Essential Oil Beauty DIYs with Vitruvi
There are endless possibilities and uses for essential oils and I find that experimenting is half the fun! These three DIYs I created for beauty are ones that I use all the time. They're all cost-effective and easy to put together using easy to find stuff you probably already have! I hope you make some of them and please let me know what you think if you do!
Luxurious Bath Soak //
1 c epsom salt
10 drops geranium essential oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
fresh eucalyptus leaves (I found mine at Trader Joe's)
fresh chamomile blossoms (I found mine at Trader Joe's)
Add the epsom salt to your container and add the essential oils. Place the lid on and shake to incorporate everything.
Run a hot bath and sprinkle in about a 1/4 cup (or more if you'd like!) of the mixture in to your bath. Add in the eucalyptus leaves and chamomile blossoms, light some candles, and grab a good book!
Facial Toner //
I am a die-hard S.W. Basics fan and I use their face cream religiously every evening before bed. I really love their toner as well but after shelling out the high price tag a few times, I took a look at the ingredients list and realized it would be very easy and cheaper to make myself so now I do! I created this version using geranium which is great for keeping your skin glowing and healthy and rosemary which has anti-bacterial properties which can aid clearing up acne and blemishes. I look forward to applying it each night after I've washed my face. It's refreshing and soothing and it really helps keep my skin clear, too. During the Summer I keep it in the fridge so it's nice and cool when it's hot outside! It's such a treat.
Facial Toner //
In a glass measuring cup or mason jar, combine water, apple cider vinegar, witch hazel, and essential oils. Pour into a glass bottle, place the lid on, and shake just before using.
Shake the bottle well to mix the ingredients and dispense enough to wet a cotton round. Swipe all over a freshly washed and dried face. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer. Here's mine.
Dry Shampoo //
Using a funnel, spoon the arrowroot powder into a bottle with a narrow neck. Add the essential oils directly into the bottle, replace the lid, and shake.
Shake a little into your hands, rub them together to evenly disperse dry shampoo, and rub into your hair wherever you need to soak up a little extra oil or add volume.
If you're worried it'll leave white residue, not to fret! I have dark brown hair and it brushes right out! If you find you can detect any residue, though, you can mix in a few teaspoons of cocoa powder into the mix and voila! No residue.
