Our Top 3 Favourite Beauty Recipes Using Essential Oils

All the pretty bath and body stores draw us in with their pretty packaging and bright colours, but unfortunately a dirty secret lies behind those funky looking bottles and it’s in the ingredients.

If you take away the bright stickers on conventional brand products, all you’ll be left with are an array of nasty chemicals that not only provide your skin with no real benefit, they can put your health at risk too.


Say goodbye to the fake stuff and try whipping up these super fun (and super easy!) DIY beauty recipes instead!


Lavender and rose body scrub

Who doesn’t love a good body scrub? We know we sure do!

They’re so easy to whip up that it’s almost a crime to spend money on one!

All you’ll need is raw sugar, coconut oil and some essential oils!

 

Ingredients


Method:

Add your coconut oil to your sugar and stir well to combine. Add your essential oils and get scrubbing!

Lavender is wonderful for soothing the mind and helping the body to relax, while rose is wonderfully uplifting and a natural aphrodisiac.


Makeup setting spray

You could honestly spend up to $50 on a makeup setting spray if you head into your nearest makeup store! Say what?!

Save your dollars and stock up on essential oils instead, because not only can you whip up some wonderful diy recipes, you can also reap the awesome aromatherapy benefits!

This diy setting spray can be used on clean skin or a fully made up face and will provide a refreshing burst of freshness at any time of day!


Ingredients:

  • Small Spray bottle
  • Pure, filtered water
  • 10 drops essential oils (tea tree is great for problem skin, Rose is hydrating and anti-aging and chamomile is super soothing)

Method

Add the water to your spray bottle along with your essential oils, shake it up and voila!


Split end revitalizer

beauty recipes

Split ends are a pain, but something that’s hard to avoid if you dye your hair or use heat on a regular basis.

This spray is the same as the above with the addition of some coconut oil to add deep hydration to seal split ends and add much needed protection. Spritz on wet hair and allow to dry naturally.


Ingredients:

  • Small Spray bottle
  • Pure, filtered water
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 10 drops essential oils (lavender, rosemary and chamomile are out favourite essential oils for hair and may help to promote hair growth if massaged into the scalp!)

Method:

Add the water, coconut oil and essential oils to your spray bottle (use a funnel to make it easier) and give it a good shake! It’s now ready to use.


These recipes will have your face, hair and body glowing, but if you have any more recipes to share with us we’d love to hear em!
