❄️❄️❄️Day 5 DIY Holiday Gift Ideas ❄️❄️❄️
🐝🐥🐴🦄Soothing Baby Balm 🐸🐤🐰🐮
This balm is super nourishing and easy to make. You can just use olive oil without the dried calendula flowers in it. I've done that and it is still creamy and lovely. 🌼Calendula flowers are known to be amazing skin soothers. So to take your product a notch further towards amazingness, infuse dried organic calendula flowers and organic olive oil on your windowsill for at least a few weeks to a month. Think about all of those calendula baby products you see on the shelf. Butt balms and baby skin soothers. There's a reason that they put calendula in the baby products.
On another note You could really use a different EO like lavender and Frank or Melrose and name it something like all-purpose salve, cuticle balm, cranky skin soother or gardener's skin relief.
🙊I think this would make an awesome gift for a pregnant friend or mom with a baby. You could pair it with a baby blanket, an outfit or an amber teething necklace!!!🐯
1 cup calendula infused olive oil
1 TBSP mango or Shea butter
1 1/2 TBSP Beeswax pellets
20-30 drops of your favorite essential oil in this whole batch. I used 20 Gentle Baby drops which smells divine.
-Melt the beeswax in a double boiler or mason jar placed into a pot of water. Once melted add the Shea or mango butter and stir in the olive oil. Let it cool slightly then add chosen essential oil.
-I like to stir with a wooden chopstick since it's easy to get and easy to dispose of.
Respect the chemistry and gentle natural frequency of these beautiful oils and they will treat you right. Store on the countertop knowing all things without preservatives have a life expectancy. I would say this would be about 2-3 months or store in the fridge. Enjoy!❤️💞💞
Add a cute label, some ribbon or jute string and you have a handmade gift. I get this mango butter, shea butter. Grab beeswax pellets yellow will impart a bit of color or white wont. And of course you need dried organic calendual flowers. Of course you get the essential oil on your own Young Living account!
