Got dry skin? Nourish it with this DIY Rescue Skin Salve.
Why do I call it my rescue salve? Because it helps to moisturize and nourish skin – face, body, even lips – that needs a little help. Ever feel like you need something extra to rescue your skin? That’s this salve recipe.
It’s made with coconut oil to naturally moisturize and Lavender essential oil to soothe skin.
This DIY Rescue Skin Salve Recipe works really well, but it can also be messy on the go. Coconut oil will melt easily if the weather is warm. I suggest storing this in the bathroom to use at home – morning and night.
This is also great for kids. I like to keep it on hand when I’m traveling or when I’m doing winter sports and need extra moisturizing.
- 4-5 drops Lavender essential oil (buy it HERE)
- 2 tbsp organic extra-virgin coconut oil
- Lip balm container
- Melt coconut oil in a stainless steel pan on very low heat.
- Once melted, remove from heat and add Lavender oil.
- Pour liquid into a lip balm container.
If your coconut oil is already melted, there's no need to heat it. Just add Lavender oil and store in a container.
