Whipped Coconut Oil Cleanser

Let's get to the new Coconut Oil Skin Polish...Yay!   Made with much the sameorganic ingredients as the cleanser along with the addition of cornmeal, creating a very fine and gentle cleanser AND skin polish in one special product!  


What makes the skin polish even more beneficial is the addition of EOspertaining to your skin's needs!



~ Coconut Oil Skin Polish Recipe ~


2 cups organic extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup avocado oil (olive is nice too)
1~1/4 cup cornmeal

Soften coconut oil, whip in the avocado oil, blend in cornmeal.

Recipe fills five 4oz canning jars!  Best gifts for your family & friends EVER!




Warmed in oven to soften.


Cornmeal and oils blended together with hand mixer.


Custom blend for blemishes:
(per 4 oz jar)
10 drops Lavender EO
5 drops Melaleuca EO

Coconut oil is F A B U L O U S for problem skin because of it's anti~bacterial and anti~microbial properties!  Melaleuca for a deeper clean and Lavender to calm and soothe skin.


Custom blend for hydrating and healing:
(per 4 oz jar)
10 drops Lavender
5 drops Geranium


For my aging skin, I add anti~aging EOs:  8 drops Frankincense, 5 drops Helichrysum, 2 drops Myrrh and 2 drops Geranium per 4 oz jar.



Add the EOs of 

your choice to the 

jars BEFORE you 

add the warmed 

oils.  Once filled, 

take a small whisk 

or a tiny spoon and 

very gently stir the 

EOs to blend ALL 

of the oils.  Let sit 

for an hour until 

cool and put the lids on 

snuggly!

And there you have it, your NEW addiction!  This all natural, skin nourishingPolish might be habit forming :)
