Pure Vaseline or petrolatum is a petroleum product subjected to a purification process to be used in cosmetics because it is an excellent moisturizer .

When it has been completely purified is nearly transparent white color, is sold in supermarkets and pharmacies.

In spite that this product is found in many creams , moisturizers and some makeup, and has been used since many years ago , there is still the question of whether or not is good to use it because  petroleum is not something healthy and it can eventually cause cancer .

To make a home Vaseline , natural without being a derivative of oil need the following things :


On the stove over medium- low heat Put water in a pot .
Placed within a glass vessel where all ingredients will melt and mix

Put 1 tablespoon of cocnut oil, once is melted add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of bees wax and 1/2 tablespoon of glycerin With a wooden spoon mix all ingredients until the wax has completely melted: remember the amount of bees wax you will use depends on how hard you want your vaseline to be.

Once the mixture is ready, remove from the heat and pour it into the container where it will be stored before it starts to cool down, let it cool for a couple of hours and its done!

You have your own home made vaseline, 100% natural and you will not have to worry about being toxic or causing you any allergies.
