Besides this, it’s super smooth and easy to rub into the skin.

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1/4 cup white beeswax pastilles
  • 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp vitamin e oil

You can of course add chamomile or lavender oil into the balm too!

How to make the balm:

To make the all natural soothing balm first place beeswax and coconut oil in a glass jar.

To mix these two oils melt them on high power in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir the mixture and put it back into the microwave.

Heat the mixture up in 30-second increments and after each heating interval stir the mixture well.

If you don’t have a microwave or you don’t feel comfortable using one for this step you can also place the jar in a pan of hot water over low heat and allow to melt while stirring.

After about 2,5 to three minutes in the microwave the mixture should be completely melted. This is when you add your almond and vitamin E oil, then heat for 30 more seconds. You can also add other oils if you feel like it.

After this step, all you have to do is pour your balm into small jars and let it cool completely before using it.
