Have you ever heard of a Frozen Facial? While researching recipes for the June box I came across the idea of Frozen Facials. Basically, a Frozen Facial is a facial blend that is frozen when applied to the face. The cold helps shrink pores to trap moisture and reduces inflammation in the skin.
With these amazing properties, we decided to pair a frozen facial with essential oils, aloe vera, and hibiscus flowers for a facial formulated to help the skin recover from sun damage.
What I Love About This Recipe
Aloe vera is cooling and cell regenerative, Grapefruit and Palmarosa Essential Oils promote healthy skin, and Hibiscus flowers are rich in antioxidants, revive skin, exfoliate, prevent aging, tone, firm, and control oils in the skin. What’s not to love about this recipe?
What’s in the Natural Frozen Facial Recipe?
Liquid Aloe Vera
Liquid Aloe Vera is super easy to work with and has great skin benefits! Aloe is very commonly found in face masks and washes.
Grapefruit Essential Oil
Grapefruit Essential Oil is known for its skincare benefits and cleans naturally!* It has a fresh, sweet citrus scent that just expresses freshness!
Palmarosa Essential Oil
Palmarosa Essential Oil also is great for your skin! It can also reduce swelling* which may happen occasionally! It has a sharp, spicy, floral aroma that is similar to a rose!
Water is used for the base of this recipe and also allows for the oils to fully dilute and be safe to apply to your skin!
Dried Hibiscus Flowers
Dried Hibiscus Flowers have numerous benefits! They exfoliate, control the oils in your skin, and revive your skin overall.
Ice Cube Tray
An ice cube tray is used to keep this recipe in tact! Considering you need to keep this recipe frozen, an ice cube tray makes perfect sense. 😉
Things to Remember When Using This Recipe
Grapefruit Essential Oil may cause skin irritation, especially if the oil is older and oxidized. Use in low dilution when applying to the skin, such as in baths or massage oils. Check out this handy dilution chart we created for topical use.
This recipe is safe to use with children 2+.
This essential oil has phototoxic qualities, so use caution before applying it to the skin on days you plan to head outdoors as it may make you more susceptible to sunburn.
Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post.
