How To Get "Unready" With Essential Oils

March 08, 2017

A night out can mean dancing till dawn or swooning over candlelight. Getting ready typically involves mascara, lipstick and maybe a little blush. Hours are spent picking out what to wear and trying different hairstyles. The beginning of a night out is filled with expectations but it’s the end of the night that may have a lasting effect.  

After a night on the town, you may feel tempted to crash into bed but taking a few extra minutes to get “unready” will keep your skin healthy and fresh. Instead of using harsh chemicals to cleanse your skin, we’ve created a step-by-step guide to getting “unready” with essential oils.

    Hi Ellen! Yes, the shea butter must first be melted. You might try this recipe, except change the essential oils to 5 drops Yuzu, remove Key Lime and replace it with 4 drops Lavender, and 1 drop Jasmine:

    Also, do you have a daytime mixture for dry, aging skin?

    I bought all my ingredients to make the Luxury nighttime moisturizer, but I have a question about the shea butter being a solid. Do you need to melt that in order to mix?

    Hi Liz! Yes, this moisturizer is liquid-like in consistency. If you prefer a thicker moisturizer, we recommend reducing the Argan and adding more shea butter.

    I made the luxury night moisturizer and doubled the recipe, Is it suppose to be a more runny/liquid texture? I really love this moisturizer. I guess I was questioning the 1/3 cup of Argan.
