  • Combine everything except for the raw honey in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30-second increments for 2 minutes, until the oils and beeswax have completely melted. Alternatively, you can use a double boiler to create this mixture.
  • Whisk in the raw honey and 10-20 drops of the essential oil of your choice and immediately pour into a glass jar.
  • Let cool to room temperature before testing. If you would like to adjust the texture, re-melt the balm and add either more beeswax or more oil until the desired texture is reached.
