DIY Moisturizer from The Herbal Homestead

DIY Moisturizer

Make your own moisturizer with this easy recipe from The Herbal Homestead.

I am not a make up person. I rarely use it because I have sensitive skin and everything I have tried has resulted in some kind of allergic reaction.

So, that makes my skin care routine extra important because it is on display with no help from concealer or foundation.

I have found that this recipe is very effective and I have been very happy with the results.


This recipe will fill up a mason jar.

  • 1.5 cups of Coconut Oil
  • 35 drops of Lemon
  • 35 drops Lavender
  • 35 drops Melaleuca
  • 35 drops Frankincense


  • Whip the 1.5 cups of coconut oil in your Kitchen Aid Mixer for 7 minutes
  • Add essential oils and mix throughly
  • Pour into mason jar (I used a funnel to make sure I didn’t make a mess)
  • Use every morning and night on your face as a moisturizer (I also rub it on my hands and feet)
