All-natural Beeswax Lotion

There are so many different all-natural beeswax lotion recipes out there, it’s often hard to figure out which one is best.  If you’re looking for a simple health and beauty recipe, that you can make quickly this is the one.  This recipe only took me about 30 minutes to make and I was able to use whatever essential oil I had on hand. Today’s choice was grapefruit essential oil!

It’s really easy. Here’s what you’ll need to make beeswax lotion:

  • 1/2 cup beeswax, freshly grated or beeswax pellets (you can find them at Amazon)
  • 1 cup organic olive oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  • 30 drops of your favorite essential oil (There are so many choices, but a few of my favorites are …grapefruit, lavender, eucalyptus or peppermint.)
  • 1-pint jar or 6 – 2oz cosmetic jars with lids (I bought mine at Amazon)


Using a double boiler or heat-safe bowl place pint jar in the pot of simmering water. Melt beeswax, olive oil, and coconut oil until melted and blended.

Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes.  Add Vitamin E and your favorite essential oil. Stir until blended and pour into 2 oz containers or leave in a pint jar.

Let cool until solid and cool to the touch.  They are ready to use and share!
