Homemade coconut oil night cream

Store-bought skin care products are not only pretty expensive, but they are also packed with chemicals that can be potentially dangerous. So, why not treat yourself to your own all-natural homemade beauty products:-) They are effective, incredibly nourishing, completely safe to your skin, simple to make and will help you save lots of money each year!

To prepare this coconut oil face cream you need:

- 1tbsp coconut oil
- 2 and 1/2 tsp cocoa butter
- 1/2tbsp olive oil
- 5drops tea tree essential oil
- 5drops lavender essential oil 

Combine the coconut oil, olive oil and cocoa butter in a glass container, place it in a bowl full of hot water and stir constantly until the ingredients are completely melted

Let the mixture cool a little and add the essential oils, stir well

Let it cool completely and the cream will become solid. There's no need to store it in the fridge as all the ingredients are already shelf stable and no watter was added. Store it for no longer than 6 months. Use this cream every evening after washing your face and applying a toner (if you want to make a homemade facial toner have a look here). Your skin will be young and happy! Be healthy and beautiful:-)
