Aromatherapy balms

Posted on 26 September 2017


Easy aromatherapy treatment balms


Treatment balms are really easy to make and you can create different ones for different problems. Warming or cooling for muscle aches and pains, fresh ones for colds and coughs, hydrating for burns, cuts and bruises and anything else you can think of. In this blog post I will share three simple recipes you can easily make yourself with my instructions. They make lovely gifts as well, just add a label and a ribbon.

What do you need for simple treatment balm?

You need base oil, you can use just sunflower oil or any other vegetable oils you prefer. You can also mix different oils as you wish. You can also use infused (macerated) oils which give the extra power to your balm. You can buy them ready made or easily make your own. You will also need beeswax and the essential oils of your choice. You will need 50ml of base oils and 5-10g beeswax depending how hard you would want it.



  1. Measure the base oil in a separate measuring cup and add the essential oils to iit. Mix well.
  2. Boil water in a kettle and put the hot water in a small sauce pan
  3. Measure the beeswax and place it  in a melting pot over the sauce pan. 
  4. The melting point for beeswax is low, so there is no need to boil the water more.
  5. Add the base oil blend to the beeswax, mix well and let them melt completely 
  6. Pour the mix in glass containers and let the balm cool and set
