Everyone who knows me will tell you that I am a minalmist when it comes to makeup or beauty! In fact, I really only wear makeup when I am doing Tv or speaking engagements. With that said…I still have to invest beauty products. One product that I use the most is the makeup remover wipes. They work great but the downside is they cost a lot. So, after a little tinkering in my kitchen laboratory I came up with my best recipe for Homemade Makeup Wipes that you store in my favorite thing ever…canning jars!
1 tall wide mouth pint jar
1 package round cotton makeup wipes (next to the cotton balls)
1 cup bottled water
2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon Witch Hazel
5-6 drops lavender essential oil
Stack the cotton balls the jar. Don’t be afraid to pack them in there! In a small bowl whisk together the water, coconut oil, witch hazel and lavender. Pour the cleaning mixture slowly over the cotton wipes. Put the lid on and use!
Silky Soft Hand Scrub
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup liquid coconut oil
10 drops lavender essential oil (feel free to choose your own favorite essential oil
1 wide mouth pint jar
In the jar mix together the sugar, coconut oil and lavender oil. Stir till the sugar is coated with oil. Seal well and set by your kitchen sink. Just grab a little bit and then scrub your hands and rinse. You will be left with soft silky hands!
