Homebrew: Pine Forest Body Lotion

TYPE: BODY LOTION.
HERBS: PINE, SPRUCE, PEPPERMINT, CYPRESS, SHEA, GRAPESEED, ALMOND.
USES: WINTER SKIN MOISTURIZER.

Colder months tend to call for deeper moisture for my skin – so I decided to try my hand at making my own body lotion.


I know shea butter is deeply moisturizing but tends to be a bit heavier – I figured a combination with grapeseed and almond oil would provide substantial protection from the elements as well as moisture that lasts.

This time of year I’m happy to be cozy in my apartment but there’s something I miss dearly about crunching through the snow, my footsteps the only sound in a pine forest hushed by winter.

The rejuvenating combination of essential oils in this  lotion helps me return to a quiet place deep in the forest while keeping my skin glowing even on the coldest days, when the weather is at it’s driest and harshest.

In the future I may try to make a lighter blend for the warmer months, but I will definitely be using up the jar I made of this over the next few months.
