Its fun to try and make everyday items from scratch. You can make cosmetics, simple creams, lip balm and salves very easily. What’s nice about it, is you know exactly what is in them and for kids or babies its a good idea to make sure you are using pure ingredients. Oils such as Shea Oil, Bees Wax, Jojoba Oil and natural extracted oils such as Lavender, Rose, Peppermint, Bergamot add healing properties, scents and interest to your lib balm.
16 oz. of Balm
1 oz Jojoba Oil
2 oz. Cocoa Butter
1 oz. Beeswax
1 oz Shea Oil
6- 8 drops of Essential oil
Place all of the ingredients into a double boiler or chocolate melter and warm until fully melted.
Add the essential oils of your choice and pour into a jar, tin or container.

We have found the easiest way to melt and pour the balm is with the melting pot.
Remember this recipe makes quite a bit and it can always be re-melted and altered. Perhaps you want more or another type of Essential oil added to it or make a creamer consistency you could add more cocoa butter or shea butter too it.
