With the weather getting colder in the PNW my skin needs extra love, so I have been working on few new potions to add to my skin care routine. I already have my face and body oils and are super beneficial during the colder months, and now I am brewing up a detoxing body wash. I always start with organic avocado or sunflower oil.
Organic avocado oil ,Helps to heal and repair skin damage and skin problems, as well as provides protection from the UV rays, increases collagen in skin, and slow the aging process. https://amzn.to/32xl6e1
Vitamin E (from Sunflower oil) Helps alleviate sun damage, skin dryness, acne and premature aging. Rich in antioxidants and beta carotene. Creates a protective layer to shield environmental toxins and harmful rays of the sun.
Castile Soap was added to gently cleanse the skin without harmful toxins. Castile soap also helps to balance the ph of the skin, ease eczema and psoriasis and naturally hydrate the skin. YAY! https://amzn.to/2BrXWKj
Then I decided what “magical” properties I want to include. For the body wash I adding a detoxifying blend of essential oils, Tangerine peel, Rosemary, Geranium, Juniper Berry and Cilantro Oil. This blend delivers powerful antioxidants and allows for our cleansing organs like the livers, kidneys and colon, to function properly. Next I added honey: Raw Honey is great for our skin due to its antibacterial properties and skin saving antioxidants.
Last up was Argan Oil, another great source of antioxidants in addition to helping to ease inflammation.
The combination of the these magical plants creates a wonderful body wash with an uplifting sent. I am always looking for ways to remove toxic chemicals from my life and my kids life. Every little bit helps, plus I love creating potions with my little witches.
