  1. Combine all ingredients except essential oil and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (if using) in a small glass beaker or measuring cup.
  2. Gently heat until the oils and waxes are completely melted and liquid.
  3. Add essential oils and tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (or replacement oils). Blend with a small whisk or mini mixer until the balm is well mixed and begins to thicken.
  4. Transfer to pot or cosmetic container of choice. Makes enough for a 1-oz jar ♥


Although honey is unlikely to cause allergic reactions, if you’re allergic to pollen or other bee-related products, use honey on your skin with caution.

Lanolin is another potential allergen. If you are allergic to wool, do not use products containing lanolin.

Topical chamomile may cause allergic reactions in those sensitive to plants in the Asteraceae family.

I recommend glass containers for storing homemade lotions and potions. Glass doesn’t leach chemicals and it’s easier to clean/sterilize after the product is used up and you’re ready to refill.

If you do choose to use a plastic container, be aware that essential oils tend to react with plastic, so even if you can get it “clean,” your container will likely not be reusable.
