DIY Essential Oil Blend for Dry Skin
As I am studying aromatherapy, part of my course is doing case studies, where I help friends, family and acquaintances with their individual problems.
Case Study: In this particular case study, my mother-in-law was telling me about her very itchy, super dry and flaky skin on her legs. She is a smoker and spends a lot of time in the sun, golfing during summer months. She had to work very hard every day to not scratch her legs until they bled. My aromatherapy blend for her was a combination of carrier oil blending, plus using some of the oils I’ve mentioned above to create a pleasing ointment for her. She immediately loved the scent, said it was uplifting and almost peppermint-y. I agreed, it turned out to be a very uplifting smelling blend, mostly thanks to the Geranium I believe. They were visiting us for a few days and first used it at night time. The next morning, she came to me and surprisingly said: “Holy cow! My legs are already way less flaky!” She thankfully took the bottle home.
What I believe works especially well in this blend is the Hazelnut oil (carrier oil) added to the base, because it is just L O A D E D with essential fatty acids and skin-nourishing vitamins that boost collagen production.
True to my mentality of using multiple popular essential oil brands, I have used the following products. I’ve also created my dry skin blend with some of these best essential oils for dry skin conditions.
Base (carrier oil) blend:
Essential oils (add to base):
- Prepare an empty 1 oz amber bottle.
- Fill the bottle half with Hazelnut oil.
- Add Sweet Almond oil until you’re about 1/4″ from the top.
- Add the essential oils to the carrier oil.
- Use the oils as natural moisturizer, for massage, to nourish some skin patches, or as a simple hand lotion.
The intention will be to put this mixture directly to the skin. After applying this lotion, your skin should begin to feel better quickly. Use it on any affected area of your body.
This DIY skin oil repairs dry, rough skin. With frequent use, it may also help to stop dry skin from recurring.
With essential oils, you can moisturize and soften your skin for the entire day.
