Melt oil and beeswax in pan, add essential oils. Pour into your container. The salve will harden in 10 to15 minutes. If too soft, re-melt and add more beeswax. If too hard, re-melt and add more oil.

Vicks Vaporub works great on sore muscles and dry skin. I used it for back pain. Also great on dry skin on feet, at night rub in and sleep with white cotton socks. Amazing how soft dry spots become. Be sure not to use on open sores.

I tried the Vicks for the Bulldog who licks her feet all the time... worked like a charm. Also, I have Eczema & work in the food industry. My hands are constantly dry & cracking. 4 nights of slathering Vicks Vapo-Rub on my hands & covering with cotton gloves, my dry skin is a thing of the past. I use the Vicks on my hands nightly now. I don't want it to come back!
