Before starting, make sure your work station is as clean as possible. Have clean utensils and pots -- the pots you are putting your product in have been cleaned. You want to keep your finished product to stay as sterile as possible.
Combine all the ingredients and heat until just melted, roughly 3 - 4 minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a boil. Vitamin E and Essential oils are heat sensitive, so let the mixture cool down until warm to the touch, then add them. Work quickly to pour the balm into the pots.
Let stand, undisturbed until the mixture solidify.

Vitamin E has it's own healing properties, but it is used here as a preservative. With any home products, there is a shelf life of roughly 2 years. I date my finished product -- but I have usually used it up by then!
