Herbal Skin Soother

This rich, nutritive body oil, fortified with soothing herbs and essential oils, will calm even the most aggravated skin conditions. When we alternately expose our skin to cold spring air followed by the warm dry air of central heating systems, the skin often becomes dry and itchy. St. John’s wort is an excellent herb for this condition. Rich, vanilla-like benzoin and earthy German Chamomile work synergistically for their anti-inflammatory properties while rose and sandalwood are antiseptic to the skin.

Makes 4 ounces

4-ounce glass bottle

1/2 ounce St. John’s wort infused oil

1 ounce avocado oil

2 drops rose otto essential oil

4 drops sandalwood essential oil

5 drops German chamomile essential oil

18 drops benzoin essential oil

2 1/2 ounces grapeseed oil

Fill the bottle partway with 1/2 ounce of St. John’s wort oil and 1 ounce avocado oil as the carrier. Add essential oils and shake well. Top off with grapeseed oil and agitate again. Apply to body as needed after bath or shower.
