This Lemon Exfoliating Scrub is so good for your skin and it is easy on the budget! Say hello to glowing skin!
What you need:
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and transfer to the glass jar.
Apply the scrub to your face once a week and to your body twice a week. Lemon is a photosensitive oil so I'd use this scrub at night to avoid your risk of sunburn.
🌿Green Clay Mask Powder
🌿Witch Hazel (Unscented)
🌿888 drops Eucalyptus Globulus
Add a little less than 1/2 cup Green Clay to a small bowl. Squirt in Witch Hazel and stir until it makes a paste. If it is too runny, add more powder. Stir in essential oils and transfer to a jar.
This mask will last for several months in a sealed jar at room temperature.
To use: Rub 2 tsp of mixture over clean face. Allow to sit on the skin for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.
🌿Detoxifying and Clarifying. It draws out the impurities in your skin.

🌿Reduces Inflammation. Green clay can help with red and puffy spots on your face.
🌿Antibacterial. Perfect for clear skin!
**If you don't prefer the tingly sensation of Eucalyptus on your face; Lavender, Frankincense, or Geranium essential oils would be excellent substitutions.
scant ½ cup shea butter
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup almond oil
20 drops of essential oil
Instructions: Melt shea butter and coconut oil over medium heat on the stove. I use the bowl of my stand mixer as a double boiler and let it rest on top of a pot of simmering water to do this. Once melted, let the mixture sit until it reaches room temperature. Stir in the almond oil. Place the mixture in the refrigerator and allow to cool until it turns opaque (a little over an hour). Attach bowl to the stand mixer and whip with the whisk attachment on medium until it is light and fluffy. Make sure you don’t whip too quickly or the mixture will melt. Add essential oils of your choice and lightly whip again until soft peaks form. Add to glass jars.
*Lavender, Orange, Elemi, Melrose, Cedarwood and Frankincense are all great essential oils to use to support your skin.
Add 1/4 cup of arrowroot powder, 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil, 3 drops of Cedarwood essential oil, and 2 drops of Lavender to the spice jar. Shake it up until the oils are mixed in. If you have dark hair, add in some mineral make up or cocoa powder until it reaches your desired color. (I used the Savvy Minerals Multitasking powder).
Shake on hair and rub in with your fingers, or shake into the cap and use a make up brush to apply to your roots.
🌿Rosemary supports a healthy scalp
🌿Lavender supports dry skin and stimulates hair follicles
