Summer Dry Skin : DIY Recipe

With Summer heat my hubby dry skin always flares up. Here’s my DIY recipe to help him with that problem.

Body Cream:

  • 3 tablespoons beeswax pellets
  • ¼ cup  coconut oil
  • ½ cup  avocado oil (sweet almond, olive or jojoba make great choices, too)
  • 2 tablespoons  shea butter or Coca butter
  • optional: 20 drops essential oil of choice 
  1. Add a few inches of water to a skillet and place on your stove at medium low heat.
  2. Place a glass jar in the water and add your beeswax to the jar. Allow the beeswax to melt – this takes 15 or more minutes. Pour liquid into jars of choice small size this recipe fills 2 jars) and place on the counter for a few hours to harden.

Lotion bars

  • 14 oz jar of coconut oil
  • Essential oil
  • Mold ( candy molds or plastic ice trays)
  • A sheet pan larger than the mold.

Instructions

  1. Place jar of coconut oil in a bowl or sink of warm water. (Coconut oil doesn’t need to be very warm to melt.
  2. While coconut is melting, place the mold on a sheet pan to make moving it easy without spilling.
  3. After oil is melted, add about 30 drops of the essential oil of your choosing. Place lid back on and shake to combine.
  4. Pour oil into the mold. Be careful not to fill them completely full. Place the sheet pan with the mold on it in the refrigerator or freezer. I put mine in the garage in the winter.
  5. Once hardened, pop them out and store in a zip top bag in the bathroom.

COOLING FACE AND BODY MIST

Makes approximately 3/4 cups.

Use this mist whenever you need a little cooling off. Peppermint can be very refreshing. Incorporating green tea into this blend can help to reduce redness.

Ingredients

• 3/4 cups (6 oz) distilled or purified water
• 1 Tbsp. dried peppermint leaf ( from my garden)
• 1/2 tsp.  Green Tea leaf
• 1 drop peppermint oil l (optional)


1. Pour boiling water over the peppermint and green sencha tea leaves and infuse until cool.
2. Strain and pour liquid into a spray bottle.
3. Add the essential oil (if using) and shake to combine all ingredients.
4. Store in the refrigerator and use within 1 week.

Thanks for stopping bye ! Hope you have a great day!! Lisa
