This fantastic balm took awhile for some of us to describe. It is not notably oily or wet. It is a very waxy balm. When you first apply it on your skin, it is very smooth and creamy. As you continue to rub it in your hand slips then is griped by the balm. When you are completely done rubbing it in, there is a smooth, light resistance to the skin. One gal said “It feels very dewy.” This would make a great therapy or massage balm. We all agree, this interesting balm is a must try.
Here are the ingredients you will need.
Here is the recipe in percentages. This will allow you to adapt the recipe size to your needs.
Here is the recipe in grams. It will make approximately 530 grams.
Weigh all of the ingredients into a microwavable container except for the Liquid Germall Plus. Heat until the all of the ingredients have melted. Using the immersion blender, mix until completely blended. Allow the solution to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit stirring occasionally. Add the Liquid Germall Plus and stir well. At this point you can fragrance and color the body balm. Then dispense the balm into containers. I used 1oz jars for this balm.
Should I add more color to this balm? Do you like waxy butters? I want to hear your opinions.
