Herbal skin balms are a healthy and natural approach to skin care. I use herbs infused in olive oil, then add a blend of one or more base oils of coconut, grapeseed, castor & jojoba oil. I then add cocoa butter, beeswax and pure essential oils. All of these oils are naturally soothing by themselves, easily absorbed & won't clog pores. The organic herbal infusions & pure essential oils then add potency for each purpose I had in mind. The herbal properties are absorbed through the skin via the balm, are medicinal, aromatheraputic & the massaging action of applying the balm doesn't feel too bad either! It is a perfume with a purpose!
