do these molds need to be greased first with this recipe?
Hi Donna! Great question:) These molds work perfectly without being greased. Once hardened, they slip right out.
If purchasing different molds, what material do I need to purchase for the molds?

These look great! I will be making them next week. I love eczema salve. I will have to see if I love this just as much!

Andrea, these look awesome. About the Ylang ylang, although it smells exquisite to me, my adult son is not a fan of the floral/perfume aroma. Is there another essential oil that can be substituted? Thank you for all your wonderful recipes
I wanted to know if I truly have to use the beeswax. My daughter is always on the move so I wonder if not using the beeswax would make it like a cream or paste. And she could just rub all over through out the day.
Hi! Is evening primrose more important to the effectiveness of this recipe than, say, rosehip seed oil? Or are both absolutely necessary? Also, can cocoa butter be used instead of kokum?
Is there a specific location to find the answers to the above questions, or do they go unanswered?
