Floral Body Oil

With chilly weather comes drier skin. This is a light and easily absorbed body oil, but still moisturizing and healing to any patches of chapped skin. The scent is a nice floral reminder of spring! For extra healing, especially for very chapped skin or eczema, try infusing your oil first. Chamomile, lavender, calendula, and comfrey are all very restorative options.

3 drops carrot seed essential oil

1/4 tsp Vitamin E oil

Add all ingredients to sterilized glass bottle, using a sterilized funnel if necessary. Close tightly and shake well. Give it another shake before application.
