If you're looking for a simple easy swap for Vaseline, look no further.
Did you know that Vaseline is a byproduct from oil drilling? Do you really want that on your lips and skin?
Instead, make your own!
Seriously, making a Vaseline alternative could not be easier. You only need 2-3 ingredients to make it, that's it!
This easy alternative has so many uses. Just to name a few....
Moisturizes chapped lips
Removes eye make up
Soothes dry skin
Mix with salt or sugar to use as an exfoliant
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/4 cup Coconut oil
2 TBSP Beeswax
*Alternately, you can use 1/2 cup of either olive oil or coconut oil if you don't have both.
Fill a medium pot with water and add a glass bowl. Turn the stove to medium heat. Add your oils and wax. Allow the ingredients to melt completely. Pour into a container and let cool. Once cooled, stir to make a Vaseline consistency.
Makes approximately 4oz.
Super easy, right?
You can also customize your new salve with essential oils. Lavender is great for calming, while adding Eucalyptus can make it work like a vapor rub.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and find great uses for it!
