Keep your skin soft this winter!

olive oilIf you handle lots of fabrics or work with your hands a lot, sometimes your hands get dry. With the cold weather and dry indoor air that’s right around the corner, you want to keep your skin from drying out.  This recipe for lotion is all natural, organic and helps your skin heal, especially if you have eczema.

1 cup of Shea Butter – I buy this brand from amazon.com
1/2 cup of Coconut Oil (see photo for type I use)
1/2 cup of Olive Oil (see photo for type I use)

Vitamin E and Essential Oils of your choice.  I only use Young Living Essential Oils.Product shots fro new catalog at YL farm in Mona

Melt shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler. Remove from the heat and let it cool. After it is cool, add olive oil and any other essential oils. I use 30 drops of Lavender and sometimes add vitamin E drops.

Put the whole bowl into the refrigerator to start to harden.  Once it is harden on the edges, remove and whip until light and fluffy.  I use a Kitchen Aid stand mixer with the whisk beater and beat it until fluffy.

Store them in small mason jars or any decorative jars of your choice.
