I developed this homemade skin cream based on two of our favorite soothing skin cream recipes. The pure coconut oil was too strong for Bug’s skin, so we cut it with shea butter. It’s perfect for Bug (and her cousins) so I hope you or your kids love it, too!
We just rub the cream on our chapped winter skin to sooth the rough patches. It’s awesome. The lavender and melrose are both helpful for skin. Lavender is soothing and nourishing, while Melrose blend can support the skin’s appearance.
Soothing Skin Cream
Rub over skin twice daily.
Don’t have a stand mixer? No problem! Add coconut oil and shea butter to a glass jar. Bring a pan of water to a boil and set jar in it. Stir frequently to melt oils. Let it cool a bit and stir in essential oils. Let cool before use.
