Ditch petroleum filled products – Make your own salve or cream -:-

salve

i don’t often by creams anymore but simply make my own.

nothing complicated…..

i melt down some good quality coconut oil & add essential oils

like Lavender & Patchouli to it (both good for skin and healing)

stir

and place in a mason jar

it solidifies after awhile and is easy to use

oil infusions are great for bases in salves

like calendula or rose

i ditched commercial cosmetics and self care products a LONG time ago.

the chemicals are too many to count.

with babies especially who have such delicate sensitive skin

i keep it simple
