DIY Carrier Oil Stick

DIY Carrier Oil Stick for applying essential oils - Young Living

No need to carry liquid carrier oils to apply your essential oils when you can carry a carrier oil stick! This is one of my favorite essential oil accessories I like to keep handy. This was my lifesaver when traveling to Ecuador in March. Instead of carrying a bottle of liquid carrier oil, I took this along instead. Makes applying your essential oils a breeze! Like all other balms, this one is super easy to make and can also be used as a skin moisturizing balm as well.

You will need:


Place a 1 cup glass measuring cup (or double boiler) into a saucepan filled with water. Put the beeswax into the measuring cup and heat the beeswax on low-medium to medium heat until the beeswax is melted. Add almond oil and jojoba oil to the measuring cup and continue to heat until all the items are melted. Add shea butter and heat until melted. Stir constantly as they melt.

Once everything is melted, remove from the heat. Pour your balm into the twist-up tube and small .5oz tin and allow to cool. This recipe will make 3 ounces of carrier oil balm. I like to use a 2.5oz twist-up tube and a small tin (to keep in my purse when I’m on the go, instead of bringing the larger tube), but you can also use small or large lip balm tubes for the extra .5 ounce or adjust the recipe. The 2.5oz tube holds slightly over 2.5 ounces.

To use, apply carrier oil stick to skin, add essential oils and rub in.

Fun idea ~ Once you fill the 2.5oz twist-up tube, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the remaining balm, stir and then fill a .5oz tin or several lip balm tubes for super awesome lip balm.
