Just a little heads up… I find it easier to decorate the tube first, using simple duct tape, labels or blingy jewels.
Using a double boiler (or a sauce pan with an oven-safe glass bowl) combine and melt all ingredients EXCEPT essential oil over medium heat. Once liquefied, use a pipette to put the balm in the containers, making sure to fill them past the ‘pointy part’. Working quickly, add your desired oils to the liquid balm and gently mix with a toothpick, topping off if necessary. Balm will shrink as it cools. Allow to cool and harden completely before placing a cap on it.
For a Christmas-ey flavor add any of these for a yummy balm and know that nothing that ends up consumed is bad for your body:
1 drop cinnamon, 2 drops Stress Away
2 drops grapefruit, 1 drop spearmint
1 drop peppermint, 1 drop Stress Away
1 drop peppermint, 1 drop orange
The combo possibilities are pretty endless… That’s all there is to it. No need to consume whale parts, poisons or petroleum…I promise!
It’s going to be the BEST Christmas yet!
