Natural Balm Base Recipe
A nutrient rich anhydrous balm. It has a soft texture that can be customised to create your own unique lip balm, foot balm, massage balm or chest balm.
|Castor oil||45%||Nourishing, soothes dry & chapped skin.|
|Coconut oil||20%||Rich in vitamins, highly protective.|
|Sunflower oil||18%||Moisturising, light consistency, stable.|
|Beeswax||15%||Protective, humectant & skin softening.|
|Vitamin E Natural||2%||Anti-oxidant, softening, soothes & cools.|
Step 1: Combine Carrier oils and Beeswax in glass vessel. Stirring gently with a spoon, heat to 70°C. Beeswax will have melted to a clear liquid.
Step 2: Slowly cool to approx. 55°C, add Vitamin E and mix thoroughly.
Step 3: Once mixed, pour balm into jars and allow to cool slowly to room temperature.
Please note: some re-melting could be required as the balm will semi-solidify easily, this will not damage the balm’s structure.
