warning :)

Sorry for any typos. I mostly blog from my iPhone lying in bed nursing a baby or sitting on the couch nursing a baby, or wearing a baby nursing. In between home schooling and laundry and diaper changing. Oh did I mention I might be nursing a baby? The point is, I rarely sit down at the computer. Thanks for understanding. You're the best!

DIY Face Serum.

I have crazy dry skin. Like crazy dry. I have to put lotion on my hands or face RIGHT AFTER I WASH THEM, Otherwise they crack. Ahhhh.

I started washing my face using the oil cleansing method about 4 years ago and that has help greatly!!
But I was still needing to put on a moitserizer very quickly after washing. 
I tried to use almond oil as a moitserizer. I tried coconut oil. I had tried other store bought moisturizers. My favorite has been just plain old Jergens lotion 😀
I wanted something more natural though. 
Here is what I came up with. I use this morning and night. 

DIY FACE SERUM. 

- 2 TBS avocado oil

- 5-6 drops frankincense essential oil

-5-6 drops lavender essential oil 

I put mine in a little glass jar with a dropper. I use about 2 drops morning and night! 

I'm not an essential oil expert but from what I've been reading these two oils are excellent for skin care.

Let me know if you try it.

Here is a video of me explaining how to make it.
