Exfoliating Facial Cleanser and Body Butter

Facial Cleanser and Body Butter

One of the best things about using essential oils is discovering that you can use them to make your own chemical-free beauty products.  I’d been wanting to try my hand at homemade body butter and after seeing a recipe for one on Instagram, I decided to give it a go.

Body Butter:
1 cup raw coconut oil
1/2 cup shea butter
1 Tablespoon vitamin E oil
15 drops of your favorite essential oil

*Mix on high until light and fluffy.

For mine I decided to use lavender and Joy.  Lavender is wonderful for your skin and I thought Joy would give it a nice bonus as a mood booster.  Joy is a blend that contains Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Rose, and several other luxurious oils.

Joy Essential Oil

My batch made a ton, so I put a little bit in a small jar I could keep on my vanity and then put the remainder in a big canning jar that I could re-fill from.

Eric had also asked if I could make him some sort of facial cleanser because he was about to run out of what he had been using.  So, I looked around online and found a super simple recipe to try.

Exfoliating Facial Cleanser:

1/4 cup Castile soap
1 T baking soda
3/4 tsp coconut oil
10 drops lime
10 drops tea tree

*doubled this for 1 jar
*shake before using

I followed the recipe, including using lime and tea tree oil.  Because lime is a citrus oil, you must put it in a glass container as it will break down plastics.  But I thought lime would be a great invigorating scent to use in the shower.  I did get a bit concerned about using a glass container in the shower, especially if your hands get slippery, so next time I make this I’ll use something other than a citrus oil.  But if you’re using this at the sink, glass is just fine.  And the baking soda in this recipe is a very gentle exfoliator.

Tea tree oil (Melaleuca A.) is also excellent for skin along with other healthy properties.

I hope you give these a try – let me know if you do!
