Cuticle Salve Recipe

Cuticle Salve

1.3 oz White Beeswax
1.0 oz Olive Oil, Pure
0.7 oz Shea Butter
6 mL Vitamin E Oil
3 mL Calendula Extract (oil-soluble)
3 mL Carrot Extract (oil-soluble)
3 mL Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
2 mL Rosemary Essential Oil
12 Non-Stackable Clear Lip Butter Pots

5 on a plate

ONE: In a heat safe container, combine the Olive Oil and Beeswax and microwave until the Beeswax has melted. Be sure to use an appropriately-sized container; Beeswax has a high melting point and if you’re using glass, it will get quite warm (and as I found out a few years ago, possibly explode!)

Mixing Oils and Wax

TWO: Once the Beeswax has melted, add the Shea Butter and stir until melted. If the addition of the Shea Butter dips the overall temperature below about 145 degrees, stick the mixture back in the microwave for another 30 seconds or so, otherwise the beeswax will start to harden up again.

Adding Shea Butter

THREE: Add the Vitamin E Oil, Calendula Extract, Carrot Extract, Lavender Essential Oil and Rosemary Essential Oil to the mixture. Stir until well incorporated.

Adding Fragrance Oil

FOUR: Line up the Lip Butter Pots (sans lids) and pour the mixture into the pots. Allow the mixture to cool completely, then twist the lids on. Toss one in your purse or car for quick and accessible cuticle relief!

Pouring into Pots

What a quick and easy idea for a gift, or maybe just keep it for yourself. =)
