Base balm

Base balm

(Makes 100g)


15g beeswax
85g organic carrier oil of your choice
10 drops essential oil (optional)


Gently melt the beeswax, add the oil and blend. Add the essential oil and blend again. Pour into pots and let set.

Oils have varying properties:
Hemp seed and tamanu oils are renown for healing;
Sweet almond is a good base oil, as is sunflower oil.

Add more beeswax for a firmer ointment, more oil for a softer one.

Use infused oils, like calendula oil, for the greater healing power of the herbs. Make sure these oils are part of your base carrier oil.
