Amlactin lotion has been the best lotion for my skin.
 
 
Skin-needling has helped with my stretch marks so much...I just hate the healing process (the itchingStern Smile)

Mango Citrus Body Butter

This recipe is listed as mango and LIME body butter, but I added a citrus 
essential oil blend which had an even balance of lemon, lime, sweet orange, 
and tangerine.

Ingredients:

10g beeswax or jojoba wax
25g cocoa butter
30g shea butter
25 g mango butter
1 tsp almond oil
1 tsp vitamin E
20 drops citrus essential oil (recipe suggested 10 lime, 5 sweet orange, 5 lemon)
Equipment

Double boiler
Metal spoon
Airtight 100ml jar
Digital kitchen scale (this wasn’t listed in the recipe but it is essential for weighing
your ingredients)

Instructions:

1.  Melt the beeswax, cocoa butter & mango butter in the double boiler.  Leave mixture over a gentle heat for 20 minutes to prevent the butter from going grainy when it cools.

2. Add the almond oil and vitamin E and heat for a few more minutes until completely liquid.

3. Remove from heat and add essential oils, stirring thoroughly

4. Pour into jars and leave to set.


Review 5/5

Five stars!  This recipe is great.  It’s easy, smells delightful, and makes your skin feel amazing.  Some people may be adverse to the oilyness that takes a bit of good massaging to rub in, but I don’t mind in the least.  My skin feels delightfully soft if I apply right out of the shower and it is even healing my dry heels after a week of use when no other moisturizer has.

Skin Care Series - Eye Cream


Today I want to share my favorite eye cream with you.  It is super simple to make using only two ingredients - coconut oil and Vitamin E.  In yesterday's post we learned that coconut oil is a protective antioxidant and supports tissue repair and healing.  

First you need to find a container to make your cream in.  The one in the picture is a miniature jelly jar.  My guess is that it is between a half and one ounce.  In the past, I've just used clean eye contact containers.  

Fill your container with coconut oil.  It is solid at room temperature and doesn't begin to melt until it reaches 76 degrees Fahrenheit.  So, at this point I put it in the microwave for just a couple of seconds until it begins to melt.  Next, you poke a hole in your Vitamin E capsules and add to the melted coconut oil.  For the jar above I used 3 capsules.  I use 1 capsule per side when using contact containers.  Then, I use a tooth pick or wooden skewer and blend them together.  At this point I put the cream in the refrigerator to become solid again.  After that happens there is no need to keep it refrigerated.  The oils will not become rancid.

GINGER SUGAR SCRUB FOR FACE 
AND BODY

FEBRUARY 9, 2012 BY SHAINA OLMANSON

1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon ginger, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup cold-pressed oil (tea seed, grape seed, sunflower, or almond oil)
3/4 cup granulated or turbinado sugar
1/4 cup kosher salt
1-4 drops essential oil (I used lemongrass)

In a small saucepan over low heat heat the coconut oil and ginger pieces. Continue

 heating for 5-10 minutes until ginger scent and juice has transferred into the oil. 

Remove from heat and press through a fine mesh sieve or through a coffee filter.

While the oil is still warm, mix together with cold-pressed oil. Stir to combine and 

allow to come to room temperature. Stir in sugar and salt. Scent with essential oils

 as desired. Pack into a container.

To Use: 

Massage into damp skin and allow to sit 2-4 minutes. Using a washcloth

 covered in warm water, steam over face or stand in a steamy shower for a minute. 

Using the wet washcloth, wipe excess from skin. Rinse and repeat until oil is washed

 away.

Makes approximately 8 ounces sugar body scrub.
