Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils used in aromatherapy. Many use it for fungal infections, allergies, depression, insomnia, eczema, nausea, and menstrual cramps. It is purported to have anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The fragrance from the oils of the lavender plant is believed to help promote calmness and wellness. It is believed to help reduce stress, anxiety, and possibly even mild pain.
Frankincense Essential Oil: When inhaled, frankincense oil has been shown to reduce heart rate and high blood pressure. It has anti-anxiety and depression-reducing abilities. It can be used to prevent germs from forming on the skin or in your home. Frankincense is an antiseptic and disinfectant agent that has antimicrobial effects. It has the ability to eliminate cold and flu germs from the home and the body naturally. Research suggests that frankincense oil can be used to improve memory and learning functions. It has been used to help relieve: pain, cramps, constipation, headaches, anxiety, nausea, fatigue, and mood swings. It has a calming, grounding scent that can naturally help you to fall asleep.
Coconut oil is incredibly moisturizing and contains caprylic acid along with other compounds that provide strong antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Because it is made up of medium chain fatty acids it helps to reduce dryness and allow your skin to retain moisture. It provides a protective barrier, helping shield skin from environmental toxins, dirt and other icky stuff you’re faced with everyday. This oil has a soothing, calming effect and can help reduce temporary redness when it pops up. If you’re prone to irritations or sensitivity, coconut oil can help to alleviate any discomfort and provide soothing relief.
Cocoa Butter contains a high amount of fatty acids, which make it well-suited as a primary ingredient in skin cream. Fatty acids help to hydrate the skin. The fat in cocoa butter creates a protective barrier that holds in moisture and prevents your skin from drying.
Beeswax contains anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties as well. Beeswax contains Vitamin A, which helps protect skin cells from environmental irritants while helping to regulate skin regeneration. If you suffer from dry skin itchiness, dermatitis or eczema, beeswax helps heal these conditions while at the same time providing itch relief.
Directions: Gently massage into the skin.
