How to make ….. Simple balm to use after waxing or plucking hair

Thank you Andrea for letting us use this post from Skin Bistro, do comment below if you give it ago we’d love to see pictures 🙂

I make this soothing balm in small batches for myself and use it after waxing or plucking hair.


  • 20g of apricot kernel oil
  • 2.5g of cocoa butter
  • 2.5g beeswax

to a small glass or stainless steel container and melt the mix using a double boiler method.  It’ll be quick, so as soon as it’s all melted, take the container ouf of the heat source.  Pour into a small glass jar. Don’t screw the lid on just yet.

Prepare your essential oil blend in another small glass or stainless steel container, mixing together:

  • 10 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops of German chamomile.

Get your melted mix and stir gently to cool it down.  The colour and consistency will begin to change once it’s starting to cool.

As the mix starts to solidify, add your essential oil blend, mixing well.  Leave it to cool completely, and harden, before you close the jar.  This will eliminate condensation inside the jar. You may also put the jar inside the fridge to cool it quicker.

After waxing legs, or plucking eyebrows, I rub an ice cube made of strong chamomile tea all over the affected area, and then apply this balm.  It works a treat!
