  • Double boiler or sauce pan combined with a small bowl that can fit over the sauce pan
  • Hand held electric beater or stand mixer


  • 3.5 ounces Beef tallow
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil or other oil of choice, such as sesame oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil
  • 25-50 drops Lavender essential oil


  • Melt the tallow in the top pot of a double boiler or in a bowl that fits over a saucepan. (You should fill the lower part of the double boiler or the saucepan with about 2 inches of water that you have brought to a medium simmer.) Once melted, turn off the heat and add the olive oil to the melted tallow and stir well.
  • Remove the double boiler or saucepan and fitted bowl and allow the tallow to cool at room temperature for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Now add the lavender essential oil. Mix well.
  • Allow the mixture to cool in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. Then remove the mixture from the refrigerator and use an electric hand mixer (or stand mixer with the whip attachment) to whip the balm into a cream-like consistency.
  • Decant the foot cream into a lidded jar, and store in a cool dark place, such as a cabinet or pantry.
  • The shelf life of the balm is approximately 1 year. Please see "Important Information" in the Recipe Notes section below before using any cream made with tallow balm and essential oils.
