Homemade Beeswax Lotion.
Living on a farm, and raising our own bees is a dream come true! I have always wanted to make my own health and beauty products and I am finally able to do it.
Our bee hives multiply every year, and my hubby is able to allow me to have more of the wax each time we can split a hive. I am finally getting a good supply of wax and I am able to keep my family supplied in lotions and lip balms.
I feel like I am doing something good for my skin when I use all natural products and it is so easy to make I just had to share how easy it is to make hand lotion.
Learning how to make health and beauty hand lotion is very simple and with a few easy steps you can make your own lotion as well. Even if you don’t have your own bees you can easily order beeswax and your other supplies quickly.
Homemade hand lotion ingredients:
- 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
- 1/2 cup Beeswax
- 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E Oil
- 20 drops of your favorite pure Essential Oil
5 Easy Steps:
Step #1 – In a quart sized jar combine olive oil, coconut oil, and beeswax.
Step#2 – In a small sauce pan add 2 cups of water and then place the jar in the center of the pan. Turn the heat to medium and heat slowly until all wax in melted.
Step #3 – Once the wax is melted remove the jar from the pan.
Step #4 – Add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil and the Vitamin E oil. Stir until combined.
Step #5 – Pour into individual containers, and cool until set.
I have found that the shelf life for this recipe is about six months. It is so easy to make that I make a fresh batch a couple times a year or whenever I run out.
Please note: I have linked the ingredients to Amazon in case you would like to buy the ingredients and make your own all-natural homemade beeswax lotion. Enjoy!
