DIY Face Cream: Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is simple and real goodness whipped into a fluffy, antioxidant packed DIY face cream. Gentle and light enough for your face and body, this homemade moisturizer is perfect for keeping your skin silky smooth. It’s made from one glorious ingredient; organic, unrefined coconut oil, which you can purchase at your local vitamin or health foods store. You can tweak it to your liking by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oils for added benefits and fragrance. Always remember to perform a skin test with the formula prior to applying it to your face to make sure there is no reaction.

It helps to refrigerate your oil first to get it cold as this can help the mixture get nice and fluffy. Based on your needs, place 1 cup of solid coconut oil into a mixing bowl and mix on high speed with a wire whisk for about 6-8 minutes until the consistency is light and airy. Don’t use a blender or food processor because they give off too much heat while mixing and it will melt the oil. Spoon the whipped coconut oil into a Mason jar or glass container that has a tight lid. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.

This DIY moisturizer is gentle enough for your face and will also work wonders as an all-over body moisturizer leaving you with supple, soft skin!
