Want an easy homemade moisturizer that your mind and body will love? Look no further than this DIY moisturizer that contains chamomile and lavender!
Best Homemade Moisturizer Recipe: Homemade Chamomile and Lavender Body Moisturizer
Feeling stressed out? Why? You’ve only got a million and one things to do. 🙂 Just kidding, I get it. Life can be stressful… so, how about you take a little time to de-stress? I know, I know, you’re Busy (with a capital B), but all that stress is just not good for you. Taking even a few moments to relax can really boost your mental and physical health. One way I unwind is by treating myself to DIY spa-like treatments such as this homemade body moisturizer with chamomile and lavender essential oils.
While I’m sure an actual trip to the spa would work miracles, it simply isn’t in the budget (or the schedule) at the moment. Luckily, many spa treatments can easily be replicated at home. For instance, if you’re in the mood for a massage, whip up this homemade massage oil and enlist your spouse to help you work off some of that stress. Spas are also well known for their facial treatments, which you can replicate (at least in part) with this DIY moisturizer. (You may want to up the spa factor by starting out with this awesome microdermabrasion paste.)
I love this homemade skin moisturizer for a whole bunch of reasons. Hmmmm, where to begin? Well, for one, this homemade moisturizer recipe is sooo quick and easy. Other than the time it needs to sit in the fridge to solidify, this DIY moisturizer can be made in about 10 minutes. In addition to being simple, this homemade skin moisturizer is just so darn good for your skin (and your mental state).
This homemade moisturizer contains both chamomile and lavender essential oil. Here’s a closer look at their benefits:
Chamomile – This essential oil has been shown to help reduce anxiety. In fact, according to Dr. Axe, “A 2013 study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that an aromatherapy essential oil blend including lavender, Roman chamomile and neroli reduced anxiety levels in patients in an intensive care unit. The aromatherapy treatment effectively reduced the anxiety levels and improved the sleep quality of patients in ICU compared to conventional nursing intervention.”
In addition to helping to relieve anxiety this homemade moisturizer ingredient has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that will help sooth irritated skin.
Lavender – This essential oil has been known to help promote relaxation and good sleep. In addition, it possesses anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce swelling, redness, and itchiness.
In fact, when it comes to relaxation, this is probably the best homemade moisturizer recipe around. Tip: You can maximize your relaxation by taking a shower (or bath) with this homemade lavender body scrub first and then applying some of this homemade body moisturizer.
See, this homemade moisturizer has a lot to offer!
You can make this homemade skin moisturizer even more refreshing by leaving it in the fridge during the summer and applying it after coming in from the summer sun. Trust me, it’s nice and cool and a great way to grab a few moments of relaxation.
1. Place beeswax, coconut oil, and Shea butter in a small saucepan; heat on medium-low, stirring frequently, until completely melted.
2. Remove from heat and place in the refrigerator until the top surface is gelled over but not hardened.
Note: This should be approximately 10 minutes.
3. Remove from the fridge and either whisk briskly by hand or place in the bowl of a hand or stand mixer and mix well.
Note: I prefer the texture achieved by using my stand mixer.
4. Add in jojoba oil, lavender, and Roman chamomile and mix well.
5. Transfer to a small jar with a tight fitting lid and allow to harden.
Tip: You can speed this step up by placing the jar in the refrigerator.
Store your homemade moisturizer in a cool, dark place.
