Daisy Bruise Balm


๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟSOO after a quiet week mostly doing NOT a lot, today I had a chance to get out and pick some DAISIES to start off my daisy bruise balm that Iโ€™m keen to make.๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟI picked a good handful from a plentiful area and let them wilt a bit in the sun. Just by chance most of mine had short stems.๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟONCE these had wilted I popped some oil over them to the top using an old jam jar and left them on my windowsill, the jar will need to be shaken everyone once in a while before draining off the oil in a couple of weeks.๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟYOU then add bees wax to make a balm. I have some bees wax but I might use coconut oil – Iโ€™m thinking I drain off the oil, heat up the bees wax/ coconut oil and then pour this over the mixture to make the balm.๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟHAVE a go! Ps. I used sunflower oil to pour over the daisies but not sure it matters much. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

๐Ÿ THIS recipe is a mix of quite a few I have seen on the internet/ Facebook/ Pinterest๐Ÿ
