How To Make Carrot Oil

How to make carrot oil

Carrot oil can be used for the skin or hair and getting a good one can be nerve-racking sometimes, it’s either expensive or you fear getting a fake one. I learnt how to make my own carrot oil and the transformation was so beautiful; the use of carrot oil brightened my skin and made it really soft, the key is to apply it when your skin is still wet before applying your lotion 🌚 I have never gone back to buying from a store ever since. Keep reading as I walk you through how to make your own carrot oil.

Supplies
• Hand Grater 
• Pot
• Mesh Strainer or Cheese Cloth
• Jar

Carrot Oil Ingredient
• Carrots
• Essential or Carrier Oils of your choice (In my case I use Vitamin E Oil and Johnson’s Baby Oil) 

Preparation 
1. Wash carrots and peel the skin off. Grate carrots with the use of hand grater.
2. Place the grated carrot in a pot and pour oil of your choice to cover the carrot.
3. Heat very slowly until colour changes from yellow to orange
4. Allow to cool then strain with a strainer, separate carrot solids and discard then store your oil in a jar. 

Benefits Of Carrot Oil 
It brightens and rejuvenates dull skin
• It smoothens skin 
• It makes the skin soft and supple
• It soothes sunburn on skin 
• It firms the skin 
I love that this oil is not heavy on the skin, it is suitable for dry, normal, sensitive and oily skin. 

Side Note: I do not use this oil on my face because I already use facial cream, oil and serums to avoid clogging my pore with too much products but there is an exception if you don’t use facial products, that way you balance out the oil on your face (for people with oily face)

I hope you have fun while trying it out, good luck.

Review: Virony Sanitary Pad

I used Virony for the first time yesterday and I ain't looking back. Few weeks ago, my friends told me about Virony pad which I was scared to get at first because of my fear of switching sanitary pads but the reviews and praises I got about it made me change my mind. Well, here I am too, dropping my praises about Virony. 
Product Name: Virony Smart Lady Pad

A New Chapter Of My Life

It's the first day of May and I want to say that I am really grateful about how good 2018 has been to me so far, being alive, my friends, the health of my family and I want to also use this opportunity to wish you all a very successful month full of accomplishments. 🍾

So y'all...... I got a new job with a popular radio station as a music editor and I'm really ecstatic. It's been a different experience, changing my environment, having the opportunity to meet new, smart people and celebrities, emphasis on "celebrities" this in particular has been wonderfuuuuul. 😎

It's one thing to get a job and its another to get a job you love! Me, I got both and everyday I am thankful to God for such grace and favour, it wasn't easy, I cried myself to sleep and went on my knees asking what I wasn't doing right and why my friends were getting jobs before me. Thank God it's over now and I look forward to making the most of this experience and milk every oppor…

Self Esteem and Learning to Love my Nose

There was little I loved about myself while growing up. I was 16 when I noticed I was very skinny, had a big nose and battling with bad acne and pimples. I was assured it was puberty hence the acne but I was worried about the nose; I hated it for a long time, it was big, flat and out of shape or so I thought. Back in secondary school I would pinch my nose for a long time, hopefully it would have a better shape. I had beautiful friends in school back then and I would spend most of my time pointing out what face feature I liked and wished I had.

During my university days, pouting was my saving grace. I would either pout or give a very big smile just to make my nose look smaller. I relied on people to give me a good validation about my looks and pictures which is really sad as I think about it now. I really feel sorry that we live in a world where there is a definition of a woman's beauty. For three years I have learnt to love my big nose, not because I was forced to or didn't h…
