magic potion. (ok, lotion)

winter is especially hard this year (we say every year?) I think it’s part of getting old, the toll that the cold weather takes on your body and skin.

I have a simple, I mean completely MAGICAL remedy for even the driest-of-dry chapped skin, and the great thing is that the components of it will support healing as well.

magic lotion:

1/2 cup coconut oil (room temp, solid not melted)

1/4 cup chapped skin cream (I use Buckler’s)

12 drops doTerra melaleuca oil (anti-bacterial properties, promotes healing)

12 drops doTerra lavender oil (soothes, antioxidant protection)

10 drops doTerra frankincense oil (fights infections, heals, reduces inflammation)

5 drops doTerra cedarwood oil (antiseptic, tonic, astringent)

blend together until smooth (add more skin cream if the coconut oil is too soft) store in a covered container at room temperature.

enjoy!

oh! this recipe was originally formulated for a little fella with eczema and it worked wonderfully on his itchy little body. for information on purchasing doTerra oils, or for other inquiries click the links above; I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
