This page is about a Vanilla Cream Face Cream. Did you know that the aroma of vanilla can elevate your mood?

Many of the homemade facials and oil mixtures I make have vanilla for it's wonderful aroma. Vanilla actually comes from a seed bearing orchid plant, did you know that? The aroma is very relaxing to me, so when I add it to a facial mix and use that mix I feel particularly pampered and rested.

That's an uncommon feeling for me on most days, as I am sure it is on most of your days too. We are so busy, what with work, family, hobbies, chores, pets, and everything else that keeps us busy from morning to night. That's why I started giving myself facials and taking oil baths. I figured I may as well take care of my skin at home, since I did not have the time to hit the spa or the salon whenever I wanted a treatment.

Not that it's a bad life by any means. I wouldn't trade it for the world, but that doesn't mean it's not time consuming and I don't have all the time I'd like to spend on pampering myself, but a walk in the park with my kids wins out everytime!

I found that making homemade facials and skin oils to be fun as well as extremely beneficial to my skin. I can add my favorite aromas, oils, spices, and essential oils, to create a personalized face lotion just for me. All my favorites, mixed together, and they help my skin stay healthy.
