Our skin is incredible. It protects us from many things and does some amazing things!

On today's episode, I'm focusing on how to nourish the outermost layer of our skin and I'm talking about the benefits of three carrier oils:

  1. Sunflower
  2. Safflower
  3. Flaxseed Oil

Why are these vegetable oils so important? They are high in linoleic acid, which is a fatty acid that protects our skin from losing water (in the most simple terms). I also provide a simple recipe for a body oil (2 ounces):

  • 1/2 ounce of flaxseed oil
  • 1/2 ounce of safflower oil
  • 1 ounce of sunflower oil

If adding essential oils:

  • 7 drops lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • 1 drop of peppermint (Mentha piperita)
  • 7 drops of tangerine (Citrus reticulata) or sweet orange oil (Citrus sinensis)
