Olive Oil has very soothing properties and is the perfect ingredient for a home-made night cream which will leave your face feeling soft, nourished and smooth when you wake. Gather together 1/2 a cup of Home Essentials Olive Oil, 3 drops of Home Essentials Lavender Oil, 3 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 Tbsp of water. Mix the olive oil and cider vinegar. Add water slowly until a smooth white/yellow cream forms. Add the Lavender Oil. You will need to give this a good shake before use every night as the mixture will settle.
