While beeswax and grape seed oil have anti-inflammatory properties, tea tree oil is anti-bacterial and antiseptic; add the astringency of lemon oil for a non-greasy spot ointment.
25g unbleached beeswax pellets
125ml grape seed oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
½ teaspoon tea tree oil
½ teaspoon lemon essential oil
Put the beeswax, grape seed oil and jojoba oil in a heat proof measuring jug, and place in a pan of simmering water .
