soothing & smoothing balm
This DIY balm can be used for everything from irritated skin, healing and sealing, hemorrhoids, dry elbows to a hair mask. I use this balm especially when I feel like my hands feel dry or for certain skin problems, even scars. Balms are used for healing and soothing.
25 ml beeswax (vegan: carnauba wax)
70 ml jojoba oil
2 ml chamomile
2 ml lavender
2 ml sandalwood
2 ml geranium
1 ml sweet thyme
melt beeswax in a double boiler. when melted, add jojoba and heat until liquid again. add essential oils last. stir together, pour into jars and let cool overnight.
