Fall reminds me that it's important to allow myself a little love. But we all need that whether it's going to be eighty-five degrees tomorrow or fifty. Luckily, the earth gives back all year.
So whether you're lacing up your boots too early or dreading that winter skin or basking in the warm temperatures of the Bahamas (or Texas), curl up with this moisturizer and a good book while those healing oils soak into your body, mind and soul.
1. Boil 2/3 cups of water. Remove from heat & allow to cool down to a medium heat.
2. Melt Shea butter & Beeswax in a double boiler. Once this has melted, add your oil of choice. Stir in & allow the mixture to completely melt. Remove from boiler & allow for the mixture to cool to a medium heat.
3. Combine 2/3 cups of hot water & oil mixture. Add 2-3 drops of essential oil for their aromatherapy abilities and other healing properties. Blend ingredients with an immersion blender for 20 seconds at the bottom of the bowl until it reaches a smooth lotion-like texture. Slowly raise the blender to mix all of the ingredients.
4. Blend your lotion every 5-7 minutes until it reaches room temperature. This ensures that the oils do not separate later on. If that does happen though, do not fear. Simply melt the mixture down again and re-blend it.
Fall Tip: If you want your moisturizer to smell extra fall-like while protecting your immune system from the cold air, try using a few drops of Young Living's Thieves essential oil.
