It’s that time of year when skin turns DRY. At least mine does. It doesn’t help that I’m always washing dishes, washing my hands, washing dishes, washing dishes, washing….dishes 🙂 I get little cuts on my hands and they hurt! Plus they make my hands look like I’m 115 years old. So I love any pampering that this winter skin can soak up!
This recipe makes a soothing, creamy body butter that you can use on hands, feet, elbows, kids, or anywhere that needs a little more moisture!
The coconut oil in this recipe combined with the cocoa powder will make a rich, buttery cream thick enough to moisturize all your cracks and dryness, (plus…I mean it smells like chocolate!) and yet still be spreadable and rich.
If you haven’t smelled Young Living’s Stress Away blend that this recipe calls for, you’re in for a treat. It’s a blend of copaiba, lime, cedar wood, vanilla, ocotea and lavender oils. It’s soothing, calming and relaxing. It’s great for anytime you need a little peace & quiet on demand! The peppermint oil that this recipe calls for has a cooling effect on skin and also soothes tired and worn muscles.
You can substitute other essential oils but this blend really is a special one!
