  • 1/4 cup shea butter
  • 1/8 cup sweet almond oil
  • 1 tbsp beeswax
  • 12 drops of essential oils of your choice


Place shea butter, beeswax and almond oil into a bowl onto top of a small pot of very gently simmering water to melt down, this is called the double boiler method. Remove melted mixture from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Once cooled add your essential oils and stir gently. Whip the mixture until it begins to harden. Transfer to a jar and allow to completely cool and thicken into a cream. Apply to your hands and rub in continuous circular motions until cream disappears completely. Store away from direct sunlight, heat and moisture for best quality. Will last approx 3 months.
