  1. Begin making your boo boo stick by melting beeswax over a double boiler (I used a glass pyrex measuring cup in a saucepan of boiling water)

  2. Add in sweet almond oil and hazelnut oil and return to liquid
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly
  4. While still liquid, measure in essential oils and stir well
  5. Pour carefully into 2 ounce paperboard containers, or a 4 ounce jar

  6. Allow mixture to cool at room temperature, then cap and store in a cool, dry, and dark location.


To Use

Rub a small amount on bug bites or scrapes several times daily for relief. You can also use this boo boo stick on irritated/itchy or even dry skin for relief. If any irritation occurs, stop using.
