Simple Sunday: Dry Skin Solution...

Sunday is slowly winding down, as is the fall season. With the changes in weather, many of us may find that our skin is becoming extremely dry. Well, for today's Simple Sunday, I'd like to share a skin treat that is sure to combat winter's drying effects. The whipped Lemon Coconut Shea Butter Skin Treat  that I'm going to share with you today is great for keeping skin and hair full of moisture.

Just because the days are becoming shorter and we are losing sunlight, doesn't mean our skin and hair have to lose their glow!

*****Lemon Coconut Shea Butter Skin Treat *****


What you will need:
40 drops- lemon essential oil , for a yummy scent
1/4 cup coconut oil, for moisture                      1/8cup vegetable glycerin, for moisture
8 oz of raw Shea butter, for moisture
Hand mixer
Bowl

Instructions:

  • In a mixing bowl, blend Shea butter and coconut oil until creamy. 
  • Add lemon oil. Whip again. (about 30 seconds)
  • Add vegetable glycerin
  • Whip your mixture until it has the same consistency as frosting. (yum, but don't eat it!) 

Once you have blended your skin treat you can simply place the bulk of your whip back into the original Shea butter container. Keep in mind, it won't all fit as you have added oils, and air (via whipping) You can use any airtight container that you have laying around for storage. I had left over containers from  November Natural's Night. I placed the overflow in to those containers.


While packaging up my Lemon Coconut Shea Butter Treat, a brilliant thought came over me. (That doesn't happen often people!) I can package this up and give it away as part of x-mas gifts! SPOILER ALERT!! hahahahah.

Anywho, I hope this skin recipe works wonders for you! Let me know. While you're at it, why don't you share what your current favorite winter skin remedies are!


That's my 2 cents!
