Herbal Healing Balms

 

Basic Vapor Rub

 

Directions

  1. Depending on the texture you want, measure out the beeswax. Less wax will yield more of an ointment viscosity, while using the whole ounce of wax will create a more solid, lip balm like consistency. 

  2. Place beeswax and oil in the top of a double boiler and heat gently until the beeswax melts.

  3. Remove from the stovetop and stir in the essential oils, counting each drop carefully.

  4. Immediately pour the mixture into glass jars and place lids loosely over the jars so the oils don't escape, but allow to cool completely before placing caps onto the containers.  

 

Menthol Chest Balm

 

Directions

  1. Depending on the texture you want, measure out the beeswax. Less wax will yield more of an ointment viscosity, while the whole ounce of wax will create a more solid, lip balm like consistency. 

  2. Heat the olive oil and beeswax in a double boiler until the beeswax melts. Remove from heat.

  3. Add menthol crystals (1/2 teaspoon for a gentle balm or 1 teaspoon for a stronger remedy) and essential oils, stir until dissolved, and quickly pour into jars.

  4. Immediately place lids loosely over the jars so the oils don't escape, but allow to cool completely before placing caps onto the containers.   

Note: The menthol crystals may be irritating when inhaled, so always use them in a well ventilated area or wear a mask if needed.
