The body needs healthy oils for healthy skin. The fats serve as the building blocks for the oil producing glands that reduce dryness & form a protective barrier. Raw nuts & seeds are 1 of the richest sources of omega-6 oils & a natural vitamin E. Green tea protects against premature aging. Topically it can constrict blood vessels, tightens skin & reduces puffiness. Strawberries, kiwi, oranges, broccoli & peppers are all rich sources of Vitamin C a vital cofactor in the synthesis of collagen.
I have been making this all-purpose healing salve for years and it has become a staple in my medicine cabinet. It’s made up of simple ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil, pure essential oils from Spark Naturals, and a splash of vitamin E to create an organic salve with Neosporin-like properties. A salve that will protect, disinfect AND moisturize! Believe me, this is one workhorse of a salve that you’ll reach for over and over again.
