Lavender balm recipe

lavender balm recipe

This Christmas I decided to make homemade lavender balm as a small gift for my friends and family. I made dandelion balm for my husband back in the summer, and recently made eucalyptus balm as a natural alternative to menthol soothers.
Homemade balm is inexpensive to make and great for a variety of uses, including baby balm, lip balm and a great barrier balm for dry skin.
Because it uses only natural ingredients it's great for sensitive skin and even the smallest tot.

How to make lavender balm
Pour your oil and beeswax into a metal saucepan.
Gently heat until the wax desolves.
Remove mix from the heat, and add the lavender essential oil.
I added a few drops of English chamomile and a bit of honey comb to mine, to give it an extra soothing quality.
Pour your balm mix into moulds and allow to set. Mini moulds will set quickly.

I wrap my balm in food grade bags, and tie up with ribbon. I will give these to my friends and family as token presents this year as part of our goal to have a traditional homemade Christmas as much as possible.
