What You'll Need
- 2 Tbsp Beeswax Pellets
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil (try Nature's Lab Organic Coconut Oil)
- 30 Drops Paradise Springs Digestive Blend Essential Oil
- 4oz tin jar
- Wooden Sticks for Stirring
- Heat-Safe Measuring Glass or Bowl
How to Make
Add the beeswax to a heat-safe measuring glass.
Using the double-boiler method: Heat 1-2 inches of water in a saucepan over medium heat, bringing water to a simmer. Place the heat-safe glass with beeswax directly into the water to gently melt the beeswax. Stir occasionally. This process will take approximately 15 minutes.
Add the coconut oil to the measuring glass with the melted beeswax, stirring gently (do not remove from boiler). Once melted, add the olive oil and continue to stir over medium heat. Stir until combined.
Once all ingredients are melted, remove the measuring glass from heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
Once fairly cool, add approximately 40 drops of Paradise Springs Digestive Blend to the mix, stirring with a heat-safe spoon or stick.
Pour salve into a 4 ounce container jar and allow to cool until hardened before putting on the lid. This process may take a few hours.
Use the Digestive Blend Tummy Salve both topically and aromatically. To receive all the benefits of this calming salve, gently apply to stomach area and rub in, then cup hands over mouth to inhale.
