I had been reading about the benefits of beeswax~ 2 of my little grandsons have bouts of eczema..beeswax.. combined with other things seemed to be a nice add-on for calming the redness and itch..And who could resist having a little heart rubbed on him or her:)
So I went to the beekeeper..
I combined equal parts of beeswax..coconut oil and olive oil..and melted together..I did add some Lavender oil also..poured the delightfully scented warm liquid into silicone heart molds..and very soon..the little hearts became..hand rubs..leg rubs..anywhere rubs..
I brought one over to Oli~ and he let me rub it on his small beautiful toes..and the crook of his arm:)
So worth my making it just for that..and his little dear smile..he rubbed some on me too:)
I have to admit I like them also..:)
I gave one to Jacques..One to Oli..and I have one in use ..I put it on my hands and feet and face~
Feels great~I love to put little sockettes watching Downton Abbey or Parenthood:)... my tastes are varied.. :)at -6 F many would enjoy a blanket and sockettes:)
I used The Graphics Fairy graphics to make parchment paper wrappers..and to do the collage below~ Love Graphics Fairy graphics..:)
These are super easy to make..
I used ap 85 grams..of the Beeswax..Coconut Oil and EVOO.. with a few drops of Lavender essential oil~
It made 6 hearts.
Enjoy..I think they make such sweet Valentine gifts also~♥♥
Footnote..it thrilled me that Max came over a few days later and said:"you know what Oli has? "I have it too..and he pulled up the sleeve of his shirt..
I said..you must want a heart?
After all February is for ♥'s~
