Make your own All Natural moisturizing salve
Isn’t just great to fool the greedy cosmetics industry and make your own really good salve for less than a buck?
I have really dry skin and need a good moisturizer. Oils just don’t give my skin enough and using fresh ingredients every day is just not realistic for me.
I need something that is easy, inexpensive and keeps for a long time. I got the inspiration to this salve on a market. I bought what was called lavender salve and it was the best moisturizer I had ever used.
I was about to call her to see where I could buy more when I happened to check the ingredients label. It had only 3 ingredients: bees wax, olive oil and essential lavender oil.
I decided to try and make my own. It took a while to get it right but in the end I did it.
This salve is absolutely brilliant!
- It has only 2 ingredients
- It has a long shelf life
- It doesn’t have to be stored in the fridge
- It only takes a couple of minutes to make
- And it is very EFFECTIVE
Skin care can not be more natural than this.
This basic salve is prefect on dry skin.
If you have eczema this is your daily moisturizer. It keeps the rash away and has no side effects.
It will last for a very long time since you only need to apply a very thin layer. There is no need to keep it in the fridge. Store it in a dark place and it will keep for a whole year.
I use it on my face, my hands and well my whole body. It’s also very good on my kids. When they where babies if they ever showed signs of dry skin I just applied this salve once of twice and their skin was perfect again.
You can get bees wax as small pellets in health food stores or larger chunks in crafts stores. I have a big chunk of course. It lasts forever.
3 tablespoons Bees wax
0,5 cup of jojoba oil or Organic extra virgin olive oil
1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)
Melt bees wax in a pot then remove from heat and add olive oil. Or put everything in an old cup a heat it in the microwave, about 1.3 min.
Stir quickly and add a few drops of essential oil.
Pour in a clean jar an leave to cool and stiffen.
If you a planning to use the salve on babies or small children then exclude the essential oil.
