Herbal Healing Balm Recipe

Submitted By:

Stephanie of Conway, AR

Summary:

This balm sinks in quickly, about 5 minutes, and has a wonderful scent from the infused herbs. Lightly applied, it is a great all-over balm. It can be applied more heavily to heal and sooth dry skin.

Ingredients:

4 parts beeswax
4 parts olive oil infused w/ equal parts of calendula, comfrey root, chamomile, and nettle
1 part liquid jojoba
1 part avocado oil
6 parts sweet almond oil
1% T50(optional

Instructions:

I usually measure by fractions of a cup, but you can make a "part" whatever you desire. Melt wax in double boiler. Turn off heat. Add remaining ingredents, stiring to prevent wax from becoming solid. Pour into wide mouthed jar or tin. Allow to set until solid. (Cosistency can be checked before pouring by dipping a spoon into the mix, and more wax or oils can be added to adjust firmness.)

Customer Testimonial

"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
