So, my kids all tend to have some dry and itchy patches during the winter and occationally during the summer. I have a great skin balm I make for when there seem to be real issues, but this is my go to for maintenance and it is SUPER easy to make! Please note that most skin conditions are related to diet (gluten, dairy, or other sensitivites), but using essential oils can help hydrate and nourish the skin.
1 cup extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil
Frankincense essential oil
Lavender essential oil
Melrose essential oil
Germanium essential oil (this one is optional)
Spoon (I use a wooden spoon)
Scoop out 1 cup coconut oil
Place into the bowl
Add 12 drops lavender, 8 drops frankincense, 6 drops melrose, and 6 drops geranium.
Mix together thoroughly
Add to container
Store and use as needed
Please note that I use this for when we are maintaining healthy skin and it is concentrated with oils. For everyday hydration I tend to use the Lavender Hand & Body Lotion on myself and my kiddo that has less irritated skin. This can also be used as a diaper cream, lip balm, or even an anti-chaffing rub if you are trying to make minimal products!
