Are you tired of reading labels with ingredient names that you cannot pronounce, need a dictionary to understand or the internet to decipher the level of toxicity? If so and if you are concerned about applying non-toxic ingredients to your skin, the largest organ of your body then worry no more and instead have fun and make your own body lotion and scrub with ingredients found in your kitchen. It is fun and easy and then you will know exactly what the ingredients are- simple back to the basics. And they make great gifts too!

DIY Cream

1/2 cup of shea butter

2 tbsp. avocado oil

and/or

2 tsp of jajoba oil

5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil, I like to use rose or lavender

preparation; mix the shea butter and avocado oil/jajoba oil in sauce pan over very low heat.Stir until melted. Pour into glass container and add essential oils. You can refrigerate until creamy and use liberally..enjoy! Works best after a warm bath or shower.

DIY Scrub

1/2 cup of sugar or xylitol

1/2 cup sea salt

1/4 cup coconut oil

5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil, I like to use rose or lavender

Preparation: combine all ingredients in a glass jar and store in a cool dry place. Rub onto skin while in the shower then rinse.

Have fun with these and play by adding your own scents and different ingredients to see what you like the best. then send me your favorite recipes so I can enjoy too!
