Best Basic Beeswax Cream


This is the Best Basic Beeswax Cream! Only four all-natural ingredients! You can use this as a cuticle cream, face cream, split-end mender, foot cream, and hydrating all-over body lotion.

I like to get all my ingredients from Mountain Rose Herbs, you can shop with them HERE.

Best Basic Beeswax Cream
makes about 5 ounces

1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Olive Oil (shop here)
2 heaping teaspoons Mountain Rose Herbs Beeswax Pastilles (shop here)
1 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Liquid Lecithin (shop here)
1/4 cup Mountain Rose Herbs Lavender Hydrosol (shop here)

1. Measure the olive oil, beeswax and liquid lecithin into a glass measuring cup that has been placed in a pot with a few inches of simmering water.  Allow the wax to fully melt into the olive oil and lecithin.  Remove from heat and transfer the mixture to a heat-safe mixing bowl to cool to between 70 degrees and 75 degrees F.

2. Heat the hydrosol to between 70 degrees and 75 degrees F.

3. Once both phases are the same temperature, begin beating  the oil/wax lecithin mixture with a handheld mixer set on medium-high speed.  Very slowly drizzle in the warm hydrosol.  Continue mixing for about 5 minutes or until the liquid starts to thicken and emulsify. 

4. Transfer to a sanitized container and allow to fully cool down.  Store in the refrigerator and use within 2 weeks.
