A Healing Balm Recipe for Your Skin

A Healing Balm Recipe for Your Skin

 Protect your skin

From Nick Polizzi, founder of the Sacred Science

The winter weather can be tough on skin. Cold temperatures cause chapping and bleeding. Dry wintry air pulls moisture from our skin and leaves it brittle.

Below I’ve
shared my family’s tried and true first-aid skin balm!
It’s our go-to for any cold-weather discomfort or
minor injury. It soothes pain, stops itching, brings down inflammation and
rashes, and helps the cells of your skin heal up quickly!

This recipe is
super moisturizing. Coconut and herbal oils are our two bases, and they work
together to rehydrate the skin. Plus, they are antibacterial and rich in
vitamin E, which fights against the symptoms of aging. So you can apply this
balm to uninjured, dry skin which tends to happen as the days get colder.

*Please note:
To make the balm, you’ll need a double boiler. But not to worry if you don’t
have one of these – you can use everyday kitchen items to make one! All you’ll
need is a pot that is about halfway filled with water, and a glass bowl that
can sit in the top of the pot, suspended about 2 or 3 inches above the surface
of the water (it doesn’t need to be a perfect fit for it to work!)

Healing Skin
Balm Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp.
    Calendula herbal oil

  • 1 Tbsp.
    Plantain herbal oil

  • 1 Tbsp
    Coconut oil

  • 2 drops
    Tea tree essential oil

  • 2 drops
    Lavender essential oil

  • 1-2 tsp.
    Beeswax (depending on how firm you want the salve)

  • 1 ounce
    salve tin

Instructions:

  1. Place
    calendula, plantain oil, and coconut oil into the double boiler, on low
    heat

  2. Heat for
    20-30 minutes. *make sure not to simmer, just warm*

  3. Add the
    beeswax, stir continuously until dissolved.

  4. Add tea
    tree and lavender essential oils and stir gently for 5 minutes.

  5. Pour into
    the salve tin.

  6. Leave the
    lid off until fully cool.

Once you allow
this fragrant oil to cool for about 20 to 30 minutes, it will firm up into a
nicely textured balm that you can apply directly to the skin.

Dry skin, of
course, is not always just a result of the weather.

Dry or irritated
skin is also often one of the first physical symptoms of a hormonal imbalance.
Your hormones regulate every critical process in your body, and when they are
not working in harmony, problems arise.

In a sense, your
skin is the proverbial “canary in the coal mine” when it comes to
hormone imbalances. An imbalance could show itself as dry skin, oily skin, thin
eyebrows, oily or thin hair, or skin breakouts (as well as in other ways).
