We use this basic recipe for creating our body butters for home use. A body butter combines rich, moisturizing natural plant “butters” and oils with your favorite essential oil. These easy-to-make skin luxuries provide natural, concentrated, easy-to-use skin solutions you can use daily. Essential oils can enhance any body butter recipe, leaving your skin with a wonderful, subtle scent while providing unique benefits. What do you use body butters for?
- Hand care: Use these butters every day without the greasy feeling some lotions leave.
- Dry patches: Massage into dry, flaky heels, elbows, or other problem areas.
- Cuticles: Work into each finger and toe after soaking.
- Moisturizer: Warm butter in hands, and gently massage into neck, décolletage, face, and forehead.
- Shaving Balm: Warm and melt in hands, then massage into legs.
- Intense Hand/Foot Therapy: Apply thickly after soaking, then protect overnight with cotton gloves or socks.
Pure Vitamin E oil should contain 28,000 I.U. per fluid ounce. Any number less than this per ounce means the oil has been diluted.
Standing in a steamy bathroom at 3 AM, holding a coughing little baby. Croup and coughs can put parents on a real emotional roller-coaster. Most of us parents have suffered through miserable nights alternating between steam, cold air, and chest rubs. We were following the suggestions of our doctors, health websites, and most importantly, the advice of our parents and grandparents.
Parents have turned to medicated chest and cold rubs for many generations. In our home, we using comforting rubs that use whole essential oils rather than petroleum, chemicals, and fragrances.
The combination in the commercial ingredients – camphor, eucalyptus, and menthol – trick the brain by triggering the cold receptors in your nose and making you feel less congested. In fact, they can increase mucous production – making it feel like your sinuses are draining.
This is our first health-related blog post, and we spent quite a bit of time researching not only our subject, but how other bloggers are writing about essential oils and health topics in general. Just writing about alternative and natural health can be challenging, because there are a lot of rules from the FDA about what you can say and not say.
