DIY Natural Skin Care ProductsWhy make your own products when you can easily purchase them at a store?
For a start you have control over what ingredients are in them.
You can ensure there are no hidden nasties or preservatives and you can customise them to suit how your skin is behaving and what it needs at that time.
This also means that you can be certain that they haven't been tested on animals and that your products are 100% cruelty free.
Secondly, you'll reduce wastage. You'll be reusing your bottles instead of buying a brand new one each time you need a new product.
If you can join with friends and make them in bulk, then even better.
So reducing landfill and being more sustainable are huge positives to making your own products.
Thirdly, you'll be saving a truck load of money! These products are better than any of the top shelf ones I've tried and you can make them at a fraction of the price! And finally, you're being self sufficient and learning a skill that you can then share with others rather than relying on a company to create it for you.
These beautiful products also make wonderful hand-made gifts that I have used to wow many a person!
If those aren't enough reasons then how glorious your skin will start to look and feel will be! Because at the end of the day, if you're trying to be healthy inside and out then you have to take as much care with the quality of products you apply to your skin as you do with the quality of food you ingest.
30-50 drops of your choice of essential oils (this is for the whole mix. if you are dividing into small jars you only need about 8 drops of oil in each jar.
Combine the apricot oil, jojoba oil,cocoa butter, shea butter,glycerin and emulsifying wax into a small saucepan.
On low heat, gently stir the ingredients until they are melted. Do not use high heat, and never allow the mixture to boil.
