Itch Relief Stick

We love Summer, but we don’t love the occasional insect bite that comes with being out in the warm fresh air. This easy-to-make relief stick will help soothe those itchy bites - and it’s super portable so you can take it with you anywhere.

  • 30% Calendula Infused Oil
  • 22% Beeswax
  • 20% Shea Butter
  • 15% Cocoa Butter
  • 10% Marshmallow Infused Oil
  • 2% Lavender Essential Oil
  • 1% Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Twist up tubes for packaging


  • 1. In a pyrex or microwave-safe container, melt the beeswax with the infused oils. Do this is 2 minute intervals to avoid anything boiling over or burning. Once the beeswax has melted, add the butters and stir until they've melted, too. They may melt rather slowly, but it's important to add the butters this way so that your product doesn't become grainy later.
  • 2. Once the butters have melted, add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Once everything is incorporated, your product is ready to go into the twist up tubes.
