Winter is typically when moisture decreases and skin often becomes dry. You can use various methods to treat dry skin at home, but your options may be limited when traveling. One idea is to make a homemade winter lotion to apply when needed. This can easily be done at home right in your own kitchen.

A basic homemade winter lotion can be made using olive oil. However, essential oils are also a way to make a moisturizing lotion at home. If you decide to go the olive oil route, then various herbs can be used to enhance the oil and provide the lotion with a lovely scent. Some of the better known herbs include St. John’s wort and calendula flowers. You may need to order the herbs for your homemade winter lotion online if they are not available locally.

The best way to make a moisturizing lotion at home is to use fresh, organic ingredients. However, these may not be available and dry ingredients may need to be substituted. After you’ve obtained your herbs, the mixing process is easy. Mixing your homemade winter lotion is similar to making frosting. You will be mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl and the best thing about a simple lotion is that it can be used immediately.

Lotions that are made using essential oils are a great way to enjoy a lovely fragrance when you apply a homemade winter lotion to your skin. There are many brands available online. One thing about using a variety of essential oils for any lotion is the mixture needs to be heated. This process requires the use of your kitchen stove.

Cleanliness is the main thing to keep in mind when making a homemade winter lotion. Your lotion will need to be free of any mold or bacteria growth. The completed product should last you about six months without any need for refrigeration.
