Number of Servings:


  1. 1/4 cups - shea butter (OR substitute half of this with coconut oil)
  2. 1/8 cups - sweet almond oil
  3. 1 tablespoons - beeswax (small beeswax pellets melt best)
  4. 20 drops - essential oil (i.e. 8 drops myrrh, 8 drops cedarwood, 4 drops peppermint)


In a double boiler, stir together and melt the shea butter, beeswax, and almond oil.

Once evenly melted, let mixture cool for 5-10 minutes before adding in the drops of your favorite nourishing essential oils.

Pour the mix into a hand cream container and let harden completely over the next few hours.
