So... Maybe you aren't a DIYer. Or maybe you like to think you are a DIYer but just never get around to it? Then hip hip hooray for a skincare system from Young Living! It cleans, tones and moisturizers with naturally derived ingredients!
ART Gentle Cleanser promotes glowing skin by washing away impurities with a soft, gentle lather. Some think this face wash smells like Valor! Anyone else?! (Along with other natural cleansing ingredients, the oils included in this cleanser are: Frankincense, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Melissa, Lemon and Lavender) This cleanser is in a pump and is not think - it has a thinner base.
ART Refreshing Toner gently removes impurities without drying the skin. There is a slight peppermint undertone to this toner and it is just divine and oh so refreshing! (Along with other natural ingredients, the oils included in the toner: Peppermint, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon and Melissa). This toner is one of my personal favorites!
ART Light Moisturizer helps your skin retain and maintain proper hydration, leaving your skin feeling silky soft. (Along with other naturally moisturizing ingredients the oils included in this moisturizer include: Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood and Frankincense)
The Young Living ART skin care line is based around the orchid flower, which has been used in Chinese herbal medicine for thousands of years. Orchids have the ability to absorb and retain moisture and adapt well to extreme environments. The flower’s longevity is the key benefit that is emphasized in the ART skin care collection. Orchid extracts have an intense moisturizing effect And they support the strength of the skin’s main proteins, helping delay natural aging.

RECIPE: CHEMICAL FREE SHAVING CREAM
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup Shea butter
1/2 cup avocado oil
20-30 drops of your favorite essential oil(s)
1 T of baking soda
Melt together the coconut and Shea butter. Then the avocado oil to the mixture. Let cool slightly and add your favorite essential oils. (My standby is 10-15 drops each of lavender and lemongrass but the cooling action from a couple drops of peppermint is awesome as well!) Let firm up for about an hour in the fridge. Add 1 tablespoon baking soda and whip for a few minutes till fluffed. Store in a mason jar. A little goes a long way and you will not need to use any lotion - it leaves your skin naturally moisturized!
ORANGE BLOSSOM FACIAL WASH
This is another favorite of mine! I am in love with this face wash. I love that it is a good foaming face wash with a thicker liquid consistency that you can actually use it as a concentrate. Say what?!?! YES. You can use this face wash as a concentrate! Simply add 2 tablespoons of the Orange Blossom Facial Wash to 1 foaming pump bottle. Fill the pump bottle with water, and shake before each use! 2 pumps is all you need! It works itself into a lather and provides a really nice, deep cleaning feeling. It smells heavenly, too! You can definitely smell the orange blossom come through. (Along with other cleansing ingredients, the oils included in this facial wash are: lavender, orange blossom extract, patchouli, rosebud flower extract, lemon, German chamomile and rosemary).
