Simple Beeswax Salve With Coconut Oil

I've seen similar recipes with olive oil, but like the properties of coconut oil better, especially the scent.

1  Use a double boiler to gently melt 2 ounces of beeswax. An ounce by weight roughly melts to a fluid ounce.

2 remove from heat and add 14-16 ounces of extra virgin coconut oil.  Blend thoroughly.

3 Add and essential oil of your choice, roughly 30 drops of lemongrass, peppermint etc., whatever you choose.

4 Pour into a container that you can easily access the salve. It will solidify in to a nice thick creamy mixture.

5 You're ready to use as you choose.
