Beeswax Lotion Recipe
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup beeswax
- 10 drops essential oil (in the scent of your choice)
Start by adding the olive oil, coconut oil, and beeswax to a jar. NOTE: Beeswax pastilles are easier to measure but you can also grate or chop up a full size bar. You will want to melt this mixture over medium or low heat. My favorite method is to set the jar on a canning lid ring and add water until it is about 1/4 to 1/2 way up the jar. Heat and carefully stir occasionally until everything is melted and combined.
Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. You will want to stir the mixture with a fork about every 15 minutes during the cooling process. Once the mixture has cooled, add in your essential oil and stir. Remember that you can add in your favorite scents and don’t be afraid to experiment! Now you have a jar of lotion that is great for your skin and all natural!
Please remember that these products have no preservatives and may not last as long as commercially prepared lotions. You can use this as a hand or body lotion. Give it a try for yourself! I think you will love the results.

- Start by adding your sugar scrub to your jar. I wanted the gift to look as much like a pencil as possible so I made an eraser top. Just use a small piece of pink fabric cut slightly larger than my mason jar lid with scissors.
- I then added a small amount of fiber fill under the fabric and put the lid on the jar as shown below.
- You will also need to print the pineapple tags, cut out using scissors, and punch a hole in the top. Then tie this around your jar using some yellow ribbon.
