      scale
      microwave safe container
      stirring utensil
      Containers for filling

    Instructions

    Weigh all ingredients (white cocoa butter to beeswax) into a microwave safe container. Melt with short burst of time until all oil ingredients have reached a liquid state. Mix well, add scent continue to whip as the butter cools. Transfer into desired containers and viola... Easy, fun, and your skin will thank you.

    Comments

    This butter is not too hard and not too soft. It melts nicely from the warmth of your hands. If you are looking for something a bit harder you can either increase the beeswax or white cocoa butter by 4 grams. Or live on the edge and do half and half! This recipe is ideal for trying the lotion bar tubes!

    Yield

    This recipe will fill approximately 10 Lotion Bar Tubes and each tube will contain approximately 0.63 ounces of product.
