Yesterday I finally made the Pretty Legs Cream recipe I had found on Pinterest a while ago. To be honest, I’m not sure what took me so long to do it, I had the ingredients and the time. Maybe it was the horrible reaction my face had to coconut oil that made me hesitate at putting it on the rest of my body. But I want pretty legs so I’m going to give it a try!
The original pretty legs cream recipe I found was here. I didn’t have any witch hazel, suprising for me as I usually have a bottle handy. That is missing from my recipe. All the essential oils I used are Young Living oils available here.
Pretty Legs Cream
3/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup shea butter
1 tsp witch hazel (I didn’t have any)
1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
8 drops Juniper essential oil
8 drops Rosemary essential oil
8 drops Frankincense essential oil
8 drops Lavender essential oil
8 drops Grapefruit essential oil
8 drops Cedarwood essential oil
5 drops Carrot Seed essential oil
Add all ingredients to a stand mixer (use the whisk attachment, it works best). The coconut oil must be at room temperature…not too hard and brittle, but not too soft or melted. Whip the mixture several minutes until its light and fluffy.
I wish I had mixed this leg cream just a little longer as there are little bits of shea butter still there. No idea how long I mixed…was playing cowboys and pirates while trying to make this!
According to my essential oils reference book, carrot seed EO can be used for numerous skin conditions and grapefruit used for cellulite specifically. All the other EOs have properties that make them excellent for this type of cream.
This leg cream felt great applied after my shower, not greasy or heavy. I’m going to apply it to my abdomen as well to see if it might help tighten up some of the had-a-baby-over-fourty-belly!
