This recipe uses a combination of healing, skin nourishing oils and beautiful organic essential oils to help the skin along in the rejuvenation process. Apply this body butter to and around scars 2-3 times each day until the scar fades. Some scars could take a couple months to reduce in appearance, but keep at it and you'll see the improvement! One thing to note: Do not apply this product to open wounds. Start using it once the wound has developed a scab and is no longer exposed. You can also use it on old scars - they can take longer to heal, so don't give up on them. Of course, keep the blend away from mucous membranes.
What you'll need to make this recipe:
- 2 - 2oz. jars and 1 - 1oz. jar (or tin) OR 5 - 1oz. jars OR 1 - 5 oz. jar (however you want to split it up is fine, as long as you have a total of 5 oz. between your containers)
- avocado oil
- tamanu oil
- baobab oil
- shea butter
- Veriditas Botanicals' Scar Treatment & Prevention
- glass stirring rod
- pyrex glass measuring cup
- kitchen scale
- medium saucepan
- Bring a couple of cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. The pan doesn't need to be full - just enough water to reach about halfway up your glass measuring cup. We're going to use this as a double boiler. (Note: This is a great time to sterilize your jars in the boiling water. Then they can dry on the counter while you make your recipe.)
- Measure out 1 ounce each of the beeswax, avocado oil, tamanu oil, baobab oil, and shea butter. Add them to your glass measuring cup and gently set the cup in your saucepan of boiling water. Reduce to a low boil and keep there until the beeswax is fully melted.
- Once the beeswax is melted, remove the glass measuring cup from the pot of water. (CAREFUL! Use a potholder - the glass will be hot!)
- Gently stir the mixture with your glass stirring rod.
- Add 1 bottle (5ml) of Veriditas Botanicals' Scar Treatment and Prevention to the mixture and stir gently for a minute or so until well incorporated.
- Pour your finished recipe into your containers, gently set the cap on each jar (don't worry about screwing the caps on at this time), and leave them where they are until they have fully set.
- Add your label and enjoy!
