Here's my 2015 method for making "unpetroleum jelly" -- What soapy thing have you done today?

I made a new batch of this just last month -- it's a product that's stood the test of time in my household. I want to mention I no longer use 10% EOs as I shared in the 2015 post. After testing, I have found the salve is effective with less EO, so I now use a total of 3% EOs or less. If you want to make just the jelly without medicinal additives, substitute plain oil rather than infused oil and don't add any EOs.​

I made the soaping101 version and it was really nice. I didn't like the dandelion in it though, it burned my skin but I have pollen allergies. Ended up using it on my feet and the dogs paws.

Need to try it again but without any herbal infusion.
