We aren't supposed to have favorites, but this is our favorite oil in the bunch.

Its calming and soothing properties are great for eczema. It is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, B-complex vitamins, and Vitamins E and K. Our favorite thing about this oil is it has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties which assist in wound healing.

Beeswax is a humectant. This means it attracts water. It is also occlusive, meaning it helps form a protective layer on the skin and seals in moisture.

It also contains Vitamins C, E and Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. It is lightweight, non-greasy, and non-comedogenic (meaning it won't clog your pores!).
