Personalised Herbal Balms
A balm is a soothing substance with a consistency somewhere between solid and liquid.
Herbal balms are simply infused herbal oils combined with a type of wax to thicken them into a solid state at room temperature. Herbal balms can contain finely ground or pulverised components of the herbs themselves. These balms are for treating local conditions; the effects target the area of the body on which they are applied.
My balms are made with a base coconut oil combined with raw powdered herbs and later combined with hemp oil and sesame oil. A lot of my balms I combine with beeswax at the end to form a sold balm. Some applications remain in a liquid (oil) state.
