Healing Face Scrub Recipe

This is a great recipe if you are looking for a green facial scrub! Better yet it's easy to make and will last you a long time! You will need Frankincense and Lemon oils from Young Living (I highly suggest these oils as they are therapeutic grade). Any baking sods will do; the small granules will "buff" your skin and not tear it.
Directions (based on a 12oz jar):
1:In a GLASS bowl mix together enough baking soda and olive oil to make a thin paste that will fill up your container.
2:Add 30 drops each of your two oils and mix together well
3:Transfer your oil mixture to your GLASS container and scrub, scrub, scrub away! 
4:After rinsing leave the remaining oil on your skin.
Use twice a week at bedtime.
ATTENTION: you must use GLASS when using lemon as the oil is so strong in eating away petrochemicals it will eat the plastic of other jars.
Benefits of the ingredients for your skin:
Olive Oil:
Unrefined olive oil is full of inflammation-inhibiting antioxidants, which means it will help relieve skin conditions such as eczema. But among those antioxidants is one called squalene, an antioxidant known for its skin health benefits as well as its cancer-fighting properties. The antioxidants in olive oil help repair skin damage, soothe and relieve chapped, itchy and cracked skin and help rebuild the skin's moisture barrier to prevent further moisture loss from occurring -- and as a bonus those antioxidants will also reduce damage that leads to wrinkles and discoloration.
Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks. Frankincense has an approximate ORAC of 6,125 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
tones and lifts skin, heals and protects skin (against  boils, wounds, acne and other skin maladies), fades and heals scars
promotes regeneration of healthy cells and keeps existing cells and tissues health
eliminates germs (either by burning resin or applying oil topically)
Frankincense Oil promotes regeneration of healthy cells and also keeps the existing cells and tissues healthy. When you combine this aspect of frankincense oil with its powerful astringent capabilities, you have a potent anti-aging quality that frankincense oil is often used for. It can help you to eliminate sun spots, remove micro-wrinkles around the eyes and cheeks, and generally tone and tighten skin all over your body, while simultaneously replacing old or dying cells with new, healthy ones!
Lemon Oil:
Lemon oil improves immune function, promotes white blood cell formation, improves circulation, clears the mind, and tones the skin. Lemon oil is anti-infectious, antibacterial (especially with spores), antiviral, antiseptic, and a disinfectant. May aid in the prevention of cancer.
Lemon oil deploys antiseptic effects on fresh minor infections of the skin, including acne. Avoid going into the sun immediately after using lemon oil on the skin as burning and itching may occur. When the skin becomes oily, lemon oil provides a natural tonifier, balancing and rejuvenating the skin when used properly. You can place a drop of lemon essential oil on oily skin or blemishes to help balance oil glands and minimize oil production.
