DIY: Tropical Coconut Moisturizer

ACS_1006Full of skin nourishing oils and a bright, tropical scent; this quick and easy body moisturizer will transport you to a lush tropical island – right from your own home!

The aromatherapeutic blend of essential oils will help relax you, easing tension and irritability, while promoting feelings of energy, positivity and mild euphoria. (The way a nice relaxing vacation makes you feel).

What’s in it?

Coconut oil: Full of saturated fats, coconut oil is great for moisturizing and relieving dry, itchy skin. Coconut oil won’t clog pores, yet it will form a protective barrier on the skin, helping to retain moisture. Because we are going for a tropical scent, choose an unrefined, virgin coconut oil to retain the coconut aroma.

Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil: Calms tension and is uplifting, encouraging energy and positivity. The aroma is sweet, citrusy, and bright.

Sandalwood (Santalum albumessential oil: Promotes inner unity, bringing us back to ourselves. Reduces feelings of irritation and encourages feelings of self-acceptance. The aroma is slightly sweet, exotic, and woody.

Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata var. genuina) essential oil: Relaxing, calming, and encourages feelings of mild euphoria. The aroma is floral, sweet, and exotic.

Add all ingredients into a 1 ounce glass jar and stir well. (If your coconut oil is a little too hard to stir, run the jar under warm water for a few seconds to loosen it a bit.)

Apply as an all-over body moisturizer. Enjoy!!
