Homemade Honey Hand Balm

Our rich Honey Hand Balm is easy to make, does wonders for dry skin, and has multiple uses other than a hand balm. Use it as lotion, hair conditioner, or cuticle cream to lock in moisture for an all-day luxurious feel during those brittle cold months. It can even help to soothe a sunburn after a pool day in the summer!

You’ll need:

½ c coconut oil
¼ c almond oil
5 tbsp beeswax pastilles
1 tbsp shea butter
1 ½ tbsp Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey
10-20 drops of lavender essential oil
8-ounce glass jar, or several small tins with lids

Combine all ingredients except the honey and essential oils into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30-second intervals for two minutes, or until all ingredients have melted. Mix in the honey and essential oils and immediately pour into the jar. Let cool to room temperature.

To adjust the texture, melt the balm again and add either more beeswax or more essential oils.
