killer bee propolis and skin care
3 mls propolis you have to get a good one not full of alcohol. Propolis in dried form is available on Amazon. I have a little bit left of a rare batch.
Red algae that is from a good source. I love red algae for the complexion. It brightens the skin and guess what, studies show that the red components in plants shield your skin further from the sun.
1/2 ounce bees wax
more or less on the olive
2 cups rich unfiltered olive oil
When I first started to make this I learned so much about propolis. It is rough and ready to serve but you must concede and do the prep. It needs to sit in heat and melt completely , low heat , in a water bath, and it needs to go clear and the essential oils are last and still, need to temper as the solution cools to a jelly.
Making balms is an art form.
