Fill a glass container upto 1/4 capacity with equal amounts of dead sea salt, epsom salt, green tea leaves, food-grade diatomaceous earth or Atlantic kelp and baking soda. Fill the rest of the container with extra virgin olive oil and add 10-20 drops of lavender essential oil. While the mix is ready for use, allowing it to sit for a couple of hours enhances its potency.

Are you ready for beautiful, glowing skin? This Power Oil is rich in minerals and nutrients that are great for your skin. I have been using it for less than a week and the skin all over my body is softer than it has been in a long time.

This recipe came from my fellow Wellness Advocate, Jennifer Carr from Wildflower Wellness. When she was in massage school at A New Beginning School of Massage in Austin, TX, her hydrotherapy teacher, Michael Vance, taught her to make this incredible oil. She passed on the recipe to me at an essential oil class and she is graciously allowing me to share it with you guys. (She has incredible skin that looks like perfection!).
