wakes me up in the mornings and the lavender helps chill me out at night. I couldn't recommend this practice more.
