How to Make a Soothing Body Oil

Natural Mosiurizing Body Oil

Natural Mosiurizing Body Oil

•1 cup of Parsley leaves (dried or fresh)
•1 quart Almond or Olive oil
•1 quart jar with a lid

This soothing body oil is a must for dry skin. Especially for feet and hands that are exposed to winter weather when the skin is most likely to have a tendency to dry out and crack. The main ingredients are both natural and safe to use for all ages. Almond and Olive oils have been used since ancient times for skin and beauty care products.Parsley is well known to contribute to healthy skin and the seeds are used for the extraction of an oil called Apiol, which has been known to have healing properties.

Place the Parsley in the jar. Warm the oil to the point where you can still touch it.

Pour the warm oil over the Parsley in the jar and mix well so the herb is well covered.

Place the covered jar on a sunny window sill or in a warm room for 3 days. Get ready to enjoy a soothing body massage.

Strain the oil by squeezing the oil from the Parsley into the jar. You can use a large spoon to press the herb against the side of the jar or use a strainer held over the jar. Discard parsley.

Bottle the oil in a clean jar with a tight lid. No need to refrigerate. Use as needed and as often as you would like.

Warm the oil slightly before massage but do not overheat

Be careful not to heat oil to hot.

Do not get into eyes, mounth or ears.

      wow, I was away for awhile and had many comments waiting. I want to thank ya'll for your comments on this article. Yes, this is safe to rub into the skin or apply using a cotton wrap, whichever is more comfortable for you. Thanks again!
