Coconut oil works well as a make-up remover and moisturiser on it own. Adding cocoa butter and essential oils both nourishes the skin and and gives your skin tone a boost.
This cleanser is good for most skin types, but particularly dry skin.
To make this you will need:
- 50g coconut oil
- 50g cocoa butter (deodorised cocoa butter is fine, but undeodorised gives the balm a nice chocolately smell)
- 1 capsule vitamin E oil
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops neroli essential oil
Gently melt the cocoa butter and coconut oil in a double boiler. Remove from the heat. Pierce the vitamin E capsule and squeeze the contents to the butter/oil mix. Stir in the essential oils. Transfer to a small, lidded pot or jar and allow to cool.
To use: Gently massage a small amount into your face. Rinse with warm water.
Will keep for up to three months. In very warm weather the cleanser can get a bit soft, so you may need to keep it in the fridge.
