Many times essential oils require carrier oils, such as grapeseed oil or coconut oil to apply. As moms on the go, however, it sometimes can be difficult to carry around extra bottles of carrier oil and apply it while out and about, so i thought, hey i can make a salve instead!
You’ll need the following:
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup olive oil
- 4 tablespoons beeswax
I use organic supplies whenever possible. The organic coconut oil and olive oil I purchased from Trader Joe’s. The organic beeswax I found on amazon.
Put all ingredients into a double boiler and melt.
It took about 15-20 minutes for all of it to melt. The beeswax pellets take a little longer to melt.
Then pour mixture into containers. I had a bunch of small metal tins on hand so I used those. You can also use small mason jars, even baby food jars work well! Let them cool before handling. Easy peasy!
