Do you ever have those days, or weeks, when everything you need finishes? This just happened to me last week. I had a long to-do list, waiting for the weekend. Face cleanser, toner, lip balm, body oil and more. I also decided to make a neck and bust oil as I haven’t used it for a while.
I always had issues when it came to my neck, even though I love it really (I think it’s long and sexy :)) But for as long as I can remember I had those lines across my neck and looking at the necks of other girls my age, and seeing how flawless they were, well… I wanted a neck like that too. I started researching my options. I even found some laser treatment when I was about 19 but never went ahead with it. I was always more into natural ways of dealing with things. One thing I found out back then was that wheatgerm oil was really good. Unfortunately I had no access to wheatgerm oil all those years ago. Luckily, I do now.
What is so good about wheatgerm oil? It is nutrients and vitamins packed. It is readily absorbed by the skin and acts as a very good moisturiser. Wheatgerm oil is rich in vitamin E which fights free radicals and supports collagen formation. Because of its anti-aging properties it helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Now, you probably heard that a typical woman looks after her face but tends to leave out the neck from the daily care routine. That’s why you can notice the signs of aging on the neck faster. Not to mention that the skin on the neck is thinner than the skin on your face so it would be logical to look after it even more.
The recipe I will share with you today is perfect for your neck. Apply it daily, best in the evening so the skin has all night to take in all the goodies. The ingredients you need are: wheatgerm oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, rosehip oil and the following essential oils: sweet orange, ylang ylang, geranium and patchouli. You also need a 100 ml glass dropper bottle, a funnel and measuring spoons.
However this time I replaced half of the jojoba oil with rice bran oil (didn’t have enough of jojoba) and added a few drops of Coenzyme Q10 with vitamin E.
It’s simple (yet effective). Measure: 50 ml of wheatgerm oil, 20 ml of jojoba oil and 10 ml each of argan and rosehip oil. You also need 6 drops each: sweet orange, ylang ylang and patchouli essential oils and 9 drops of geranium.
Pour everything into the dropper bottle, screw the top on and shake. And it’s ready to use. You only need about 5 -6 drops each evening, plus another 5-6 if you’r e using it on your breasts as well.
Enjoy! Your neck will forever be grateful (and beautiful!)
