THESE DIY SALVES & BALMS MAKE PERFECT GIFTS!

hi everyone my name is Kelsey and my name is Becky and we’re the star girls we’re back with another video idea for a DIY Christmas week series this one is yet another one that can be really pricey online and we’re gonna show you how to do it for that cheap cheap Oh actually remember we were doing that series we were getting our makeup done and then the makeup artist totally recommend this like a little bomb serum um I bought it but it was like fifty dollars why but I like really liked it when she used it on me so I was like this is solely worth it what was it for uh you can use it on your lips it’s like a bomb just like the thing we’re making today especially the moisturizing one and gave us what the ingredients are they’re like the exactly the same as wax they are oil so if you guys haven’t figured out already we are gonna show you how to make a DIY solve ourselves however you want to say it or bombs yeah so many fun words for this thing so basically these can be used to moisturize but also to soothe different problems that you might have or somebody that you want to give it to you my house so we’re making a couple different kinds today one is more first skin and lavender is really good for skin and healing skin so you can use that essential oil in your salad or balm also pepper and cayenne we’re using in a muscle ache balm yep and this one’s right music heats up so the warmth is really nice on muscles and another ingredient you could try mixing in is peppermint because performance really cooling it helps to like soothe if you have headaches raining that’s hot so you want to cool it down it’s fun to play around with ingredients like that yes but let’s get started with the ones that we are tackling today so our first salt is a moisturizing style and this is perfect for combating their really cold dry winters that we experienced here in Canada yes which I’m sure a lot of people out there to also experience in different parts of the world so to make this you’re going to want to pick up these ingredients coconut oil shea butter some grated beeswax and avocado oil or you could just use regular olive oil and if you’re planning to make this for a gift make sure you pick up a measuring cup or a container that you’re only gonna use for making these types of things because the waxes and the oils can leave a permanent residue on the containers that you might not want to cook with and of course you’re using a glass measuring cup as well as other glass tools because we’re gonna be heating up don’t use plastic add three tablespoons of grated beeswax to the measuring cup create a double boiler by adding some water into a larger pot and then placing a measuring cup or bowl inside and heating the water we used a glass measuring cup that we had just because we use this specifically for DIYs and we can place it in there and not worry about anything happening to it or melting it because it’s class let the beeswax fully melts and then add half a cup of avocado oil 2 tablespoons of shea butter 1/4 cup of coconut oil once everything is fully melted together you honestly shouldn’t need to stir that much it kind of just blends nicely but you can stir it if you want take that out from your double boiler and then add in your essential oils you can use whatever essential oil that you want but if you want to use lavender that is really good for the skin and then you’re gonna want to pour yourself into a giftable container we have these really cute tins we’ll link you guys some options below but you can also use mason jars as a pretty standard one our second self is a heating saw and this is great for achy muscles to make this heating salv you’ll need to go pick up the following coconut oil grated beeswax cayenne pepper ground ginger ground black pepper rosemary essential oil avocado oil or olive oil again start with a measuring cup in a larger pot of water add in two tablespoons of grated beeswax 1/4 cup of coconut oil 1/4 cup of avocado oil or olive oil 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper 2 teaspoons of ground ginger 2 teaspoons of pepper stir them all together and let them melt so next add something to strain the mixture to the top of a separate container and pour the mixture on top so we tried using a standard coffee filter at first but that didn’t strain it very well it didn’t seem to drip through fast enough we then had to switch to a fine fabric that we just owned for previous DIYs and that worked perfectly yeah now I’ve also heard that pantyhose works amazing for this make sure that they’re new yeah but you could try that as well from the dollar store and here’s what all the chunky ingredients looks like that we strained out you can add the container back into the hot water if you find a mixture has cooled too quickly add in 20 drops of rosemary essential oil or really whatever essential oil you want but rosemary is great for this one and pour it into your little giftable containers so to make these super cute and giftable we use an old-school label maker to write on the side of them what they’re gonna do for you aches relief moisturize they won’t cause a total relieve and then we wrap them with some holidays wine [Music] so to actually use these selves you just need to rub your hands in them to warm them up a little bit and you should turn into a super moisturizing consistency and then you can put it on any problem area that’s like dry skin or if you have sore muscles sometimes I take out like the solid form and put it on the back of my hand and then I warm it up there and then again apply it wherever you need to yeah super easy we hope you guys enjoyed learning how to make these the best thing is that a lot of the base ingredients are similar so once you buy them in bulk you can make a ton of different versions of this make sure you guys tune in to our other videos throughout all of gift week we have so many fun ideas that are affordable and easy to do I can’t you love them yes then if you like this video make sure that you give it a like if you love it make sure you sub it we’ll see you next time bye guys [Music]
