We're well into winter and the days are getting pretty cold. In my home that usually means stuffy noses and colds. If you suffer from congestion or difficulty breathing, this "Breath Easy Balm" is a must have in the medical cabinet. Congestion is no fun and it can be triggered not only by the common cold, but also from allergies and irritants in the air. This is an easy diy balm and it is so useful. Compared with other well known brands, this is completely natural and safe.
1/3 c. Coconut Oil
2 tbsp. Cocoa Butter
1 1/2 tbsp. Beeswax Block Shavings/Pellets/Pastilles
20 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
5 drops each Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Tea Tree Oil
Using a double boiler, melt the coconut oil, cocoa butter and beeswax together, once they are melted, remove from heat and wait 2-3 minutes before adding the essential oils. Pour into containers and let cool.
Enjoy! Stay warm ;-)
