I took a little break today from stitching and am playing in my kitchen. You may remember my soap making adventures in the past. In the last 6 months or so I started making salves and lotions. I came across one that I really like. In fact, both my husband and my 89 year old dad love it and use it daily. So I thought I’d show you a few photos.
Here we have my mix of natural oils with some beeswax melting on the stove.
Birds Eye view. Lol
The beeswax has melted and the essential oils have been prepared to go into the oils as soon as they’ve cooled down a bit. Some essential oils will cause the natural oils to harden quickly.
Here they’ve just been poured into tins…..
And this is how they look almost hardened.
Just a little disclaimer, I am not a doctor or pharmacist. In no way am I giving you any kind of medical advice. I’m just a gal playing with the natural things God has provided. I have to say though…my joints and muscles thank me for it! So does my family and it’s 100% natural.
Soon I’ll have to infuse some more oils. I make them from dandelions, cayenne, chamomile and other herbs and flowers. It has honestly been kind of fun and I’m always looking for new recipes.
So what have you been up to? Anything interesting?
