One of the easiest and fastest way to detox is to use essential oils, while there are many other options as well. Detoxing the body helps rid the body of waste and keeps skin well nourished. By choosing DIY essential oil moisturizer along with consuming healthy vegetables and plenty of water, you can keep your skin hydrated and fluids flowing throughout your system.

Anyone would naturally want to take care of their skin by choosing healthier options along with healthy food. Add plenty of vegetables to your diet to help improve your skin from the inside out.

Also include plenty of filtered water to keep your skin hydrated and fluids flowing throughout your system. Water aids your body by helping to eliminate unwanted items.

Ditch the chemical filled, toxic body care products. They do so much harm to not only your skin, but to your health. Many conventional products contain harmful items such as phthalates, parabens, triclosan, aluminum, and fragrance.

By adding in essential oils you’re taking back control over what goes on your skin. After all, the majority of what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body.

DIY Essential Oil Moisturizer

Directions

Use almond oil or coconut oil mixed with 1-2 drops of essential oil for a quick, DIY face moisturizer.

Same goes for a body moisturizer. I love combining 3 tablespoons coconut oil with 8-10 drops of my favorite essential oils as an easy non-toxic body moisturizer. My homemade body moisturizer easily lasts about a month or more!

Essential Oils For Skin Care

Some of my favorite essential oils for skin care are: the anti-aging blend (frankincense resin, Hawaiian sandalwood, lavender flower, myrrh resin, helichrysum flower, rose flower essential oils), lavender essential oil, frankincense essential oil, myrrh essential oil and helichrysum essential oil.

There are other essential oils that you can use as well. Make a list of the skin and/or health challenges you would like to address with essential oils and do some research to find the oils that will help you with your specific challenges.

That’s the beauty of essential oils! You can customize your products specifically to you.
