Coconut Oil Makes A Great Winter Moisturizer!

Sweet Orange essential oil has such a bright, summery aroma . . . and I love using it in the winter!
One of my favorite winter moisturizer blends is made with Sweet Orange and Cardamom essential oils in a base of coconut oil. The aroma is spicy, warm, sweet, and tropical. This is such a comforting, cozy, uplifting blend (perfect for this time of year).
  • 1 oz (30 ml) coconut oil (Cocos nucifera)
  • 6 drops Sweet Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
  • 6 drops Cardamom essential oil (Ellettaria cardamomum)
Just put your coconut oil in a PET plastic jar or bottle, then stir in your essential oils. You’re done!
I use raw, unrefined coconut oil, which helps to relieve dryness, itching, and irritated skin (including chronic conditions like eczema).
A little bit of this moisturizer goes a long way! Dab a bit on your finger, and you’ll see it spreads almost all over one arm. You can also use a bit as a protective hair moisturizer, but be sure to start small—if you use too much, you’ll have to wash your hair all over again.
