Dewy Delicious Face Cream

We all want to look our best and each have different ways of accomplishing this.  I have never been much of a make-up wearer.  Not because I have anything against it, but more because I don’t really know what I’m doing and it makes my skin feel funky.  What I do love for my face is a great moisturizer.

My skin has always been slightly sensitive and on the dry side.  As I get older (45 this year.  OY!) I find that I need to apply moisturizer morning and night.  Because I like to keep things simple I wanted one product that worked all night and all day.  After much research and some trials I have come up with a blend that works well for my needs.  If you’d like to purchase my DEW Face Balm you can purchase here.

Let’s talk a little bit about the essential oils used in my blend.  I have chosen frankincense and geranium oils because they both have some wonderful properties which I’ve listed below.  As mentioned before I only use doTerra essential oils which can be purchased here.

Geranium

  • Wrinkle reducer
  • Fading the look of scars and healing wounds
  • Cell regeneration
  • Treatment of acne and other skin diseases

Frankincense

  • Wrinkle reducer
  • Cell regeneration
  • Astringent and toner
  • Reduces age spots

To make this moisturizer you will need a bowl and hand mixer, storage containers (I used to clean and reuse containers), and the ingredients listed below.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Raw Shea Butter
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Apricot Kernel Oil
10-15 drops Geranium Essential Oil
10-15 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

First you want to make sure the first three ingredients are fully melted so they will blend.  If you have to use microwave or double broiler you are going to need to cool in freezer for 10-20 minutes before you can whip ingredients.  When cool enough it will look something like this.  IMG_2687

 

 

 

 

 

 

At this point add your essential oils.  This recipe uses geranium and frankincense though there may be others you prefer for your skin type.  Now whip until fluffy.

Now put into jars and give your thirsty face a drink.
