DIRECTIONS

  • Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water and bring to the boil. In the top, combine the coconut oil, almond oil and beeswax. Allow to melt and stir to combine.
  • Remove pot from the burner and stir in the essential oils.
  • Pour into a heat proof container and allow to cool completely before closing.
  • My notes: Once the mixture cooled, I placed the container of hand cream in the fridge to become firmer. *Please* note the hand cream will melt if exposed to heat. I put a small amount in a sample container, placed it in my purse and an hour later the cream was liquified. It solidified again at room temperature. Why did this surprise me? ;).
  • Makes approximately 3 1/2 ounces.
