MATERIALS NEEDED:

2 ounce tins (2)
4 TBSP beeswax pastilles
4 TBSP jojoba oil
2 TBSP shea butter and a grater
2 TBSP argan oil
10 drops of vitamin E oil
50 drops of Cedarwood essential oil
Double boiler
Wooden toothpick
2″ diameter glossy clear Avery labels 22825™ (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

– Wipe out the tins with a damp cloth. Allow them to dry completely.
– Combine the beeswax pastilles, jojoba oil, shea butter, argan oil, and vitamin E oil in the top of your double boiler. Heat until just melted.
– Remove the top of the double boiler from the heat.
– Drop the essential oil into the wax/oil mixture, then stir with a wooden toothpick.
– Pour the hot wax/oil mixture into clean tins.
– Allow the tins to harden completely (about 2 hours).
– Design a fun label for your tins. Try customizing a free Avery® template which makes labeling quick and easy!

To use, scoop a small amount of beard balm onto fingertips and rub between hands to melt and warm. Massage the beard balm into the beard while skin is damp. If too much is applied and the beard appears to glisten, simply wipe excess away with a soft towel.

Fibromyalgia and Essential Oils

Well for some time now, its been a bit of a battle….. One that I quite frankly REFUSE to lose! I have had a few different health diagnoses that have made me do some reassesment! One of those happens to be Fibromyalgia. Let’s just say that I went from a skeptic to a realist in a very quick hurry!

Now being that I am also a christian gal who believes in staying positive and seeing silver linings, I took this diagnoses in stride. That does not mean that physically things are easy, it means that even on the toughest days there is always some small positive to find and focus on!

I am an avid learner as well and will likely be the great grandmother that decides to go to University for her masters or some such crazy thing 🙂 I am pretty big on a combination of natural and western medicine being a great compromise. I am always seeking new solutions, new fixes to make a day better and to help with the fatigue associated with the Fibro.

Enter Essential Oils into my life! Today’s new creation has been a wonderful, invigorating blend of Lavender, Orange and Peppermint! It has put a happy in my step and I am hopeful that some of you regardless of your personal health situation, may find it uplifting, motivational and peaceful!

Let me know your feedback, it would be super appreicated! Love to meld minds over things like this and I look forward to your comments and conversation!
