Olive Oil skin care recipes

Here are four more natural skin care recipes that I have collected that feature olive oil as the star. All of these items can be created using 5 simple ingrediants that you can locate in your kitchen: olive oil, honey, lemon juice, sugar, and lavender essential oil.

Quick Olive Oil Recipes


Moisturizing Lavender Bath Soak

¼ cup olive oil
5-8 drops of lavender essential oil

Fill bathtub with warm water. Place olive oil and lavender in bath and soak. The lavender will help you relax before bed.

Lemon Sugar Scrub

1/2 cup sugar (or salt, if preferred)
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Apply to hands or feet above the tub or sink. Scrub thoroughly for 2-3 minutes. When done scrubbing, rinse briefly with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Moisturizing and Skin Tightening Facial Mask

1 egg yolk
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey

Mix egg yolk, olive oil, and honey. Beat mixture until well blended. Apply to face and leave for 15 minutes or until dry. Remove with warm water, then rinse face with cool water.

Olive Oil Cuticle Soak

Small bowl
3 tbsp olive oil
1tbsp lemon juice

Mix oil and lemon juice. Warm olive oil mixture in bowl, careful not to make it too hot to touch. Let nails (especially cuticle) soak in mixture for 5-10 minutes. This should soften cuticles. I like to do this treatment prior to using the Lemon Sugar Scrub or prior to making a regular body scrub so that I don’t waste the ingredients.
