Homemade balm

Homemade balm!! This is so easy to make. A little dab of the multipurpose balm is great for smooth skin, lips, nails and hair. It can also be used for wood and leather treatment. Simply melt 1 part beeswax with 5 parts olive oil. Pour into a jar and wait for it to set. It smells amazing too! For my vegan buddies, I’m yet to try vegan beeswax but looking forward to testing this out.

I see great potential for this balm. I’ve been looking for a non-coconut oil base to maintain its consistency throughout Australia’s fluctuating weather (0-44C / 32-111F). Preferably, something that can travel well, doesn’t melt on a warm day and isn’t rock hard in winter.

I’m excited to try this as a base for DIY sports remedial balm, deodorant and maybe even peppermint toothpaste!?
Travelling to the arid desert of Uluru & tropical rainforest of Darwin will be a great test for me in a few weeks.

What do you think?  Am I loco? Got any other uses for multi-purpose balm?
