Frankincense Body Balm Project
This Frankincense Body Balm is a fantastic hydrator. It’s perfect for extra dry areas of the skin, including hands, feet and knees.

Difficulty: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Four 4 oz. jars

 

Ingredients

Four 4 oz. Bail Jars

9 oz. Avocado Oil

3 oz. Kokum Butter

2 oz. Cera Bellina Wax

0.2 oz. Frankincense Essential Oil

Optional: Dropper

Instructions

  1. Chop any large chunks of kokum butter into small pieces using a sharp knife. This helps the butter melt faster.
  2. Add the avocado oil, kokum butter and cera bellina wax to a heat safe container. Place in the microwave and heat using 30-60 second bursts. If pieces of the butter remain, stir the mixture for about a minute so the hot oil melts the butter. Place back in the microwave if necessary. Be careful when removing the container from the microwave, as it may be hot.
  3. The mixture will most likely be very hot (160 ° F and above). The flashpoint of frankincense essential oil is 117 ° F. Some crafters believe the hot temperatures can "burn off" the scent. To be extra careful, you can wait until the mixture is below 117 ° F and add the frankincense essential oil. I recommend using a dropper so none of the oil is wasted.
  4. Stir completely, and pour the mixture into the bail jars. Allow it to cool and harden completely. To use, soften the balm with your fingertips and apply to the skin.
