As you probably have realized by now I like to make things myself when I can. Beauty products are fun to experiment with and with just a few items you can make just about anything. Having a teenage daughter to share them with has really made this all the more enjoyable for me. We often make them together as little projects to do together to pass the time.

I want her to have and use natural products that work. And for moisturizing these really do. I like to use these on my feet at night just before bed before putting socks on. They work well to soften even the dryest skin and in a pinch they make great gifts as well.

2 lbs White Beeswax Pellets

Raw Organic Cocoa Butter

Organic Coconut Oil

Spatula

4 oz soap bar mold

Directions

You will need a double boiler or you can make one by simply taking a sauce pot, adding a bit of water and placing a glass bowl inside over medium heat.

Place all the ingredients inside the double boiler and allow them to melt together. Make sure to stir to help the process along. It may take several minutes for the beeswax to melt all the way through. You can opt to add a piece of foil to the top to help move the process along a bit faster.

Once melted remove from heat.

Then using a heat protective glove or using pot holders take the bowl out and pour the mixture into an awaiting soap mold evenly filling each insert.
