Here is a good, easy starter recipe for bag balm!
And here’s another good one: http://www.theprairiehomestead.com/2011/11/diy-homemade-udder-balm.html#sthash.jZOo6cmx.dpbs
Within the first week of having our cow, Happy, I realized the importance of a good udder butter. She was dry and bugs were biting. Commercial bag balms are petroleum based and come in big litre-sized, or bigger containers. That’s a few year’s worth if you have only one cow. So I decided to try making my own. It turned out so easy to do and cheap! The result is a nice thick cream that nourishes and lasts the day out in the sun and wind. The use of essential oils is optional but why not take advantage of the properties? Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Lavendar are both a natural antiseptic and an insect repellent. I am using lavendar right now and it really does protect her from fly bites. And smells good. 🙂 This cream is good for us too so spread it around!
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. beeswax
