Beauty products these days can be really expensive, not to mention full of nasty chemicals. This holiday season why not try making your own using Argan oil? Trust me you’ll end up with a much more powerful product that is way more natural, and to top it all you’ll save loads of money!

Argan oil has become a kind of synonym for beauty care and health, to women all around the world and it has found its place known as ‘liquid gold’ withi n Hollywood's beauty industry. Beauty conscious celebrities like Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie (to name but a few) know that this rare plant oil works like heaven on your skin and hair Argan oil will be sure to transform your nails from brittle to strong; your hair from dull to shiny and your skin from blotchy to clear and beautiful. Mixing it with essential oils and other natural wonders make great beauty products for yourself. Not only will they work like a charm and leave you feeling confident and beautiful, but they will also make thoughtful gifts for friends and family this Christmas. If you don’t believe me, read on and try out these three easy home recipes. And don’t forget to make extra, because this will be the most authentic gift your loved ones have ever received for an extra special Christmas .

Ok so let’s start with cuticle and brittle nail issues. Most people don’t realize that many cuticle creams that you find in stores, contain so many chemicals that they are actually harmful to your nails. But not pure Argan oil, which is my absolute favorite becau se it absorbs so quickly without making everything like my face and clothes super greasy. And the fact is if your cuticles are not kept well moisturized, then they will be prone to break, crack and infect. Try out this Cuticle Cream Ointment which you can keep in your bathroom, in your kitchen, at your desk to apply on both your cuticles and brittle nails throughout the day.

If you don’t have a double boiler you can improvise by placing a small pot of water on the stovetop over medium heat. In a second pot, placed on the top of the first, combine 2 tablespoons Argan oil, 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil, 1 and a half tablespoons beeswax pellets and 2 tablespoons shea butter. Stir occasionally and allow to melt slowly. When fully melted, remove from heat and stir in 20 drops of lavender essential oil, 10 drops of tea tree essential oil and 10 drops of lemon essential oil. Then quickly pour this into 1/2 oz tins, this will fill about 5 tins. Wait until completely cooled down to place on lids, then design your labels and enjoy. Homemade cuticle cream would make a personal gift that any woman would absolutely love to receive.

Are you battling with dry and dull hair? Do you blow dry every single day? Using Argan oil as a deep conditioner can help everyone get back a head of shiny vibrant hair. In a small mason jar combine: 4 teaspoons of Argan oil, 2 teaspoons Epsom salt, 2 teaspoons honey, 4 teaspoons coconut oil, 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar, 3 drops peppermint essential oil and mix well. Design your label to include directions:

To use, shake well, and apply the conditioner especially to the damaged ends of your hair, then wrap your hair in a warm towel. After 30 minutes, rinse your hair thoroughly. If you love this product consider making several batches to give to your friends this Christmas, use your imagination decorating your mason jars and have fun!

Create your own Argan oil facial serum to keep your face hydrated this Christmas. Simply mix 15 drops of frankincense essential oil and 15 drops lavender essential oil in 2 oz of Argan oil. Mix well by shaking and keep in a dark amber glass bottle with an eyedropper. You’ll need four drops for your face, once or twice a day. You can use and appreciate this oil or give it away to your friends, or even better do both! Either way you will feel like gold this festive season. Merry Christmas!

Testimonials

"Good value. I use the Lavender oil at my office with reeds to create a lovely smelling work space, instead of those nasty "fragrance oil plug-ins" that can be loaded with hundreds of toxic chemicals. Co-workers like to come into my closed space because of how it smells."
