Moisturizer for Skin, Hair and Scalp
1 (2 oz.) BPA Free, Oil-Safe Glass or Plastic Container
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil (calming)
10 drops Melaleuca Essential Oil (rejuvenating)
10 drops Frankincense EO (anti-aging/inflammation)
5-10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil (acne/healthy skin)
5-10 drops Juniper Berry Essential Oil (acne or problematic skin)
5-10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil (for hair growth and scalp)
5 drops Lemon Essential Oil (cleansing)
5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (drives the other oils in)
1 ½ -2 Tablespoons Fractionated Coconut Oil, Squalane (Ultra Fine Olive Oil), Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Avocado Oil, Mineral Oil, Rose Hip Oil, or a combination of several or all of these oils. These oils are non-comodogenic and moisturizing. Mineral Oil is the best for acne-prone skin!!!
In a 2 oz. oil-safe glass or plastic container, add the lavender, melaleuca, frankincense, cedarwood,
juniper berry, lemon, and peppermint essential oils. Add the fractionated coconut oil to nearly
the top of the container. Leave some empty air space at the top between the lid and oil, for air circulation and for the ease of shaking. Place the lid on the container. Shake to combine the oils.
Shake each time before use.
A little moisturizer goes a long way. Just a few drops will cover your entire face. This can also be used as a shine enhancer for your hair, or a moisturizing hair serum. Don't use too much or you may look shiny/greasy. I apply the serum to the ends of my hair only, and when it is wet. Do not apply to the scalp during the day, unless you have a dry scalp. You can apply generously at night to dry or wet hair, as a hair mask. You will want to wear a shower cap, or braid your hair. Then shampoo and condition as usual in the morning.
This is also great for anyone that has problematic skin or hair. Fractionated Coconut Oil and Lemon are both cleansing. Lavender, Melaleuca, Cedarwood, Juniper Berry, and Frankincense will calm and support your skin! Rosemary is great for hair and scalp. The peppermint helps to open pores to drive the oils in, and leaves a fresh, clean, tingling feel to the skin. I would only use lavender and melaleuca if you are using this for babies and small children!
