Face scrub, moisturizer, coconut oil experiment….

Ok a long while back I questioned using a homemade deodorant made of ev coconut oil, cornstarch, baking soda and essential oils as a face wash….
Well I got behind in using it so that experiment is failed… However, I just made a fresh batch without the cornstarch to use specifically as a facial scrub and moisturizer…..
Approximately:
4 tbs of extra virgin coconut oil
2 big tsp of baking soda
Mix them, then slightly melt
Added a lot of drops of lavender and a lot of drops of absolute rose essential oils….
Mixed and now I’m allow to cool and solidify into a solid mass instead a porcelain cup with lid….
Experiment to being tmw….or tonight…. Not sure…….

Update: put a pea sized amount on your finger and rub around your dry face. Gently exfoliate. Rinse with cool or warm water until baking soda is gone but oily film remains. Pat dry.

Update: just so you know: lavender essential oil cam be applied neat to skin but rose oil needs to be diluted in a carrier oil.
