Hello everyone, Christina here, do you love the scent of flowers? Then you're going to love this recipe. I've combined coconut oil with some flowers from my garden to make a wonderful lotion that I'm going to show you here today. Now you can use any type of flower in your garden as long as you stick to rose petals and lilies, lilacs, things like that. So let me show you. So our main ingredient today is going to be flowers. So what I've done here is take some dried flowers from my garden and combine them with a cup of distilled water. I've steeped them over my burner on the stove for about 30 minutes and you notice they're done when you start to see the color being pulled from the petals and color actually being infused into the water. So I'm going to take just a bit of water, maybe a few tablespoons. If you want to strain the actual petals itself you can. If not, that's okay too. Now flowers are really wonderful because they not only infuse the fragrance into the mixture, they also add many antioxidant benefits as well. So, what I'm going to do next is combine about a teaspoon, two teaspoons depending on how thick you'd like your mixture. Organic coconut oil infuses really wonderful hydration as well as a glow into the skin. So what we're going to do is combine the mixture together for about a minute or so until we get the texture we desire. What we're going to do is combine a little bit of the mixture. It should be a little bit watery, almost like a texture like that. So we're just going to rub a bit of it into our body like so and with essential oils, this is going to take a few minutes to actually seep into the skin. Give it about five minutes and it will seep in. I hope you enjoyed this video, take care.
