At one time or another, everyone has used Vaseline for something; it has numerous uses and is incredibly versatile. The only downside with Vaseline is it’s made from petroleum, and putting petroleum based products on your skin just never feels like a good idea, but this doesn’t have to be a problem as I am going to show you how to make your own Vaseline with natural ingredients. All you need is beeswax and olive oil!

  • You will need 1 ounce or 1/8 cup beeswax, I recommend this organic beeswax which can also be used to make natural candles etc.
  • You also need 1/2 cup of olive oil, if you have extra virgin olive oil all the better, although not essential.
  • Add the beeswax and the olive oil to a pan on a very low heat. Once it has all melted, give it a good mix and then pour into jar or an empty lip-balm tin/container and leave it to set.
  • Once it has set, use as Vaseline!

That’s all there is to it! Enjoy your natural Vaseline.
