  • Tip:
    I ordered my shea butter, wax pellets and essential oils from ebay and etsy. The coconut oil and vitamin E were purchased at Walmart. I have a thing for citrus scents, especially lemon. I love the fresh fragrance, but you can use whatever oils you’d like.

  • Melt your shea butter, bees wax and coconut oil in the microwave in 20 second intervals.

  • It will take a couple of minutes. Here it is after 60 seconds. Just stir well after each interval. Below is what it will look like when it is completely melted.

  • Cut the tip off of the vitamin E capsule/add it to your liquid mixture.

Add lemon&lime essential oils, to your liking. As a reference, I used about 15 drops of each. Stir after adding the oils.

Pour your mixture into your molds.

Allow to sit until tops start to look solid (about 15 minutes).

  • 2 oz. of bees wax will make a nice firm bar. If you’d like a softer bar that reacts to the heat of your skin quicker, you can lower the amount of bees wax to 1.5 oz. or even 1 oz.
To use, wrap your fingers around your bar. The warmth from your skin will activate the oils and leave a soft and smooth.
