Balm containers with lids
2tablespoonsbeeswax pastillesor chopped beeswax if you have a brick
5dropsmyrrh essential oil
5dropsfrankincense essential oil
3dropsgeranium essential oil
4dropslavender essential oil
2dropstea tree essential oil
Add the beeswax, coconut oil and jojoba oil to your double boiler over medium heat. Stir until all ingredients are melted and well combined.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool just slightly (you don’t want it to harden!), then you can add in the essential oils. The myrrh is a thick oil, and it takes a minute to get going, so be prepared for that. The rest of the oils are very runny, so be careful to not overdo it on the essential oils.
Pour your dry skin balm into the containers until it reaches just under the top edge.
Let the containers sit, uncovered, at room temperature until they are completely cool. Feel the centers of the bottom of the containers to tell for sure. It may take up to an hour, depending on the size of the containers you used. You don’t want to put the lids on early, as it will cause moisture to build up inside which can cause issues with the balm down the road. Once you are sure the containers are completely cool, go ahead and put on the lids.
How To Use Dry Skin Balm
Apply the dry skin balm to any areas that need moisture, or are flaky and dry. For itchy skin, do the same.
You can repeat this process as needed.
