Homemade - Vasoline "Petroleum" Jelly

1 cup Mineral Oil (Baby Oil should work too)
2 ounces by weight of Beeswax

Melt beeswax in double boiler. Stir in mineral oil. When blended well, remove from heat and

Stir until cool.
Store in airtight container.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Good for dry hands, small wounds, and minor burns to speed healing.

Having made this successfully tonight, I also tried a variation.....

Added several Menthol Crystals to the mix as I was stiring in the mineral oil.
This should make a rather decent "vapor rub" Alah Vics.

I will be testing both later tonight after cooling.
