My A+ Skin Care Routine Using Essential Oils

Headed Somewhere BlogMy skin has never been perfect. I feel like I am always jumping around, trying this and that, spending $60 on face wash that is supposedly going to accomplish everything I had ever dreamed, leaving my face looking dewey and fresh with a hint of sun kiss… maybe a little like Gisele Bundchen.

I’ve decided to go a different direction with my skin care routine after realizing how LONG and arduous my process was. I am all about simplifying and moving in a more natural direction.

I found this simple recipe and decided to give it a try. Turns out, I am obsessed… It leaves my skin silky smooth, cuts oil, and it smells amazing.


For combination skin:

1 part Castor Oil

3 parts another carrier oil of your choice. (liquified coconut oil, sunflower oil, olive oil or sweet almond oil.)

5-10 drops each essential oil. (Lemon, Lavender & Frankincense)

Glass bottle with dropper (Not necessary, but nice to have. I bought mine at a health food store for $3.50)


NOTE: Lemon and lavender do great things for problem acne prone skin, frankincense works for wrinkles and naturally fights aging.


Make sure to use the combination that is best for YOUR skin:

Oily Skin – 1 part Castor Oil to 2 parts other oil, or 30% Castor Oil and 70% other oils
Combination Skin – 1 part Castor Oil to 4 parts other oil, or 20% Castor Oil and 80% other oils
Dry Skin – 1 part Castor Oil to 9 parts other oil, or 10% Castor Oil to 90% other oils


Wet your face with warm water, use dime sized amount of wash. I use a wash cloth to scrub and exfoliate with the essential oil wash. It gives me a really deep clean feel.
