1 oz. Beeswax Pastilles
2 oz. Sweet Almond Oil
30-36 drops Eden’s Garden Breathe Easier Synergy Blend Essential Oil


Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out the beeswax pastilles in a glass measuring cup. Melt beeswax in the microwave at reduced power, or in a double boiler, until melted. Once thoroughly melted, carefully remove from the microwave using a pot holder and place back on the scale. Measure out the sweet almond oil and mix well. Finally stir in the breathe easier essential oil blend.

Now slowly pour the breathe easier salve into containers of your choice. This homemade salve recipe will yield approximately ten 1/3 oz. lip balm pots. (As with any product, do not use if you are sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients and discontinue use immediately if irritation occurs.)

Since listing ingredients on smaller containers is difficult, I opted to package my salve inside 3″ x 4″ Clear Zipper Poly Bags which are much easier to label. I then hand drew my own labels to add a special handmade touch, printed them onto sticker paper and then affixed them to the bags and tucked the salve inside each one.
