Here is the full recipe so that you can try it at home for yourself!
You will need:
114 grams Beeswax
85 grams Cocoa Butter
7 grams Shea Butter
7 mls Lanolin
7 mls Avocado Oil
7 mls Tea Tree Oil
7 mls Jojoba Oil
7 mls Orange Essential Oil
An empty container to store your Hand Butter
First, melt the Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Beeswax in a double boiler or Baine Marie then gradually add the other ingredients leaving the Essential Oil to last. Make sure that you stir all of the ingredients together thoroughly and only add the Essential Oil once the mixture has cooled down. Beeswax thickens fast so make sure you pour it quickly into your container before it thickens up as otherwise you will have to remelt it again and repour. Place in freezer until it had set up then take it out and wait for it to come to room temperature first before using.
This is a wonderful recipe that lasts a while due to it’s highly effective ingredients. I hope you enjoy it and of course do let me know what you think of it!
