The Everything Balm

I’ve been on the hunt for a beauty product that will do just about everything – and I’ve made it.  All you need is 4 ingredients for this amazing balm!  It’s made out of olive oil, argan oil, coconut oil, and beeswax and can do so much more!  If you don’t have any of the oils, simply replace it with another.  Since this product does not contain water, it lasts a long time.  Also, you can customize this balm anyway you want by just adding essential oils and playing around with the oils.  Maybe replace an oil with rosehip oil to plump the skin, or add a few drops of lavender oil to help  eczema.

These are the ways I use it:

  1. A swipe on the lips for lip balm
  2. Smooth on face for an instant moisturizer
  3. Rub hands together and comb through your hair with fingers for shiny hair
  4. Shower gel: spread on skin before shower for soft skin
  5. Hand cream

I put the balm in a small jar, and carry it everywhere!

    That is a great recipe. I have also used Jojoba oil to make the balm extra luxurious. A word of caution: add essential oils you don’t mind tasting if you are going to apply on lips (like peppermint, orange peel, and lavender) and add it when liquid starts to solidify. Adding essential oil to hot oil will cause it to vaporize if it has a low boiling temperature. Kudos on the start of a cool blog!
