Note: Jillee offered this as a lotion for use during the winter. But I think it works well all year long.
During the winter many people end up with dry, cracked skin. It’s hard to avoid. The weather is cold, the indoor heat is dry, and as Jillee (One Good Thing) points out, we are often washing our hands in order to fend off colds and the flu.
This is a simple lotion recipe that uses 3 essential oils that have antibacterial properties. Jillee first explains how to make the lotion. After that you just add the essential oils and you’re armed with an antibacterial lotion!
Note: Jillee does use a particular type of commercial lotion as the base. You can replace that with shea butter, cocoa butter or an organic, commercial lotion that you like. Click on the Make Your Own Simple Antibacterial Moisturizing Lotion link below to see the recipe.
