3 Ingredient All Natural Body Balm | Dr. Bronners
Clean. Natural. actually Good.
Ya’ll I LOVE me some Pinterest recipes and DIY’s. I get absolutely lost in all of their goodness. Isn’t it amazing, how we are able to share our trials and experiences for others to inspire and try?
I could go on forever about my love for sharing honest to goodness things—instead I’ll share my insanely simple 3 ingredient all natural body balm. I’ve used it as body butter, nipple cream while nursing my two girls, chapstick, and mostly diaper cream for my littles!
I’ll have to admit—I’m definitely guilty of going through blog posts, scrolling down to the ingredient list and heading to the kitchen to make some beautiful messes!
There’s a reason, hear me out…I feel as though recipes at-hand are crippling people’s natural ability to retain and remember kitchen sciences. Paying zero mind to consistencies and measurements by easy provision. Same applies with food recipes!
I seriously used to need a recipe for everything guys and have truly made it a point to mastered the science! Join me!
The kitchen is such a fun place and I enjoy playing with different textures, consistencies, and flavors. I’d love to encourage you to do the same with just the knowledge of your ingredients and taking charge of your intuition to make some incredible, long-lasting balms. The catch? It’s insanely good for your vessel and you’ll learn so much about yourself and your health in the meantime!
Coconut Oil- Hydrates and helps to improve skin elasticity and collagen production. Coconut oil is also known for its anti-aging properties. Coconut oil has anti-oxidants such as Vitamin E and Vitamin A, which help to slow down the aging process and may help to reduce damage
Shea Butter- having high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins making shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin
Beeswax-sential in fighting chapped skin and bacterial infections that tend to affect us most in the dry, winter months. Beeswax forms a protective wall by sealing in moisture in our skin without smothering and clogging up the pores.
3 Ingredient All Natural Body Balm
2 tbsp shredded Beeswax or beeswax pellets
1/3 cup Organic Coconut Oil
3 tbsp raw Shea Butter
(Optional) Essential Oils of choice, jojoba oil, almond oil, etc. [Apply once cooled]
Fill saucepan with water for boiling
Place glass mason jar into or bowl over saucepan.
Add your ingredients for melting (minus optional additional oils), stirring occasionally until liquid. I like to add according to how quickly each ingredient dissolves i.e beeswax, shea, coconut.
Remove and let cool.
Add optional oil ingredients or carefully pour oil into your desired glass container
A little goes a long way with this wonderful All Natural Body Balm, I hope you guys love it!
