Best Basic Beeswax Cream
makes about 5 ounces

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

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.
