This easy DIY body balm smells just like Christmas and makes the perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays!
1/4 cup packed beeswax, grated.
1 tbsp shea butter (optional)
1 cup olive oil or mix (I used a combination of olive and grapeseed)
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
20–30 drops of Douglas fir essential oil. I used this one.
15–20 drops orange essential oil. I used this one.
Melt the beeswax in a double boiler with the shea butter if you are using it. Once it has melted stir in your olive oil. Take off the heat and stir in the vitamin E oil and the essential oils. Pour into small mason jars or body butter containers. (I got mine at Michaels)
*This makes a balm that is still soft. If you want it to be harder simply increase the amount of beeswax you use.
