DIY Lavender Mint Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

3 oz. lavender & mint infused jojoba oil
1 oz. natural beeswax
1 ml GMO-free vitamin E oil
1.5 ml lavender essential oil (optional, if you’d like more scent)

Instructions:

To create this lavender mint balm recipe you’ll to begin by first making your infused oil. You do this quickly by combining your herbs – in this case lavender flowers and mint –  in a small saucepan and covering with the jojoba oil. (Feel free to substitute another carrier oil of your choice.) Set the heat on warm or the lowest setting and allow to “stew” for 3-4 hours. Alternately, you can fill a pot about 2/3 of the way full with water and then place a mason jar with your herbs and oil into the water over low heat. (More on this here.)

Once you’ve infused your oil, strain it through cheesecloth. It’s now ready to use.

Using a digital scale weigh out the beeswax and melt in double boiler. Then weigh out the lavender and mint infused oil and stir into the melted beeswax. (Keep your leftover oil infusion for future projects by keeping sealed and storing in a cool, dark location.)

Next, use graduated transfer pipettes to measure out the vitamin E and, if desired, the lavender essential oil. Stir into the liquified beeswax and oil mixture then pour into glass salve jars or tins. Allow to cool completely then use as desired wherever your skin needs a little extra love!

Want to mix this natural balm recipe up a bit more? Try infusing the lavender flowers with lemon balm (another mint), lemongrass or even lemon verbena. Or add 1ml of lemongrass or lemon balm essential oil into the balm recipe.
