I have been wanting to make up some moisture sticks for around my eye area and lip balm. I used containers I had around the house because I never got around to ordering from Amazon. 😉 I will next time.
I love the way this recipe turned out and will definitely make it again soon.
3 TBS Coconut Oil
2 TBS Beeswax
1 TBS Bee Pollen
1 TBS Propolis
15 drops Frankincense essential oil
10 drops Myrrh essential oil
(I used 2 tablespoons of YS Organic Bee Farms – Multi Bee Power Royal Jelly in place of Bee Pollen and Propolis)
Melt the coconut oil, beeswax, bee pollen, propolis together in a double boiler to keep it from scorching. A pan of water with a glass bowl on top works if you don’t have a double boiler. If using essential oils, let the mixture cool a bit so you don’t damage therapeutic constituents in the oils.
Stir in the frankincense and myrrh essential oils and pour the mixture into a heat-resistant container. Do it quickly, though, because it will start to harden right away.
Equipment You’ll Need
I didn’t like the oval because it feels like I am putting deodorant on my face. 🙂 I will get the round container for the moisturizer sticks.
