My all purpose balm recipe
I made this little pot of balm and have found it really useful recently. After planting all my seeds at the weekend my hands were really dry, I slathered this on and they felt so much better instantly. It takes make up off, softens lips, works as a night time skin treat, soothes ouchies, softens cuticles….the list is long.
It’s made with simple ingredients and your own choice of essential oils
I n g r e d i e n t s
4 tbsp Rosehip oil
2 tbsp Coconut oil (I used fractionated)
2 tbsp Sweet Almond oil
1/2 tbsp Beeswax
4 drops Rose essential oil
5 drops Geranium essential oil
5 drops Frankincense
If you’re using starter kit oils you could do Lavender, Frankincense and Copiaba
T o M a k e
I sit the glass jar in a small saucepan and fill the pan up to half way up the jar with water.
Bring to the boil and add your carrier oils and beeswax.
Boil until the the beeswax has melted and all are combined.
Remove the jar from the pan and add your essential oils.
Give it a stir.
Leave to set and use whenever needed.
