  • Safely melt the beeswax in a suitable container. Using a double boiler is the safest method.
    Add the beeswax to your double boiler. Gently melt the beeswax until it is completely liquified.
    Once the beeswax is melted add the coconut oil. It will melt quickly – don’t let it burn!

  • Remove the beeswax and oils from heat and add the Aloe Vera Gel. Stir very well until completed mixed. If the beeswax starts to harden, return to heat briefly.

  • Once the aloe vera gel is well mixed into the recipe. Slowly add in the honey. I also add a few drops of Vitamin E oil, but that is completely optional.
