CALL ME AN ALCHEMIST! I've wanted to live off my own household & self-care products for awhile now, but never made the commitment until this year! I FEEL LIKE A WIZARD creating these concoctions! 🧙♂️👨🔬🤭
I made this minty citrus vanilla body lotion for my friends @jzam214 @minamomo
Here is how to make it:
2 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tbsp shea butter, 1 tsp almond oil, 10 drops vanilla essential oil, 5 drops wild orange essential oil, 3 drops tea tree oil. Mix it together & put in glass jar you can infinitely reuse.
HOW DOES THIS HELP EARTH?
-Making own products reduces plastic consumerism packaging for products, thus you are actively helping the world.
-These bulk products also allow you to save money, you can make several batches that last longer than an equivalent quantity of your store product.
-Healthwise, many self care products have parabens, which disrupt your estrogen levels! Some have synthetic coloring or fragrant chemicals, which can be carcinogenic!
