Homemade Vaseline

When we have a cold and one very runny stuffed up nose there isn't anything better than a nice smear of petroleum jelly across the sore, red, chaffed spots.
Well, except the petroleum part.
Lucky for all of us, it turns out that a homemade, all natural version of "Vaseline" is super easy to whip up! Here's all you need:
Homemade Vaseline
  • 1 ounce beeswax (around 1/8 c. a little more if you want it softer)
  • 1/2 c. olive oil
Mix the ingredients together in a saucepan and heat on a very low heat until the beeswax has melted. While it's warm, pour into a jar or another container. Use as you would Vaseline! This recipe made enough to put in a little jelly jar. Oh and the little black flecks in mine are Vanilla Essential Oil. I was trying something's good either way!
