Method

After grating your beeswax, add it to a bowl or jug double-boiler style on a very low heat.

Add the olive oil and allow the beeswax to melt into the oil, stirring occasionally (this process will take 6 - 8 minutes).

Once the beeswax has melted, take off the heat and allow to cool slightly then whisk in your essential oils.

Pour the mix into a dry storage container and allow it to set.

Use as you would whenever colds and flu hit the family.

This remedy is not suitable for pregnant women, or children under 2 years of age. Eucalyptus oil in particular, can cause dangerous neural reactions in babies and toddlers.
