 Moisturizers are our skins best friend

Not only do moisturizers nourish our skin and help us maintain our youthful appearance, but they also put a barrier between us and  a toxic environment  full of pollutants,toxins  and age accelerating environmental factors.  Most commercial lotions and moisturizers have toxic chemicals in them and very little of the 'good stuff" that is advertised. When we make our own skincare we know exactly what we are putting on our body.

We will be using a lot of essential oils in our skincare my favorite ones to use are from Plant Therapy. I have been using essential oils now for about 30 years and I have tried many different brands over the years. When it comes to oils there is a huge difference in quality, you want to make sure that you get 100% pure. I have tried Doterra, young living etc.. both of those are good brands, however Plant Therapy is just as good and at a fraction of the price! Now there are times that I want a certain oil that Plant therapy does not carry and in that instance I usually go with Doterra or YL but I always check Plant Therapy first because of the affordability - I use tons of oils and I simply could not afford to use the amount I do if it wasn't for Plant Therapy.
