Is your skin dry this winter? Do you get shocked every time you touch something? Does your hair stand out like a freaky halo when you try to brush it? Then read up: this might be a solution to all three.
I meant to try it but never got around to it until this year. I'm here to tell you, it's awesome. And I found a few tricks that I want to pass on.
First, it doesn't take much! A tiny squirt will easily moisturize both hands.
Second, I didn't want to go around smelling like olive oil, so I added a tiny bit of lavender oil to my little bottle. I love the scent of lavender and it masks the olive oil beautifully. I have to say though that the olive oil aroma really was very minimal, and not noticeable.
Three: you need only 3 things to make this awesome remedy: olive oil, lavender oil, and a small spray bottle. The oil won't come out of my bottle in a spray; it's more like little drops but that works fine for my needs.
Since using the olive oil, I have had zero problems with static electricity shocking me at every turn. I hate that! A little olive oil rubbed into my hands seems to have cured that little surprise of nature.
I also use it in my hair. Again, it doesn't take much! I squirt out just a wee little bit, usually one squirt, rub it into my hands, then run my hands through my hair. Instant tameness. If my hair still seems too dry, I use a little more. But it takes a miniscule amount. My hair is not greasy and it smells like lavender. Mmmmm.
The olive oil as a makeup remover trick works well too. You might want to use a little more for this purpose. It's a wonderful moisturizer. Rub on the oil, wipe off with cotton balls or tissues, then wash with a gentle facial soap.
Most makeup removers and body lotions are based on some kind of oil anyway; this just goes straight to the source, and no added chemicals. Give it a try--I bet you'll like the results as much as I do.
