Lemon Essential Oil: Lemon essential oil releases a clean fresh scent that can aid with relieving stress and anxiety. Many find lemon essential oil to be a very calming oil. Studies have shown that plants with a high citrus content like lemon have high levels of inflammation-fighting antioxidants.
Tea Tree Essential Oil: Studies have shown that it kills several common bacteria and viruses responsible for causing illness. It may help keep pesky insects away and its antifungal properties may help alleviate symptoms of athlete’s foot. It is an antiseptic for minor cuts and scrapes. It may help speed wound healing by reducing inflammation and increasing white blood cell activity. Products with tea tree oil have been shown to reduce the number of lesions and severity of acne in a number of studies. It can also help combat skin inflammation.
Coconut oil is incredibly moisturizing and contains caprilic 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.
