Young Living Oils | DIY face cream

I’ve wasted lots and lots of money on products only to be disappointed when they break my skin out or don’t give me what I need.  So I was super excited when I found a recipe for face lotion using Young Living Oils.  I adapted and changed it a bit to meet my needs but I’m excited to share it!

1/3 cup raw shea butter

1 tsp vitamin e

30 drops frankinsence

30 drops bergamot

15 drops lavender

10 drops lemon

10 drops purification

Melt shea butter in a glass bowl.  Add vitamin e and oils and whisk with an electric hand mixer for 1-2 minutes.  Pour into glass jar and put in fridge to set.  Use morning and night

So lets go into why I chose these things for my face cream.  I know what you are probably thinking, shea butter is super thick, and it is but it also rates 0 on the comedogenic ratings.  These ratings give a 0-5 rating to carrier oils and how they will clog your pores.  0 being will not clog pores and 5 being high.   Coconut oil is rated 4 and for someone who has trouble with breakouts I would not recommend coconut oil.  If you prefer a more liquid consistency I would recommend jojoba but its still rated at 2.  Hemp seed oil is rated at 0 as well but it doesn’t have a very long shelf life.  I buy my raw shea butter by the pound and use it for lots of stuff!

Frankincense, Bergamot, Lavender, Lemon, and Purification are all amazing for skin.

I also make a smaller version for just my eyes.  I pull out a heaping spoonful of the shea butter and melt then add 20 drops frankincense, 20 drops bergamot and 10 drops of lavender.
