Beeswax Balm

Personal care products made of natural plants and herbs give a high level of helpful nutrients to the skin. They nourish, replenish, and rejuvenate. By contrast, synthetic personal care products give no nourishment, and often contain ingredients that are known or suspected carcinogens, such as artificial colors and formaldehyde.

  • 2.5 ounces olive oil (substitute grapeseed oil if you have oily skin)
  • 1/2 ounce pure beeswax
  • 12 drops grapefruit seed extract
  • 4 ounces distilled water

Combine the oil and beeswax in a double boiler. (If you don’t have a double
boiler, place the oil and beeswax in a small pan set inside a larger pan
containing boiling water, on the stove.) Once the wax is melted, remove from
the heat, add water, and mix with a hand or electric mixer until creamy. Stir in the
grapefruit seed extract, and place in a glass jar with a screw top.

Makes: 1/4 cup

Shelf Life: 1 year

The local beekeepers I get honey from gave me a MOUND of beeswax when I asked for a little bit! I make skin ointments, waterproof gourds, and seal shitake plugs with it.
