DIY Skin Cream | Essential Oil

My 4 year old son has extremely sensitive skin… Just from wearing denim jeans, his legs become rough w/ red patches that get really sore & itchy for him, almost like an eczema.

I picked up some mason jars at a local store, and used the following recipe:

1 cup organic Coconut Oil
15 drops Lavender Oil
15 drops Melrose (which is a blend of melaleuca/tea tree oil, rosemary, and clove)

Whip the coconut oil in a stand mixer (or bowl).  Add in drops of essential oil, and blend well.  Store mixture in the glass mason jar.  (Melrose is a blend of

I apply this directly to my son’s skin after baths & sometimes before getting him dressed in the mornings.  It has done wonders for his skin, and I feel more confident using this blend over store bought lotions.

Sweet moment…

“We don’t even need it, but God loves us SO much that he gives us second chances.. ” “and He wants us to have internal life” (hehe… eternal, but she understands what it means!)
“I want to see Jesus and go to heaven someday”…

Ashlyn was telling me what she learned about Jonah today at church.  There is truly nothing that makes my mama heart swell more than hearing these sorts of things from my children’s mouths..  Love, love, love to see them growing in Christ! <3

Kindergarten Spring Concert | Ashlyn

Her very first Kindergarten program… She was so excited about the songs that they would sing.  We even got a sneak preview “in home” prior to the concert;) The kids did such a great job singing, and were so proud to be on the risers..   Since she looked so dang cute, we had to do a quick portrait session when we got home.  Can we say sassy?  Ohhhhh  yes… plenty of that!:)
