Essential oils for dry skin in the winter can relieve red, dry, cracked, and even bleeding skin for those who endure the uncomfortableness of cold weather every year.
So if you’re a native to snow-swept winters, then you are no stranger to the toll it takes on the skin. Essential oils for dry skin in the winter are a natural, chemical-free way to soothe winter skin.*
Dilute 5-10 drops of the independent essential oils, below, in 2 tablespoons of base oil, with 2 drops carrot oil. Use in the same way as a moisturizing cream or lotion.**
Carrot oil, as an essential oil, is often used as a base oil, due to its immense healing properties. It is rejuvenating and reduces scarring, and can be used to treat premature aging, itching, dryness, psoriasis and eczema.*
Almond oil, a base oil, is moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and reduces wrinkles. It is also rich in vitamin E and can protect skin from oxidative stress.*
Apricot kernel oil, another base oil, is rich in gamma linoleic acid, or GLA, which comes from essential fatty acid omega-6. The GLA content in apricot kernel oil helps skin to maintain moisture balance.*
Store the above carrier oils in airtight containers for up to a year, and throw away if they become rancid or discolored.
