  • 1/4 to 1/2 oz beeswax beads
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or carrier oil of your choice
  • 15 - 20 drops pure essential oils I used peppermint and lemon


  1. Put a couple spoons in the freezer before starting.
  2. Add your coconut oil to a glass measuring cup or a container with a spout and preferably made of glass.
  3. Add your beeswax beads starting with a 1/4 oz. (You will add more if you want the consistency to be harder).
  4. 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.
  5. Mix well until all the beeswax is melted.
  6. 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.
  7. Add your essentials oils and mix well.
  8. Pour into containers and let cool and harden.

  9. Enjoy!
