DIY Makeup Remover

As you know by now I love a good DIY anything, but especially a DIY beauty remedy.  Here is a great makeup remover.  It is also a great night time moisturizer and soothing skin cream.

1 Tbsp jojoba oil
7 Tbsp pure vegetable shortening
10 drops lavender oil

Warm oil and shortening until completely melted, and cool 5-10 min.  Add your essential oil and mix until it starts to thicken.  Pour into a cute little jar and in a few hours your potion will be ready to use.  To use get a soft cloth or use your fingers and apply 1/2 tsp to cover your entire face, neck and décolleté. follow with astringent or toner.  This will only keep for about 6-8 months so use it up. 
I use these cute little jars to store mine in right now, you can get them through amazon or IKEA

I also like these jars too, they are perfect because they are tinted blue to help your oils and ingredients last longer.
