  • How to make skincare. Natural Body Balm - Step 1
    Step 1

    Grate the beeswax and cocoa butter.

    The ratio that I use for this is 1 part beeswax and 1 part cocoa butter tablets to 2 parts of coconut oil, BUT this is approximate.

    Just note that cocoa butter and beeswax are fairly hard, so you will want more of the coconut oil to make more of a consistency that will melt with body heat.

    Step 2

    Melt the beeswax and cocoa butter in the microwave in 30-60 second increments.

    Melt the coconut oil separately. Once melted, mix together.

    Enjoy and use your body balm on lips, feet, hands, face and more! It will be a harder consistency, yet it melts with body temperature.
