This salve has been huge in our family. I recently got my friend Tiffany @belvoedessentials recipe and tweaked mine to make it even more healing... I added some amazing oils like Copaiba and Yarrow/Pom. This SALVE is a must have for all the diaper bags and all the mamas. I love love love this. and love that i know what is in and all fo the ingredients are nourishing to your skin with no fillers, chemicals, synthetic fragrance, or petroleum..... This salve is amazing for chapped skin, diaper rash, dry skin, eczema, or any irritations. My little guy has always had super sensitive skin and always had bumps and going green with all of my personal care products has been essential... I took one thing at a time. So I love to my salve, body butter, use dryer balls, diluted essential oils and all the things.... reducing toxins is so essential.... So here is a fabulous recipe that I think you will really enjoy!!!!!
1/2 Cup of Raw organic coconut oil.
1/2 Cup + 2 tablespoons of Raw Organic Shea Butter.
4 Tablespoons of Beeswax...
1 Tablespoon of Vitamin E oil.
20 Drops of Frankincense.
20 Drops of Lavender.
20 Drops of Copaiba.
10-20 Drops of Yarrow/Pom Optional... but so good.
2 Oz. metal tins.
Stir Stick or metal straws to stir.
Directions: Melt all the raw ingredients together in a double boiler. Or I just put a glass pyrex dish in a pan of hot water and let boil, so the ingredients melt together. As soon as all of the beeswax is melted down, and you don't want the ingredients to boil., take off of the stove and let sit. Let it cool but before it starts to set up, add your essential oils. After you add and stir, then pour the liquid into 2 oz. metal tins. I pour mine til it reaches the ribbing... then stop..
Allow the salve to set up and harden. and then you have some awesome salve that we love to use for hydration, for chap lips, for diaper cream, for cracked heals... radiation burns...... ALL the THINGS!!!
This makes a great gift.
