My initial introduction to essential oils was to help my eldest daughter with her dry skin. It was suggested I help her from the inside out, so we changed our diet. I bought a healthy digestion oil blend and saw instant results.
Linalool is an additive in many skin care products and soaps. It exacerbates skin conditions. Check your labels!
We had to eliminate products with linalool and get natural personal care products.
My natural hand balm can help dry skin.
Essential Oils we’ve tried to help with dry skin: Cypress, Copaiba, Frankincense, Lavender, Myrrh, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Geranium
Melaleuca oil blend mixed with coconut oil was our best result for this time and place for our daughter.
Of course, I don’t recommend using all of these oils and products at once! Just start with one or a few and see what helps or smells great to you.
We recently made some hand balm with essential oils.
I made Tori a big jar of melaleuca hand balm since her hands are like sandpaper in our dry Utah winters. She feels special with her own jar of hand cream.
Melt in a mason jar in a pot of jar or double boiler:
Then mix in some vitamin E and essential oils before it goes back to a solid. I like my stand mixer to whip it good.
I used melaleuca, frankincense, and lavender but there are many essential oils with benefits for our skin!
You can also whip the melted carrier oils in a stand mixer for a fluffy texture. As they cool down, the lotion will retain the air and feel silky.
Eat your way to healthy skin!
We’ve tried limiting wheat and dairy because we’ve learned it can have negative effects on skin, but my husband and Tori don’t have skin issues with it. If they overdo it, their moods are affected.
