I recently read an article on healthy-holistic living.com which talked about petroleum products, Vaseline in particular and why you should never use it on your body. Check out the article then whip up a batch of this DIY moisturizer!
It goes on shiny and slightly greasy, but do not fret! The moisturizer is absorbed quickly leaving your skin supple and hydrated. (I sound like a commercial)
- 1/2 cup shea butter
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 5 drops Young Living’s essential oil blend Peace & Calming
- Heat the shea butter and coconut oil until it becomes liquid.
- Stir in essential oil of choice
- Transfer to a clean, sterile glass jar and place in refrigerator until solid.
