My friend, Tonya Chapa, of Peppermint Posh is the queen of Pinterest-worthy DIY gifts! She agreed to join us here at the Common Scents Mom to share some of her favorite essential oil-infused creations! My hands are thanking her for this one!
The cold air outdoors and the warm atmosphere inside sure does take its toll on our skin! I find that my nails become more brittle and harder to care for this time of year.
Soothing Cuticle Balm would make a thoughtful gift for the ladies in your life: daughters, mothers, neighbors, teachers, friends. Packed with wonderful nutrients, this balm is certain to bring relief to dry and cracking cuticles!
Apply the cuticle balm to your nail beds after washing your hands or any time your hands or feet feel dry, and you’ll enjoy sweet relief in no time!
This recipe is super easy to follow. You just need a few ingredients and little bit of time.
Soothing Cuticle Balm
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Sweet Almond Oil
1 Tbsp Mango Butter
1 1/2 Tbsp Grated Beeswax
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
5 drops Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil
5 drops Fennel Essential Oils
5 drops Clary Sage Essential Oil
1. In a double boiler, melt the beeswax and oils.
2. Remove from heat and add the essential oils.
3. Pour into pots and leave untouched to set.
4. Add a cute label if you’d like. I found mine at Evermine. (I am not an affiliate, but I love their labels!)
I found the pots at Elements Bath and Body. Again, I’m not an affiliate, but I like their products.
Hey, Winter! You don’t scare me!
Did you know that you can purchase Young Living Therapeutic Grade essential oils at the wholesale price (kind of like a Costco or Sam’s membership, only without the annual fees)? It’s true! Visit Tonya at Peppermint Posh for more details!
