This sounds great and we know that olive oil and witch hazel are good,got to raid the fridge for the ingreds.I have extremly dry skin so sounds like this would be good. ..I must admotr I have never used EVOO on my skin but use it for cooking all the time ... .
I have used the olive oil on my hair when I was younger. My hair is so thick, it took several washes to get it out. Then I would damage my hair again with the iron (the one you use for your clothes).LOL That was the thing in the 70's long straight hair. Mine was wavy. It was long and LOLOLOL.....you will roll on the floor when I tell you this. I would use at least 2 nibblets corn cans for the top of my hair and just wrap the rest around my head with the long bobby pins. LOL I have pictures of this.
Back to the face, can you use this for sensitive skin???? I have to use everything for sensitive skin. I use the oil of olay with aloe cleaners and sunscreen. I have combination skin. Oily and dry patches. I don't use makeup daily. I use loose powder only and eye makeup. I have noticed a big change since I quit using sugar and products with yeast in them. My face has cleared up alot.
I also use the olive oil for cooking and salads.
I have combination /sensitive skin too. The EVOO should not bother it. The Lemon Juice may. I would adjust the ratio of witch hazel to lemon juice. Thats the great thing about kitchen beauty is you can personalize it CHEAP. I also use the EVOO on my legs after I shave.It may feel oily for a few minutes but it soaks in really nice. You can also add essential oils to the EVOO to give it a fragrance. Just make sure you test it for allergies before you put it all over your face and body. Another really good oil for body and bath is grape seed oil, it mixes well with essential oils also.
For yard work hands I work about a tablespoon of evoo and a bit of table salt into my hands an scrub. Rinse and dry. Use more EVOO after if needed.
I get 'yard work hands' all the time especially in the winter. I'll try that recipe. It sounds good.
My mum used to put oil on her hands at night, then sleep in a pair of gloves so as not to get oil on everything. She swore by it to keep her hands soft. My dad used to laugh. He said it was like "going to bed with the Queen of England" LOL!!
Why be a princess when you can be the queen!
