We all want flawless, buttery skin but the means to get there can sometimes be intimidating. Lasers, peels and chemicals are a no-go for many natural aficionados. We can have smooth skin and how we get there is entirely up to us.
Hazelnut is a carrier oil that actively promotes the skin’s natural luster while it moisturizes and refreshes. Teeming with powerful antioxidants, Hazelnut makes a lovely addition to body butters to assist in pampering oneself at the end of a hard week. It also can strengthen nails and hair so add it to your next manicure and blowout to lengthen the time they last.
Hazelnut is non-greasy with only a slight hint of nuttiness and is often used by massage therapists because of its quick absorption.
Carrier oils come in a 4 oz glass bottle with a pump.

Buttery Soft Coffee Shop Hand Scrub:
3 oz PET jar
2 oz white sugar
1 oz Hazelnut Oil
12 drops Cocoa Vanilla Synergy Blend
6 drops Coffee Essential Oil
Add the Hazelnut Oil to the 3 oz PET jar and then add the essential oils. Stir. Add the 2 oz of white sugar and mix thoroughly to incorporate the carrier and EO mixture evenly throughout the sugar. To use, use a spoon to remove the sugar scrub from the jar and vigorously scrub your hands over your sink. Once finished, rinse hands under warm water and pat dry. Once dry, massage the remaining oil on your hands into your skin. Enjoy the smooth and buttery texture of your exfoliated and moisturized hands!
NOTE: Please keep the hand scrub away from water contamination and always use a clean spoon to remove the scrub from the jar. It would be necessary to preserve the scrub if you are going to expose it to water.
