Making your own health and beauty products is simple, frugal and healthy– this recipe has got to be one of THE easiest around !
With 2 ingredients…. and the approximately 2 minutes it takes to make; you can’t go wrong, not to mention the results are amazing. I use this as you would a ‘vaseline’ type product, however I LOVE it as a hand & foot lotion too– takes a minute to absorb into the skin and does a great job of relieving dry skin! I will often put it on before bed and let it really soak in overnight. I love this stuff!
Gather up one half pint canning jar, regular mouth lid ( I prefer the plastic ones for homemade goodies such as this) and whatever pan (stainless is best here, definitely no teflon) you will melt your ingredients in. I use a little 2 cup stainless measure ‘pan’ which makes it really easy!
1/2 C Olive Oil
1/8 C Beeswax
Pour these in your pan, melt on low heat until completely melted together, remove from heat.
Pour into your half pint canning jar
Just let it stand until cool and hardened up, then put your lid on and label. I label with the recipe when it will fit right on the label, and in this case, it sure does! That way, I (or my children) can make again, simply– the recipe is right there!
This is a perfect example of how absolutely simple, pure and frugal, making your own homemade health & beauty products can be.
