Sometime last year I stumbled across this really neat blog entry about the benefits of using tallow on the skin—especially for aging skin. This tallow balm benefits from the addition of another awesome anti-aging, healing oil—rosehip. E, vitamin A and essential fatty acids which promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase and assists with cell regeneration. Lastly, a bit of beeswax ensures a good texture, and oil cut pore balm the face shop blend of anti-aging essential oils gives the final balm a boost in the scent department.
Melt the tallow, rosehip oil, and beeswax together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the essential oils. To use, massage into your face before going to bed. Thanks so much—you’re on the list! I’ll never do anything dodgy with your email address and you can unsubscribe instantly whenever you want.
Me, so I signed up for Patreon. Me continue to grow and expand, I’d be thrilled if you’d consider becoming a patron. This looks wonderful Marie, I want to try it too! Marie, is there any other EOs that can be used I.
I have some, but not all of the ones mentioned. I’m not sure when I will be able to the the ones I don’t have. I have an almost full 50 pound box of tallow. I have used some to make soap out of, but I have at least 40 pounds still sealed up.
And you can use the tallow straight, it’s just that it’s a bit firm at room temperature here, so the liquid oils help soften it a little as well as adding some extra punch. Excellent, I want to make this balm for my mom too! Thanks so much for this recipe! I just love tallow on my face! I bought some, but now am going to make my own!
I have mature skin, but with breakouts. I will try the oils you suggest. Right now my tallow has geranium e. I feel the geranium was a great choice. It smells much better than the lavender does when mixed with tallow! I’m thrilled to hear you’re already in love with tallow balm—enjoy your DIY version! I read this blog entry too about using tallow.
I put chopped tallow in the pot with water and let it come to a boil. I then let it cool completely. The tallow will be solid and rise to the top and the water is on the bottom. I take it out then repeat the process 3-5 times, The impurities stay in the water, You will notice that as you do this several times the water will be cleaner. This really makes it super clean and gets rid of the smell for me.
