Once you allow this fragrant oil to cool for about 20 to 30 minutes, it will firm up into a nicely textured balm that you can apply directly to the skin.
“It’s our go-to for any cold-weather discomfort or minor injury. It soothes pain, stops itching, brings down inflammation and rashes, and helps the cells of your skin heal up quickly!”
“This recipe is super moisturizing. Coconut and herbal oils are our two bases, and they work together to rehydrate the skin. Plus, they are antibacterial and rich in vitamin E, which fights against the symptoms of aging. So you can apply this balm to uninjured, dry skin which tends to happen as the days get colder.”
