  • How to make a lotion. Gardener's Bliss Hand Salve - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, place the wax, coconut oil and olive oil in a large glass measuring cup. Then place the measuring cup in a pot of simmering water.

    Stir occasionally as the ingredients melt into a nice liquid.

    While you are waiting, take the time to place the essential oils into your glass jars.

    Step 2

    Once the wax and coconut oil are melted, dip a spoon into the liquid and then place it in the freezer for a minute, to see what the consistency is like. If you would prefer it to be thicker, you may want to add more beeswax. Add oil if you want it to be thinner.

    Then, remove the container from the water and let it sit to cool for just a couple of minutes.

    Next, add your vitamin E by pricking the capsule with a pin and squeezing the oil into the salve mixture. Stir and pour into the glass jars. This recipe filled exactly eight 2 oz. jars.
