Imma Call It “Relax Wax”


A couple years ago I found a recipe for a headache balm. I thought that was very interesting. You can rub this balm on your forehead to treat a headache.

I assembled the ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, peppermint essential oil and lavender essential oil, and followed the preparation instructions. It was a simple process: melt the beeswax and coconut oil together, and as the mixture cools, add the essential oils.

After the balm cooled, I poured it into small metal tins. Once the tins had cooled enough, I decided to rub some of the balm on my forehead, even though I didn’t have a headache at the time.

About 15 minutes later, I started yawning and feeling somewhat mildly sedated. I said to myself, “I’m starting to feel really relaxed. It must have been the wax. I’m gonna call it ‘Relax Wax’.”

True story!
