Homemade Face Moisturizer

Thanks to Finoralena for this guest post today!

It's definitely still winter time. I can tell because my skin dries out and feels rough. I was therefore glad to look into this topic and see what I could add to my little collection of homemade toiletries. I started researching and digging around for something simple, yet effective (including reading through an entire skin section in the Organic Body Care Recipes book). I found some ideas, and with a few adjustments, came up with the following recipe. Who knew it would be so easy to add a natural, refreshing moisturizer to your daily routine? If you are experiencing Winter's harsh effects on your delicate facial ski, keep reading; it couldn't be much more simple.

What You Need:

facelotion

What To Do:

Pour each ingredient into a small bowl or jar, mix thoroughly, and store in your pretty container. That's it!
(Or you could even skip the bowl and add everything directly to your final container, close lid tightly and shake.)
A tip for combining the essential oils is to add them a drop at a time, shaking/stirring between each drop.

This recipe is so simple, it could easily be modified to individual preferences. Do you want this to be scentless? Use a plain hydrosol (distilled water) and no essential oils. Would you rather have a more varied floral scent? Use lavender essential oil instead of the chamomile or rose essential oil.

Keep in a convenient place to add a splash of hydration to your skin when you feel the need, or store it with the rest of your toiletries to add into your daily skin care routine.

You can get glycerine by the gallon from Azure Standard Co-op or other health food or co-op places, even Amazon sells it! Not sure what to do with a gallon of glycerine? Here are some other recipes you can try!

So basically I can just use distilled or rose water mixed with glycerin? I’m very sensitive to scents but at times it’s okay if it’s subtle.
