Amy's Cuts and Butts Awesomesauce

I went to visit my friend Amy on MLK day with the boys, so that all our kids could play thunderdome while we talked Oils.  One of my favorite recipes that she let me sample was this one. It's Fabulous for EVERYTHING!   This is what they were thinking of when they created the phrase, "awesomesauce".   So when my sister in law Erica and I met up this week for a Make-n-Take session of our own, I wanted to make it.    It was so much to make all kinds of goodies.   This is Amy's Recipe for her homemade neosporin.   We just called it Cuts and Butts.

Amy's Cuts and Butts

1/4 cup coconut oil (the organic solid at room temperature type)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp beeswax
20 drops Lavender oil
12 drops Frankincense oil
10 drops Lemon oil
8 drops Tea Tree aka Melaleuca

Melt beeswax in a double boiler.  I use a glass bowl on top of a boiling pot of water.  Once melted add coconut oil, and wait until it melts and is uniform.  Then add the olive oil, mix and remove from heat.  Add Young Living Essential Oils.   Then pour into desired container, it makes ~5 ounces.   We made two baby food jars.

  1. Sam just fell running to the bus yesterday, and scraped his knee good. The bus driver put a bandaid on it, but he could barely walk when he got home. So I put Cuts-and-Butts all around the bandaid, and let it melt down where the bandaid was, as much as I could. Initially he balked, but within 2 minutes, he was so excited. He exclaimed, "That Cuts-n-Butts makes it feel like my booboo isn't even there!"
