You will see and feel your skin dramatically improve over time. I have been using this recipe for over 5 years and haven’t had dry skin since. Dry skin can cause all sorts of problems. Conventional lotions with alcohol and other chemicals can make our skin even worse. My gift to you this year is silky gorgeous skin! Of course there is no magical potion that will completely rid you of your skin problems, drinking enough water daily, and eating local unprocessed food will regenerate your cells and keep your skin glowing throughout the years!
Essential Oils | Raising Vibrations
Feel free to add any essential oils you like. I like to switch it up with a combination of lavender & rose or cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
If you have ever read about essential oils you may have come across many articles pertaining to essential oils and frequency. It is said that essential oils have different frequency levels, peppermint for instance has a frequency of 78MHz. They say a healthy human body operates anywhere between 62-68MHz, any lower and cells will start to mutate and cause all sorts of problems. So basically the higher your frequency the healthier and stronger your immune system will be. Essential oils have the power to raise our vibrational frequency. All of this is so fascinating to learn about and so if you want to read more here is a great article on the subject Vibrational Frequency and the Subtle Energy Nature of Essential Oils
Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Oil
Normally when I look for oils, I like to look for cold pressed extra virgin oils. This ensures maximum retention of vitamins and essential fatty acids. Raw cold pressed extra virgin oils have lots of vitamin E and protein needed for healthy skin regeneration.
The Many Uses
I use this body butter recipe not only as a moisturizer but also for cuts, scrapes, burns and scars. These oils help you heal faster and reduces the risk of scarring. Raw organic oil’s can also be used as lip moisturizer, makeup remover and so many other things, so I encourage you to ditch all those conventional products that really don’t do the job like natural homemade recipes!
