DIY Natural Body Balm

You will need:
Beeswax, mango butter, avocado butter, camellia seed oil, hemp oil, castor oil, grape seed oil, essential oils, measuring spoons, crockpot or double boiler, spoons( I like the rubber ones so you can scrape all the oils from the bowl, 3 or 4 jars depending on the size, I filled up 3 jars at a 4 oz measurement each, stir sticks, scale to measure weight and a measuring cup.
2 ounces of beeswax
4 ounces of mango butter
1 tablespoon of avocado butter
1 tablespoon of camellia seed oil
1 tablespoon of hemp seed oil
1 tablespoon of Castro oil
Grape seed oil
1 teaspoon of Essential oils or fragrance of your choice
Weigh out your butters on a scale, once that is complete place the beeswax in the crockpot on low heat, wait for beeswax to melt. Once the beeswax has melted place then solid butters in a glass measuring cup and place it into the microwave and slowly melt checking every 10-15seconds( be careful not to burn your butters. After your butters are melted add in all your liquid oils.
Your measured liquid oils and butter oils will not add up to a cup as of yet so you need to top it off with a carrier oil. I used grape seed oil in this recipe but you can add olive oil, apricot oil or whatever it is you have on hand. Place all melted oil from measuring cup into the crockpot, you will notice the liquid oils becoming a solid, don’t be alarmed that’s due to the beeswax so let that melt down.
Once all oils have been melted pour out of crockpot and back into a measuring cup for easy pouring and cool down the oils. You’ll see a little of a ring around your measuring cup that’s a good indication that your oils are cooling down and you can now add your essential oils or fragrance oils( they are both equal in measurement, a teaspoon of either).  After you stir in your essential oil or fragrance oil, stir well then pour into your jars.
Now you have a beautiful body moisturizer for you skin to enjoy that will replenish you skin cells and moisturize!!!!!
