Natural, Vegan Nipple Cream (Or Soothing Salve)
Lauren Spicer (Grant) & Vanessa Grant grew up in a house where their father would regularly suggest "salve" to cure any cut/scrape/rash or irritation. We were never quite sure what he was referring to but were always provided with antibiotic ointments and a few natural remedies to cure whatever ailed us. So whether you want to call this cream, lotion, balm or salve, it is an outstanding a cure-all remedy. We adore it as an all natural nipple balm but it can also be used to help reduce scarring, heal small scrapes, cuts and chafed skin.
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup shea butter
1/4 cup beeswax

Place olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax in a mason jar. Place the mason jar in a saucepan that has 2 inches of water in it to act as a double boiler. Heat over medium-high heat until the oils and beeswax have melted together completely. Add the essential oil and place in a container to cool.
