Winter Dry Skin Options

Such a common complaint in the winter is dry skin! But those over-the-counter lotions (yes, including “natural” ones) can be laden with dangerous chemicals. I make a salve with beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and my favorite lavender essential oil. If I run out before I can make another batch, I will often use just straight coconut oil or cocoa butter. Here is another recipe–I haven’t made this one but the ingredients sound right on. I do recommend waiting to add any essential oil until after removing the mixture from heat. Let me know what you think!! (Oh, and coconut oil is great for a leave-in hair conditioner, too!)
