Happy Place Salve

Why do I call this a salve and chapstick? Because not only can you apply this on your lips, but you can apply it on all areas of the body. I personally enjoy this recipe for my lips, as a hand cream, for eczema spots, and on my aged skin. Oh, and I have also used it on baby’s bum. I keep various tubes with specific labels on them around the house. My children each keep a tube with them at all times.

Materials

  • lip balm tubes (approximately 25)
  • lip balm filling tray
  • 2 cup glass measuring cup
  • spoon
  • beeswax
  • naturally-refined shea butter
  • organic coconut oil
  • grapeseed oil
  • essential oils of choice (Frankincense and Lavender for skin properties mentioned above)

Ingredients (Yields approx 25 tubes)

  • 1/4 cup beeswax (a local wax would be best, but any will work)
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/8 cup naturally-refined shea butter
  • 1/3 cup organic coconut oil
  • 35 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
  • 35 drops Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil

Method

  1. Pop lip balm tubes into lip balm filling trays
  2. Melt the first four ingredients together in the glass measuring cup on a double boiler. To preserve the properties of the materials, do not allow materials to go above 170 degrees.
  3. Stir in essential oils with a spoon
  4. Pour liquid into tubes (attached to filling trays)
  5. Allow liquid to cool for 1 hour
  6. Scrape excess off tube tray and put in additional container.
