1/4 to 1/2ozbeeswax beads
1/4cupcoconut oil or carrier oil of your choice
15 - 20drops pure essential oilsI used peppermint and lemon
Put a couple spoons in the freezer before starting.
Add your coconut oil to a glass measuring cup or a container with a spout and preferably made of glass.
Add your beeswax beads starting with a 1/4 oz. (You will add more if you want the consistency to be harder).
Microwave in 30 second intervals and mix in-between until the beeswax is melted. The time will vary depending on your microwave, the amount you are making and the carrier oil you use. Mine took 90 seconds then I added more beeswax for another 30 seconds.
Mix well until all the beeswax is melted.
Pull out a spoon from the freezer and dip into the mixture. Test the consistency and if it's to your liking it's ready. If not, add a bit more beeswax and continue to microwave until you reach the desired consistency.
