Delicious Black Facial Scrub
I made this recently for some of my Wildrose Magnolia clients and I’d love to share the simple recipe with you!
First off let me just say that it smells delicious and the ingredients are so clean you could eat this up with a spoon:)
Now that’s my kinda skincare!
Raw Organic Coconut Oil (melted)
Organic Coconut Sugar
dōTERRA geranium, lavender & frankincense
Depending on the size of class jar you are repurposing combine aprox 1/2 cup soft/melted raw coconut oil to one cup of sugar - add one TBS charcoal and aprox 4 drops each of EO
How to use: take a small dollop to your freshly cleansed face (or, if your skin is super dry this could serve as your CLEANSER), gently exfoliate in circles, you may leave on for a few moments to serve as a hydrating FACE MASK, then apply a warm facecloth to rinse off👌
- coconut charcoal/ draws out impurities, shrinks appearance of pores, gentle exfoliant
- raw coconut oil/ essential fatty acids, moisturizing, antibacterial properties
- coconut sugar/ contains amino acids (collagen booster) and trace vitamins & minerals
- geranium/ calms inflammation, balances oil production & hormones
- lavender/ calms inflammation & acne, antibacterial, sunburns & mild burns, sedative
- frankincense/ protective skin cell properties, decreased appearance of wrinkles, scars & dark spots
With love from your Radiant Rebel,
Stealing some time for a little self care is just a bloody-well FANTASTIC idea!
Today that looked like exercise & sweat, a face mask, and a dog walk. (with a guided meditation playing through my earphones)
We’ve all got a ton going on, some are dealing with chronic stress, illnesses, work, financial stuff, family stuff, ‘adulting’ and trying to be a good human in the world.
Carving out a few moments, or maybe an hour, to care for your body & mind is important as all heck!
I have to remind myself sometimes that if I am too busy for a little time out ...well that’s often when it is the most needed!
So here I am with a rather fun and delicious ‘honey matcha facial mask’. There’s just something about applying a face mask that says ‘mama it is time to RELAX’.🙂
So here’s what I did; to my dōTERRA clay mask I added 1 tbs matcha powder + 1tbs honey and a drop of geranium EO. I love honey for facial care, it’s antibacterial and leaves my skin really soft. Geranium is excellent for skin health & mood, and Matcha (think green tea)is high in antioxidants.
Plus I love the colour:)
My mug felt exfoliated and soft as a baby’s...but most importantly I felt centred & relaxed.
