Is your skin feeling (and showing) the effects of winter? You know what I mean; that red, raw, dry, and coarse appearance that makes you thankful for sweater weather. Unfortunately, not only is this “winter skin” unsightly it can also be darn uncomfortable. From itchy to painful, winter skin can definitely make you wish you were hibernating… that is until now. Thanks to this homemade healing salve your skin will be as good as new!
This homemade healing salve recipe has got to be one of my favorite homemade beauty products, especially in the winter. It’s filled with good for your skin ingredients and natural moisturizers like coconut oil and Shea butter. If you’ve spent any time on Freebie Finding Mom, you know I’m a huge fan of coconut oil (and for good reason); if you’re unfamiliar with coconut oil, check out this article, The Many Beauty and Health Benefits of Coconut Oil.
This homemade healing salve is filled with good, natural ingredients, but its benefits don’t stop there. In addition, it can be made quickly; it’ll take you approximately 20 minutes to whip up this soothing homemade healing salve. Plus, with only 5 ingredients (6 if you add in the optional essential oil), you don’t have to invest a lot of money into trying this homemade healing salve out. Lastly, and probably most importantly to us DIY challenged individuals, it’s easy to make. You simply combine ingredients, melt, and store. No tricky moves here!
What are you waiting for? Whip up this homemade healing salve now, your skin will thank you!

Do you like to use homemade beauty products and homemade cleaners? I love the ability to make products to use in my home that are all natural and safe which is why I am a big fan of essential oils. Young Living essential oils are my favorite oils because they are some of the best essential oils on the market. I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
