What you need

2 oz (55 g) Beeswax
3 oz (85 g) Shea Butter
4 oz (115 g) Olive Oil
10-15 drops of lavender essential oil

If you can not get hold of Shea butter, then substitute the 3 oz of Shea butter with 1 extra oz of beeswax and 2 oz of either a massage oil base like Apricot oil, or use Olive Oil.

Start by melting the beeswax and Shea Butter down in a double boiler method.

Once the beeswax is melted add all the oils together including the lavender oil.

Now add the mixture to small lip balm pots or miniature jam jars.

This recipe makes 9 0z (250 g) of solid headache relief balm.
