i made this balm for my sister after seeing it in a shop;
Here's the receipe :
- 4 tablespoons jojoba oil
- 4 tablespoons sweet almond oil
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon 1/2 shea butter
- 1 teaspoon beeswax
- 6 drops peppermint essential oil
- 6 drops citronella essential oil
melt everything but the EOs, then add them when it's cooled a bit, and put in a jar.

(as for the packaging, i'm in lack of jars so it's an old yoghourt jar with transparent film cover)

Thanks for sharing! I wouldn't have thought of mixing peppermint and citronella together. I'll have to try it.

Massage balm, right?
That means you can use it for massaging people?

I bet you could play around with the recipe by adding a bit more citronella and also sell it as a fancy bug repellent.

if in not mistaken both have antidepressant and anti inflammatory effects as well
