Beauty Recipe: Natural Skin Soothing Cream with Coconut Oil

Write for Health&Life Magazine and Website

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup unrefined organic coconut oil
  • ¼ cup organic shea butter
  • 2 or 3 drops of essential oil (optional)

Method:

  1. Place the Shea butter and coconut oil in a bowl over a bain-marie.
  2. Ensure the heat is low so that the oil and butter melt slowly (high heat can destroy the beneficial compounds in the oil)
  3. Once they have melted together, remove from the heat, stir, and allow to cool.
  4. Place in a sterile glass jar to store.
  5. If you want to include extra goodness, add a few drops of essential oil after the mixture has cooled a little and is still liquid. Lavender oil is relaxing and soothing, while lemon or tea tree oils are refreshing and uplifting. All three have antibacterial properties.
