Summer Beauty Using Essential Oils

With the higher temperatures and increased sun exposure, summer is a time of the year when we are more conscious of the products we use on our skin and hair. This doesn’t mean we have to give up our beauty routine favorites. Updating some of our products to feature nourishing and gentle ingredients can help us make it through the heat while keeping our skin and hair healthy and soft. This is another instance where being minimalistic and focusing on our specific beauty needs is the way to go. A few recognizable, natural ingredients combined with our favorite properly diluted essential oils are all it takes to create the perfect summer beauty routine.

          Beach Day Smooth Shaving Cream

          Beach Day Smooth Shaving Cream

          When summer rolls around, it’s time to prepare to wear shorts, tanks, and swimsuits again. Effective and non-irritating shaving cream is a seasonal must-have to get our skin sleek, smooth, and ready to swim. Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera Oil, and Shea Butter work to keep the skin hydrated and soft while bentonite clay provides the slip needed for a smooth shave. Tea Tree, Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils help soothe skin irritation and avoid razor burn.

          Ingredients

          Instructions

          Add Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Shea Butter to a double boiler and heat until completely melted. Transfer the melted oil mixture into a bowl and stir in baking soda, Castile Soap, Aloe Vera Oil, bentonite clay, and essential oils. Stir well, then let the mixture cool for a few minutes. Once the mixture has cooled and is beginning to harden around the edges, use a hand mixer to whip it for three to five minutes or until a light, creamy texture is achieved. Store the finished product in an airtight container. To use, smooth a small amount onto the skin and shave. Rinse thoroughly.
