Lavender + Tea Tree Avocado Mask // Young Living Essential Oils

Headed Somewhere Blog
For a long time I was fascinated by essential oils and the claims people made about the benefits they received from using them. There was part of me that badly wanted to believe that these amazing oils were miracle workers… that they were a magic potions that would make me beautiful, give me superhero muscles and make my baby sleep. I’m here to tell you it has not happened overnight. But I SERIOUSLY believe in these little bottles and that they hold a lot more goodness and “magical” power than I previously gave them credit for.

I received 11 oils in my starter kit. My favorite is the Thieves oil, a blend created by Young Living. It smells like rich cinnamon deliciousness and will take you away to a place filled with spice cake, red hots and honey, not to mention, it will seriously boost your immune system and help you to fight off any bugs that may be lingering. 

After diffusing each and every one of the Young Living oils that came in the starter kit over the course of 2 days, mixing them in my water, diluting them for use as cleaner, rubbing them on my feet, my baby’s feet, my husband’s feet and my neighbors feet, I decided the only next logical thing would be to put them on my face. I created a mask with ingredients that are known to help heal and moisturize your skin.

1/2 Avocado

1/2 c. Organic Kefir Yogurt

1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

3 drops Young Living Tea Tree Oil

3 drops Young Living Lavender Oil

Smash up your avo, mix in the yogurt, vinegar and your oils. Mix well and apply to face for 7-10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Headed Somewhere BlogThe vinegar acts as a toner and it is effective in unblocking pores and keeps your skin from becoming too dry. Tea Tree Oil is commonly used for treating problem skin and conditions such as acne. Lavender acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce the appearance of scars and speeds up the healing process.

There is something so natural about using oils in my everyday… and my house smells amazing. To learn more or to order your own check them out HERE!!
