Here’s what you need to make 4 OZ:

Here’s what you do:

  1. Melt the Shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax in a double boiler.  I don’t have a fancy double boiler, so I put a Pyrex bowl inside a saucepan and melt the oils in the bowl.
  2. Once melted, remove from the heat.  Allow to cool for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add in the jojoba oil and Young Living Essential Oils.  Stir well to incorporate,
  4. Pour the mixture into a silicone mold. (you can use any mold, but silicone molds are the easiest to use in this situation. You can get one HERE)
  5. Allow the mixture to cool and solidify for a few hours.
  6. Remove the bars and store in an airtight container.

Use generously whenever hands need some LOVE!
