Lotion Bar 10

For bug stuff???
I’ve also been thinking of putting Eucalyptus and Citronella in them
as an EO to help keep the bugs away. Was also thinking they’d be much
easier to take camping, too.
Massage Melts
2 tbsp beeswax
2 tbsp cocoa butter
1 tbsp thick honey or 1.5 tsp oil of preference (palm, olive,
almond, or
even jojoba)
5 - 10 drops of any eo if you prefer

Melt in bain marie (water bath) beeswax and then add honey (or oil) and whisk together and then if using eo add it and combine well. The key to this recipe is keeping the beeswax very hot while mixing. Pour into mold and let set overnight in refrigerator.
Honey works very well and leaves no sticky feeling, but if you prefer a softer bar then use the oils.
