All natural homemade face and body moisturizer

Recently, I visited one of my Mom's and my favorite blogs. Miss Jacqueline at Deep Roots at Home shared an all natural coconut based recipe for dry skin (face and body). Really, It's quite simple. And it WORKS!!!!!! Your skin will feel sooo soft after you put it on. I almost always put some on when I get out of the shower, or after I wash my face. Another great thing about using this moisturizer is that it helps with acne! Thankfully, I don't really struggle with acne, but once in a while I'll get a pimple. It actually makes your whole face look cleaner, and makes your pimples less noticeable!  So, here is the miracle moisturizer recipe :)

You will need: A small jar with lid
~enough Virgin Coconut Oil to fill the jar allowing 1/2″ head room
~approx 5-10 drops of your choice of Essential Oil(s) for every 1 TBSP of coconut oil.
Count out how many TBSP of oil you will need to fill your jar. Place them in a bowl along with your essential oils, and stir. Spoon into your little jar, and seal, being sure to write what essential oils you used on a piece of tape, or sticker. If you want a clean refreshing scent, try using Geranium (Rose), Sweet Orange, Lemon, or Grapefruit. For something more romantic, try Sandalwood, Cedar Wood, or Ylang Ylang. Or if you want something to encourage you to get the day going, try using Frankincense, Jasmine, or Mandarin. A lot of you probably don't have essential oils, but you can order some from Mountain Rose Herbs.  Hope you guys try this out, and find it as awesome as I do!

 P.S. Using this does not promote oily skin as long as you don't put tons on. Also, depending on the temperature you store your jar of moisturizer, it will either harden (if it's in a cool room) or turn into a liquid  soup (if it's in a warm room).
