Essential Oils are quickly becoming a staple in my house, they have so many great uses and they smell amazing. Recently I realized that I could combine my favorite lotion with my favorite oils to not only soothe my irritated skin but also get the added benefits of essential oils. Nivea is amazing for dry skin and you only need the tiniest amount and it goes a long way, much like essential oils.
I picked up this tiny tin of Nivea Creme for just $1 and was able to make 3 different essential oil lotions out of it because you don’t need a lot and it goes really far.
Quick & Easy Essential Oil Lotion
Take 1 drop of your favorite essential oil and ad it to a teaspoon size amount of Nivea Creme, really work it together in your hands and then apply.
For a calming lotion I added 1 drop of lavender.
For energy, to soothe my headaches or when my little one has a fever 1 drop of peppermint oil is great.
For muscle relief after an intense workout I add 1 drop of PanAway essential oil
There are many other oils you could mix to give you the perfect scent including Joy Essential Oil or Peace & Calm Essential Oil all of these will give your skin relief as well as your senses with these great smelling oils.
I love that my favorite lotion now comes in my favorite essential oil scents and it just cost $1 for a small tin that goes a long way. Keep the tin and your favorite oil in your purse for instant essential oil lotion on the go.
