...but I had to try this. Products that I can make at home with ease and benefit my family at the same time.
Yes please and thank you very much.
1-1/2 oz beeswax, grated
1 cup oil = olive, almond or coconut are suggested options
1/4 tsp pure Vitamin E oil
1/2 tsp tea tree oil
20 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil
I chose to use coconut oil and did not grate the beeswax...it turned out fine.
In a double boiler, over low heat, melt first two ingredients together.

Once the mixture is uniform, remove from heat and add Vitamin E, tea tree, and essential oils. Stir with a chopstick - or something like that.
|Melting complete and uniform; ready to add Vitamin E, tea tree, and essential oils.|
Pour mixture into small, sterilized jars. This recipe made about 12 ounces.
|I filled three of these containers - they are 4 oz each|
Cool on the counter and store in a cool, dark place. It should be good for 8-10 months.
