This Is How You Make a Natural DIY Body Balm That Actually Works

If you are struggling with dry hands or cracked lips, this easy and satisfying 2 ingredients body balm recipe is just what you need. I really don't buy body balm anymore because I make my own, and trust me, it works like magic! 

I had actually shared this recipe a while back but it was worth a re-share! I use it whenever I feel like my skin and lips need some extra nourishment. This balm is such a soothing and calming product, really the best treat for your skin and your senses before going to sleep!


- 45 g / 1.58 oz of an oil of your choice (the oil makes 90% of the recipe) - you can also infuse this oil! check out the previous reel on how to make an oil infusion.

- 5 g / 0.17 oz beeswax (10%) or 3 g / 0.10 candelilla wax (6%)*

- Optional: up to 5 drops of essential oil of your choice (or up to 1%)


- Melt the wax and the oil in a water bath (bain-marie)

- Once the mixture is fully melted, add the optional essential oil and pour everything into a tin.

- Let solidify

*This amount of wax will make a really soft balm, so double up these amounts if you want to obtain a harder balm.
