It’s Back-To-School week and we’re thinking about all the wonderful ways genuine essential oils come to the rescue for everything from immune support to the inevitable scrapes, cuts, bumps & bruises!
Older children may carry Grammie Di’s Owie Salve to school in their back-pack as their “recess boo-boo” go-to.
This Do-It-Yourself ‘recipe’ makes about 3 oz. total – and the consistency of the “balm” or “salve” is suitable for small P.E.T. plastic or glass jars, salve tins, lip balm tubes, or “squeeze tubes”.
1 Tablespoon beeswax
2 Tablespoons organic unrefined raw Shea Butter
1/2 teaspoon pure vitamin E oil
1/4 teaspoon pure jojoba oil (optional)
2 drops pure vegetable glycerine (optional)
2 drops Young Living Patchouli essential oil (optional)
- Gather & measure ingredients
- Melt beeswax, Shea butter, and Coconut oil in a dry glass jar or mason jar sitting in the top of a double boiler in a couple inches of water – OR melt them in a dry glass measuring cup sitting in a saucepan with an inch of simmering water.
- Stir with a stainless steel spoon or glass stir stick, until the beeswax is completely melted. Remove the glass jar or measuring cup from the heat.
- Stir in the vitamin E oil, optional jojoba oil & vegetable glycerine, and stir in the genuine Young Living essential oils.
- If the mixture begins to set up before you’ve finished adding all the ingredients, place it back into the hot water temporarily to gently melt it again.
- Once the essential oils are stirred in, carefully pour the liquid into your containers of choice.
- Allow to cool completely before labeling. Use permanent marker to write on labels.
- To use: Teach your child to apply a tiny amount of the ointment to a scrape, bruise, bump, or irritated skin skin and put the lid back on tightly.
- Keeps well for the entire school year!
