Ahhhh...the wonders of Grapefruit essential oil!
As many of you already know, Grapefruit is one of my go~to essential oils for many things, including a headache! I also use it to moisturize after a shower by adding a whole bottle of essential oil to a whole bottle of Fractionated Coconut Oil, the best moisturizer for my skin!
A simple and wonderful toner to spritz on your clean face can easily be made with Grapefruit EO and water per 1 oz glass bottle.
8 drops of Grapefruit essential oil
Distilled Water (I've used plain ol tap water too)
Is there any essential oil more versatile than Lavender?
I've been using this product for years to set my makeup. It's pricey! However, when I set my make~up with a spritz of essential oil enhanced water, it makes all the difference! Make~up artists are never without this simple, yet effective tool!
I've since discovered that a blend of Lavender and water as a make~up finisher works amazingly well! Lavender makes perfect sense because of it's soothing, healing and restorative properties for skin tissue! Have you ever put Lavender on a fresh burn? It stops the burn and restores the skin, it's incredible for burns!
Add 8 drops of Lavender essential oil to 1 oz of distilled water in a glass spray bottle and spritz your face after applying make~up to set your artistry :)
You'll love it! Your make~up will look smoother and last longer!
