I truly believe that the best way to take care of your skin and your body is naturally. When I turned 50, I decided it was time to change my lifestyle and what I put in and on my body. I searched everywhere for a lotion that made my skin feel amazing and kept my dry skin moisturized all day long as well as being natural. Eventually I realized that if I was going to find that perfect lotion I was going to have to make it myself.
The Redneck Princess Lotion recipe has been used by myself and my friends and family for a little over a two years now. I have made it my mission to create a lotion that soaks into your skin and yet keeps your skin feeling lush and amazing all day long.
Redneck Princess Bodycare lotion’s ingredients are Water, Grape Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Emulsifying wax and essential oils and in a very small amount (.05% per volume of lotion) Optiphen-Plus which is a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative (Phenoxyethanol and Caprylyl Glycol). This is an essential ingredient to keep the lotion from spoiling and helps to keep nasty bacteria at bay. Nobody likes bacteria.

Useful information about the products we use to make our Redneck Princess Lotion:
1. Treats Acne
Grapeseed oil contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are great for stopping acne. The oil also contains linoleic acid, which promotes skin health.
2. Tightens Skin
Grapeseed oil has astringent qualities that help tighten skin and close up the pores, helping you avoid clogging that leads to pimples and problem skin. Oily skin especially will benefit from this.
3. Relieves Dark Circles under Eyes
Dark circles are a problem for many adults. I have fought with this myself my whole life. Most products that claim to help actually have harsh chemicals (which in the long run, we all know is a bad thing). The Grapeseed oil in our facial cream, applied daily for a few weeks, can relieve the dark circles naturally.
Grapeseed oil is a very light oil and can be used by those with sensitive skin. It also works as an excellent moisturizer that will not clog your pores. The oil can also help hasten healing of minor abrasions or pimples.
5. Fights Aging
Fine lines and wrinkles can be lessened with a daily application of grapeseed oil. The elasticity of the skin will be improved, making the lines of an aging face less pronounced.
1. Contains Beneficial Fatty Acids
Coconut oil contains Capric /Caprylic/Lauric acid: These fatty acids have strong disinfectant and antimicrobial properties. As a result, when applied on the skin, coconut oil protects from microbial infections that can get into open wounds or even enter the body through the pores.
2. Vitamin E!! 100 grams of coconut oil has about 0.1 mg of vitamin E, enhancing it skin-nourishing properties. It’s a double bonus!!
3. Anti aging Properties
Obviously we take this whenever we can get it!!
4. Helps Rejuvenate and Repair Skin
Coconut oil is rich in many proteins. Proteins help to keep your skin healthy and rejuvenated, as well as contributing to cellular health and tissue repair, and a wide range of other essential activities within the body. For any damaged cells on or near the skin, a healthy of flow of proteins guarantees their replacement at a normal rate, whereas people with protein-deficient diets heal slower and often develop more obvious scars due to the extended healing time.
5. Treats Many Common Skin Conditions
Coconut oil also helps in treating skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. It is an amazing oil with many beneficial properties and that is why we chose to use it as one of our main ingredients in our fabulous lotion!!
1. It is antimicrobial
Lavender water can help heal fungal or bacterial skin irritants.
2. Calms and soothes the skin
Lavender relieves tension, stress and in inflammation, all of which are responsible for causing skin aging. It also boosts the circulatory system, increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells. This results in lessening the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.
3. Healing Properties
The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of lavender make it beneficial for healing burns as well as any scarring caused by them. Lavender stimulates cell formation which reduces scarring and enables the burns to heal much more quickly. Lavender will also act as a pain reliever, thanks to its antiseptic action.
4. Combats blemishes and helps sooth Eczema
Lavender will help your skin stay smooth soft and blemish free. It relieves itching and decongests the irritated patches of skin by adding moisture, speeding up the healing process. Regular usage of this oil lessens eczema outbreaks significantly.
5. Antioxidant for your skin
Which keeps skin healthy and supple, plus regular use of lavender can delay aging.
Essential Oil Benefits:
1. Lavender Essential Oil:
Lavender essential oil is one of my favorites — it smells amazing, helps you relax and de-stress is great for the skin. It helps regenerate skin cells so it is fabulous for mature skin, sun spots, and scarring. It is a great oil for all skin types and needs.
2. Patchouli Essential Oil:
Patchouli essential oil is particularly beneficial to aging skin. It promotes new cell growth and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Yay!! It also has antiseptic, antifungal, and antibacterial properties, which helps heal skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. And mixed properly with other great oils, this is my go to fragrance right now!!
3. Tea Tree Essential Oil:
Tea tree essential oil is a popular essential oil for acne-prone skin. Its antibacterial properties help fight off acne-causing bacteria. It also helps to regulate oil production, which can decrease the severity and frequency of breakouts.
4. Geranium Essential Oil:
Geranium essential oil helps regulate oil production and reduces acne breakouts. It also helps improve skin elasticity and tighten skin, reducing wrinkles, again…yay! It helps promotes blood circulation where it is applied, helping to heal bruises, broken capillaries, burns, cuts, dermatitis, eczema, ringworm, and other skin conditions. It pretty nearly a perfect oil!
5. Lemongrass Essential Oil:
Lemongrass essential oil is a wonderful natural astringent and antibacterial. As such, it is extremely beneficial to those with oily and acne-prone complexions. It also tones and will help to reduce the appearance of large pores. It will also help relieve stress and improve concentration and the fragrance is absolutely heavenly!!
Note: Lemongrass can cause photo-toxicity (sun sensitivity) in people with sensitive skin.
