DIY: Homemade Seasonal Allergy Nose Balm
Serves: about 1 ounce
This homemade seasonal allergy nose balm really does work for those pesky allergies!
  1. Add a few inches of water to a skillet and place the skillet on your stove at medium low heat. Or if you are fancy and have a double boiler, use that :)
  2. Place a glass jar in the water and add your beeswax to the jar. Allow the beeswax to melt - this takes 15 or more minutes. Side note: Since anything with beeswax can be difficult to clean, I have a designated mason jar for all my beeswax projects. I also use a paper straw for stirring so I don't have to clean any beeswax coated utensils.
  3. Once the beeswax has melted, add the coconut oil and allow the mixture to melt, stirring occasionally.
  4. Once everything is melted and liquid, remove the jar from heat and add in your lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oils.
  5. Pour liquid into a tin or jar of choice and let harden, about 1 hour. This recipe makes about 1 ounce so I like using THESE tins. This recipe fills one of those tins.
  1. Apply the a bit of the nose balm to the base of your nose and nostrils throughout the day or whenever you need fast relief. You can also apply it to your cheeks and temples for further relief for itchy, watery eyes and sinus allergies.
