  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons shea butter
  • 2 tablespoons beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 20 drops essential oil (I used peppermint)
  • 4 ounce glass bowl
  • bamboo skewer
  • 4 ounce wide mouth container and lid


  • Add all the beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil together in the 4 ounce glass bowl.
  • Put the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds
  • Stir ingredients together. If they are not all melted, microwave another 30 seconds. Stir again until completely melted.
  • Add essential oil
  • Pour into your 4oz jar of choice and let cool. Mixture will solidify when it’s cooled.
