Pampering the body naturally challenge

Congratulations for taking part in this challenge.


Remember to take care of your body and it only takes minutes per day.  Set up a routine and make sure you stick to it.

Yesterday we gave our feet a rest and today we are going to moisturize them.  I love shea butter because it is an excellent moisturizer.  I wear a lot of socks during the winter months which can cause extreme dryness.  A way to combat the abuse our feet are subjected to is to keep them clean and moisturized.   I love to make a night time moisture cream for my feet.  At night I try to stay away from stimulating oils, so I created an essential oil blend of vetiver, lavender and sweet orange.  I love Vetiver because it has anti-fungal and anti-septic properties.  It is also a grounding oil and I feel it is perfect as a part of a night time foot cream.  Lavender helps to relieve stress and has deodorant properties.  I added sweet orange to bring a little freshness to the blend and it also has anti-septic properties.

This recipe is simple.

In a double boiler add 2 tablespoons Shea butter and melt.
Remove from heat
Next add 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil (or carrier of choice) to melted shea butter.
stir and add
4 drops Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides)
3 drops Sweet orange (Citrus sinensis)
3 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)

Place in the refrigerator to allow to cool and to prevent graininess.  Use each night after your shower or bath.
