I am currently making up a fresh batch of Yarrow/Comfrey/Calendula infused oil and just harvested Goldenrod (this photo) infused oil. These will be my base oils for restocking my Skin Soothing Balm and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Balm respectively. I'm using Extra Virgin Olive Oil in these batches together with Candelilla Wax (vegan) for the first time. I like the fact that only half as much Candelilla wax is needed compared to beeswax for balm making. This will allow for a higher concentration of healing herbal infused oil in the balms.
