Skin Balm for Everything: Ultimate DIY eBook Bundle

How to make a healing and soothing skin balm/salve with coconut oil, olive oil, and lanolin. This makes a wonderful gift for someone you love or for yourself. Use after washing the dishes, to sooth cuts and scrapes, to soften dehydrated winter skin.
Homemade Skin Balm for Everything Recipe |

“Mom,” the voice carries into the kitchen as she walks through the doorway. She comes to me, hands on her cheeks, bits of pink flesh peeking through beneath soft knit mittens.

“It hurts.” Reluctantly she pulls her hands away to reveal painful kisses from the winds of winter that whip down our street as she makes her way to school each morning. A little too late, I gently rub a protective and healing layer into her aching skin having forgotten to do so before she left in the morning.

“Now, you have to remind me. Every morning before school. Every night before bed.” And I plant a kiss on her forehead before sending her off to play with her brothers.

This smooth and easy to rub in skin balm is the cure-all for any and all things. It works on dish-dry hands. It soothes nicks and scrapes. It’s the perfect cold weather salve for anyone who finds their skin in need of some tender love and care. It’s a combination of soothing essential oils and softening coconut oil and olive oil, with a bit of lanolin added in for softness and extra protection from the elements. We use it on everything from dry skin to bug bites, and a jar of this salve is always found in the cabinet of our bathroom, ready and waiting.

Healing Skin Balm



  • 2 tablespoons beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lanolin
  • 5 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 5 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops calendula essential oil
  • 5 drops chamomile oil or carrot seed oil


  1. In a double boiler, melt the beeswax and coconut oil just until liquid. Stir in the extra virgin olive oil, the lanolin, and the essential oils. Pour into a small jar and allow to solidify as it cools. Rub onto skin to use.
