Time: about 5 minutes
YOU WILL NEED:
1/2 c. shea butter
1/2 tsp. sweet almond oil
1/2 tsp. avocado oil
1/2 tsp. grated beeswax
perfume sample or essential oil
4 oz. jar with lid
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the beeswax (about 30 seconds on high).
Add the shea butter and melt (about 20 second on high).
Add the sweet almond and avocado oils. If they're cold, they may cause the beeswax to harden. If this happens, microwave for 10 seconds on high or until it is melted again.
Allow to cool until opaque and thickened (it helps to put it in the refrigerator).
Using an egg beater, hand-held mixer, or stand mixer whip until light and fluffy (about 1-2 minutes).
Add your perfume or essential oil and spoon it into your jar. The free printable labels can be found here.
