If you’re in a hot, dry climate, you could have no better friend than Ylang Ylang essential oil (except maybe a saltwater swimming pool).
Ylang Ylang is a very cooling oil with wonderful moisturizing properties. I love it in blends for dry, chapped skin (and that can happen no matter what climate you’re in).
I have a blend for Dry & Chapped Skin Butter that you can make yourself. (Find it here!) The recipe is so nourishing to skin, it works well even with no essential oils, but the oils can add a layer of nourishment.
Here’s a blend suggestion that combines perfectly with the skin butter recipe:
- 35 drops Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
- 60 drops Orange (Citrus sinensis)
- 45 drops Patchouli (Pogostemom cablin)
Does it seem like a lot of essential oil? That’s because the recipe makes 14 oz (392 gm) of body butter!
Does it seem like a lot of body butter? That’s because dry, chapped skin needs extra love!
So use your body butter every day, and enjoy!
