We have designed a three stage balm. We chose a balm because as it has no water in it, it needs no preservative. It is highly concentrated and a small pot is convenient to keep in your bag or have in your drawer or locker at work. A little goes a very long way and it is so simple to make and use. Being simple to use is important because then there is much more likelihood that you will continue to use it as your “actively pursued goal!
The basis of the balm is Part 1. Everything in this part is weighed on a small set of scales so you know you will be accurate and that it will work. We even weigh the oils as well as the solids. We work in percentages so that it is easier to increase or decrease your batch size accurately. When all three parts are combined, you will have 100g of product. If you want to make more at one time, simply double or treble the amounts, the percentage will remain the same but the volume will be different - you get the idea.
