What's your night time routine?
One of my favorite steps of my night time routines is hydrating my super dry skin. I usually do this at the end of the day because I have more time to pamper myself thoroughly. Most of the lotion scents I have are fruity and stimulate my senses. This soothing night time balm gives the hydration your skin needs and has a calming aroma that helps you fall right to sleep!
These are the things that you will need:
¼ c. Shea Butter
¼ c. Unrefined Coconut Oil
15 drops Juniper Berry Essential Oil
15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil
Place the shea butter and unrefined coconut oil on the stove in a double boiler and heat on low until melted or combined. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a bit. Once slightly cool, add the essential oils and set aside. Do not place in the refrigerator or freezer. This will make the mixture to become extremely hard.
Once cool, the mixture should firm up a bit. Use an electric mixer and “whip” the mixture until it becomes a lotion-like consistency. If you want your lotion to be even more whipped and light, continue to whisk until soft peaks form. Place in a container and slather on skin before bed for a hydrating and relaxing experience!
