“Un-Petroleum Jelly” Recipe

By Savvybrown @savvybrownblog

A friend of mine has a new fabulous blog called Homeaide Good that is chock full of recipes and diy ideas. As a gift, she recently made me a version of her “Un-Petroleum Jelly” and I’m in LOVE with this stuff!. I have made my own Whipped Shea Body Cream in the past, but this is lighter and absorbs quicker. Here’s how to do it…

Homeaide Good’s Custom ”Un-Petroleum Jelly” Recipe

  • Combine base oil (oilve, coconut, almond, whatever you like), shea butter and beeswax in a medium sized pot over medium heat until the wax is melted
  • Transfer mixture to a heat safe container
  • If you like you may stir in 5 drops of your favorite essential oil. (I like lavender, lemon balm and sweet orange).

A little of this stuff goes a long way! I’ve used it on my feet, elbows and legs, even on the ends of my hair after twisting!
