Petroleum jelly has so many uses around the home. It can cover a burn, help soothe a rash, or as a lubricant. However, if you don’t have any petroleum jelly nearby, you can always use bee balm as a substitute.
Bee balm works great as an alternative to petroleum jelly, because it gives the same soothing and antiseptic qualities that petroleum jelly has. One advantage to using bee balm is that it does not have an expiration date, unlike petroleum jelly. Just make sure to store the bee balm in a dark, cool, place, and you’ll be able to use it for years to come.
