Home made bee balm

I love making my own products. I find it so satisfying. Not to mention it saves me lots of money! I also know exactly what has gone into the product. In my search to find a new baby botty balm I came across this easy recipe from a delightful home. Stacy calls this non-petroleum jelly but I think bee balm has a nice ring to it. This bee balm can be used anywhere that you would normally use petroleum jelly. Petroleum jelly (Vaseline) is a by-product of oil drilling. So basically when you use petroleum jelly you’re rubbing oil (gasoline) on your body. Eww and double eww.

What you’ll need:

30g grated beeswax
1/2 cup olive oil

What to do:

Melt the beeswax and olive oil over a low heat in a sauce pan (this happens very quickly so stay close by).
Once melted pour into clean glass jars.
This balm can be used on anyone and anywhere. It makes a great baby balm and lip balm. It also works fantastically as a pot sealer, tree sealer and is also good for helping chickens with scaly leg mites.
