Whoops! I accidentally released this post before I finished with it, so here is the full and complete post for those who receive the e-mail notifications of new blog posts.
Yesterday, I shared the Gentle Exfoliation Scrub that was created for Dallin’s itchy flaky arm and I promised I would show you the massage butter that I made for his arm. I like the Mary’s Elbow Cream, but I wanted to use Lanolin as well as some of the extracts to help Dallin’s skin.
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients except the extracts and essential oils into your microwave safe container. Microwave using short bursts of time, stirring every 20 to 30 seconds until all the ingredients have been melted. Do NOT microwave until the mixture is completely liquid as the mixture will be too hot to handle. The Beeswax will be the last ingredient to melt and if you are patient, simply stirring will melt the Beeswax. Pour into your containers and allow to cool. Try to not move the containers much until the cream has set to prevent accidental messes.
This recipe filled 11 of the Big Lip Balm Tubes.
This particular butter does not pass any pocket test as it is very soft but this works well on tender young skin because it does not take much heat to melt it. A perfect butter for the nightstand, desk, or bathroom.
