Having a dry Skin Emergency this winter? Who else has been dealing with super dry and cracked hands like me? Well, I have a DIY solution for ya: a dry skin Healing Salve. The great thing is, this salve is so easy and quick to make.
You will need:
2 oz. tin containers (I was able to make 3 with this recipe) or any other type of jar.
Melt in a double boiler:
3 TBS beeswax pellets
3 TBS shea butter
3 TBS coconut oil
3 TBS olive oil
**Note: You can substitute the above oils with the ones you prefer: avocado, jojoba, almond, etc.
Put 30 drops of essential oils in any combination into your melted ingredients. I personally did 10 drops Frank, 10 drops Myrrh, 5 drops Lavender, 5 drops Cedarwood. I listed some essential oils below that are good for healing and dry skin.
Carrot Seed, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Geranium, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, Lavender, Patchouli, Myrrh, Tea Tree.
Let the salve cool. Label your tops while you wait. Take a little bit of the salve and massage into your hands, elbows, or other dry skin areas. Carry one in your purse, leave one by your nightstand, leave one by the sink. Your skin will thank you.

+Thieves EO: Thieves® essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma.

+Thieves 1oz Spray: THIS this my friends is your friend. In our home, we use this as a throat spray, we also use it as a backup to the hand purifier. The thieves EO has amazing properties in it to use on the throat in the fall.
