diy natural healing beeswax salve with Chios mastic & mandarin

Chios mastic & mandarin beeswax salve by Stella Crown
On today’s menu there is a healing, buttery salve that does... just about everything! It moisturizes chapped by the cold hands, it softens and heals chapped heels, elbows and knees, while also working as a body butter or as a night facial cream.
An ideal salve for our lips, that not only moisturizes but also mildly treats herpes. In addition it is appropriate for thermal burns and sunburn as well as wounds and abrasions, and it relieves itchiness caused by mosquito and other bugs bites. It soothes the cracked nipples of new mommies, treats dry skin on scalp and body, acts as an antiseptic and has super regenerative properties. Girls, keep in mind that it is also good for stretch marks 👌👌👌

This salve is appropriate for everyone and can also be used on the skin of children aged 5 and older.
