Heya! Hiya! How are ya!?
How is the weather where you are?
It has been wetter and colder here in Arizona than most years (at least that I remember) and let me tell you – this weather is wreaking havoc on our skin!
Poor little Miss A has always had… sensitive skin… and we have done really well keeping her skin healthy, but this weather has definitely caused all of our “hard work” to revert back to non-existent.
I figured now is as good as time as any to share our home remedy for skin support and share my favorite essential oil blend.

I am telling you – any time we have a skin issue – this is our go-to recipe:
- 1 tablespoon carrier oil; we use fractionated coconut oil, but you can also use organic and unrefined: coconut oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, olive oil
- 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 10 drops Melaleuca A/Tea Tree Oil
We use this skin support blend quite a bit so we keep it in a Glass Roll-on Bottle, Amber Glass Essential Oil Bottle or Glass Spray Misters. (We used to keep it in a small mason jar and apply with a cotton ball when we first started, but have since found that a roller ball works best for us.)
If you are going to use the entire tablespoon in one use, you can mix it easily in an empty medicine cup, but like I mentioned above, we use it often so we usually double or triple the dose and hold on to the extra to use next time.
If you are interested in purchasing or learning more about essential oils, feel free to email me or message me on any of my social media channels. I would love to share with you what I know, our favorite recipes (which I will be sharing more of) or help you purchase essential oils for yourself or your family. (Be on the lookout for my essential oil story soon!)
In the meantime, try this blend and let me know your thoughts!
