Make Your Own Natural Healing Balms

Jeremiah 8:22 "Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?"

The Balm has been around since ancient times. Since the beginning of time as we know it, a poultice or slave or balm have been made with nature's ingredients to sooth wounds, pain, and infection. Today we go to the store and grab a tube of who knows what and put it on our precious skin. Why not make your own balms for pennies that are safe and effective. I feel like a medicine woman this week bringing the Balm of Gilead to our little family. These balms use antibacterial foods like coconut oil, olive oil, and raw honey along with some of my favorite essential oils.

Wart Balm
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 oz Beeswax
20 drops frankincense oil
30 drops oregano oil
(Contact me to learn about the best essential oils!!)


Melt coconut oil and beeswax until just melted. Add the oils. Pour into Lip Balm Jars and allow to harden. Apply several times a day to wart. If you do not see results, add an extra drop of oregano to each treatment.

Ouchie Balm
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1 oz Beeswax
1 T raw honey (I used Manuka)
10 drops melaleuca (tea tree)
10 drops lavender

Melt coconut oil and beeswax until just melted. Add the honey, stir to dissolve. Then add essential oils. Pour into Lip Balm Jars and allow to harden. Apply to cuts, burns, and scrapes. Anything you would use Neosporin for. Also great for rash or dry, chapped skin.



Bum Balm
2/3 cup Coconut oil
1/3p olive oil
2 oz  Beeswax
4 Cocoa ButterWafers
30 drops lavender
15 drops myrrh
Melt the oils and the beeswax. Then add the cocoa butter and stir until it is melted. Allow to cool slightly, then add the lavender and Myrrh. Pour into containers and store. Apply to baby's bottom for rash.

My other favorite balms are those made for chapped lips. These are so luxurious and taste good too! It is best to use expeller pressed coconut oil for these so as to avoid the coconut taste...unless you want that.


 


Lip Balm
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 oz Beeswax
1-2 drops Vitamin E-Oil
10-15 drops lemon or peppermint oils

Melt the coconut oil and beeswax. Add the vitamin E oil and the essential oils. Stir to combine.
Pour into Empty Lip Balm Tubes . Makes 8-10.

Chocolate Orange Lip Balm
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 oz Beeswax
4 Cocoa Butter Wafers

    1. Wendy, I was in Lincoln and York doing some Essential oils classes and we happened to pass this sign in Gilead. I made my hubby pull over so I could take some pictures. I am in Oklahoma, so it is quite a trek to Gilead. :)
