I found this in the June 2002 issue of the Craft Magazine. I'm guessing as to how long it takes to make this.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 ounces beeswax
  • 1 12 ounces cocoa butter
  • 1 12 ounces aloe butter
  • 2 ounces sweet almond oil
  • 3 -5 drops vitamin E or 3 -5 drops evening primrose oil
  • 5 -10 drops bug repellant essential oils

Directions

  1. Melt beeswax, cocoa butter, aloe butter and sweet almond oil in the top of a double boiler.
  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vitamin E or evening primrose oil and the repellant essential oils.
  3. Pour the contents into the soap mold and let the bars cool completely.
  4. To repel insects, rub the bar over exposed skin before going outdoors.
  5. NOTE: This is not a soap bar.
  6. BUG-REPELLANT ESSENTIAL OILS: Cedarwood, citronella, eucalyptus, geranium, lemongrass, and sandalwood oils are known to help repel bugs.
