Winter Itch Salve

When the temperatures drop and the snow starts falling Mr Chainsaw aka the hubby gets the winter itch. We have tried all sorts of lotions and salves but nothing worked til I started making my own. Now he asks for it every winter and it really helps keep the itch away.

4 Tablespoons grated beeswax
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil (can be infused with lavendar)
4 capsules Vitamin E oil
20 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops tea tree oil

Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water and bring to the boil. In the top, combine to beeswax, coconut oil and olive or almond oil and vitamin E oil. Allow to melt and stir to combine. Add the essential oils and stir again.
Pour into container and allow to cool completely before closing.
