1 ounce beeswax
1 ounce shea butter
1 ounce sweet almond oil (you can also use olive oil)
1. Melt beeswax in a double boiler. Pellets melt faster than a big chunk, but a chunk of beeswax works just as well in the final recipe.
2. Add shea butter and let melt while stirring.
3. Add oil and stir well. Remove from heat.
4. Pour in to containers and let cool before capping.
I like to use chapstick tubes because this makes a harder lotion. It does melt on contact with your skin, so it is gentle to use.
I leave it unscented and reserve one tube just for my lips.
When I sold bath and body products, I sold tons of this stuff. I still have people ask for it, so I do make it a few times a year for friends and family and, of course, myself.
