DIY Lanolin Healing Salve
Soothe and protect your skin with this DIY lanolin healing salve recipe. With its moisture locking abilities your skin will feel healthier than ever!
Servings: 4 ounces
- 2 tbsp 100% pure lanolin
- 2 tbsp beeswax
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp cocoa or shea butter
- 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
- 25 drops lavender essential oil
- 20 drops tea tree essential oil
- 15 drops frankinsence essential oil
First begin by measuring out the lanolin, beeswax, cocoa butter and coconut oil into a glass bowl (I use a glass measuring cup).
Make your own double boiler with a pot of boiling water and place the glass bowl and mixture inside. Watch the video for a visual demonstration!
Melt on medium heat and stir frequently. Once everything is 100% melted then remove from heat. Be careful not to burn yourself on hot steam!
Allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes and then you can add the vitamin E and essential oils.
Give everything a good thorough stir and pour into your container of choice. I love using aluminum tins or mason jars.
Allow the healing salve to harden up completely and then use as needed. It typically takes a couple of hours.
This recipe’s intended use is for adults only. If you are using this for a child then either leave out the essential oils or dilute much further.
My DIY lanolin healing salve has a pretty strong tea tree scent. If this bothers you then feel free to use less.
Please ALWAYS use a good quality essential oil. Do your own research and use your best judgement. I have used Young Living Essential Oils for the last few years and have seen great results.
