Yesterday we shared our current favorite facial mask, and today we are sharing the rest of our fall beauty routine! Does your skincare routine change with the seasons? Ours sure does…and this season is no exception.
Our DIY charcoal cleanser is crazy good. Simple. Effective. Smells good…okay…if we don’t have your attention now, we might never get it. To make this knockout cleanser, add 10 drops Bergamot, 10 drops Neroli and 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil into one of our 2 oz glass bottles with a treatment pump. Now add 1 teaspoon activated charcoal, 2 teaspoons of aloe vera, and fill the remainder of the bottle with our unscented foaming soap. Shake gently to combine, and you’re ready to cleanse! Start by splashing a little water on your face, add about three to four pumps of your cleanser to your hand, apply to your face in a circular motion, and rinse well afterward. That should do the job.
Now the last step…moisturizer. We’ve put together a facial oil this season that we can’t help but share! In a 2 oz dropper bottle, we added Jojoba and Fractionated Coconut oil in a 2 to 1 ratio with 5 drops Frankincense, 10 drops Chamomile German, and 5 drops Lavender essential oil. Check out our post yesterday to learn about the fantastic ability of Frankincense and German Chamomile to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Now add the soothing and cleansing properties of Lavender essential oil to take this facial oil to the next level. We love this combo for its healing actions that help bring balance back when environmental challenges arise! Balance…now that is a word to meditate and leave on. The real goal of any seasonal change.
There are several different methods of extraction used to obtain the essential oil of a plant. Today we want to talk about two of the most common methods - steam distillation (which is mainly used to produce essential oils) and solvent extraction (which produces absolutes, like our Jasmine Absolute).
