Botanical and plant derived concoctions and oils have been used for thousands of years to nourish and nurture the skin. Plants offer us their remarkable, nutritive qualities that imbue the skin with health, immunity and vitality. Plant based skincare is safer and less reactive than chemically made creams, and can also be made from simple ingredients found in your own back garden.
Below is a recipe I have made from the lovely plants and flowers that I cultivated and distilled in my own garden, back when I lived in Australia. As a herbalist and aromatherapist, I have always enjoyed making my own DIY skincare, which later lead to the start my own skincare and essential oil company, Omlicious Botanicals™. Luckily, you don't need to be either of these to make this simple yet affective skincare oil. Below, I offer you a quick recipe to get glowy skin in no time!
