Combining the goodness of beesswax and a natural oil, this is a great recipe for treating dry skin.
What you need
3/4 cups carrier/fixed/base oil of your choice (sweet almond oil is standard for most skin types), or you can use a blend of oils to make up the recommended 3/4 cups
(i.e. 1/2 cup sweet almond oil, 1/2 cup jojoba oil, 1/2 cup apricot kernel oil)
1 tbsp essential oil of your choice (lavender, orange, grapefruit, recommended)
*Hint* Warm up your scent with a splash of vanilla fragrance oil (about 1/2 tsp)
In a double boiler melt beeswax and oil over med-low heat until beeswax has dissolved.
Pour into glass jars…Recipe makes two 3.5 to 4 oz jars.
Let mixture cool down and then scent.
Cover and let harden for a couple hours.
Depending on the depth or width of jars, hardening time could be more or less. ENJOY!
