Put Coconut Oil, Beeswax, and Fractionated Coconut Oil (or Jojoba oil) in the glass jar and place in the microwave. Heat for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until everything has melted.

Once everything has melted and cooled down but not yet solid, add your essential oils and stir into the mixture. Let stand overnight to cool. You can also place it in the fridge to settle (without the lid on).

    Definitely does NOT fit in a 2oz. Jar so just be aware! Good recipe overall except for that!

    Is there a substitute for coconut oil? i feel it’s not the best for acne prone skin.

    This sounds like it would not fit in a 2 oz. jar. Did I miss something. I have a possible user but I only want enough for a trial container. Sounds wonderful–thanks.
