Udder Balm

Udder Balm Recipe

This DIY udder balm is based on a closely guarded recipe from my Uncle Roy in Minnesota. It works well on cow and goat udders but also works great on hands!

  1. To make the udder balm, melt the wax and oils in a double boiler. Once they are all melted, add the honey.
  2. It will want to clump and solidify due to the honey being cooler than the oils and wax. No worries, just keep stirring and it will blend in quickly. The honey may want to sink to the bottom, and that's ok. You can work it in as it cools.
  3. Take the balm off of the heat and add the essential oils. Mix well.
  4. As it starts to cool, it will harden on the edges. Scrape it off the edge of the bowl or pot and keep stirring. When you stir as it cools, it will incorporate the honey into the balm, and not let it stay on the bottom. You can also whisk it to form a lighter feeling whipped butter type consistency.
  5. When it is all done, transfer it into a wide mouth jar. This makes it easy to dip your hands into.
