Homemade Beeswax Lotion

posted by on 04/04/2013 | 238 comments (leave one of your own)

Every person that lives in my house has dry skin. I could probably go out on a limb and say every person that lives in Colorado has dry skin, but I don’t want to make assumptions.

Because our dryness is immune to regular lotion, I researched recipes for homemade lotions and decided to make one out of beeswax.

Here’s what you need:

1/2 almond oil
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/2 c. beeswax pastilles
15 drops of essential oil, I used lavender

I ordered the beeswax pastilles and they look like this and were not free.

The recipe I followed called for a cup of olive oil and no almond oil, but I only had 1/2 cup of olive oil in the house, so that’s why I threw in the almond oil because it available and I wasn’t going to the store.

Combine almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil and the not free beeswax pastilles into some sort of glass jar. Place this jar into a saucepan and fill the saucepan with water so it comes up around halfway on the jar. Place this on your stove over low heat and heat and stir occasionally until melted, this took me almost ten minutes.

Here’s a reenactment for you because I did this at night and I forgot to take photos.

Carefully remove the jar from the heat because it is freaking hot (duh) and transfer the lotion to your preferred lotion container and let it cool on your kitchen counter. While it is cooling, stir the lotion every few minutes. When it was cooled, I added the essential oil.

The above recipe made enough beeswax lotion to fill two of these wide mouth half pint jars.  I hoard mason jars like some people hoard whatever it is people hoard to end up on that show that makes you want to dump everything in your house into a dumpster the size of your house. I will probably end up on that show except our guest bed room/hall closet/basement will be filled with mason jars and I will cry while the kids tell me I only get to keep three.

It isn’t so much a lotion as a balm?  Or a cream? You definitely cannot put this in a pump dispenser.

I jacked one of the little tiny wooden spreaders from a package of the SolBites and I have been using that to scoop out the lotion.  This is totally not necessary unless you like to be fancy.

Verdict: We are all using the beeswax lotion and it is rad. I use it every night on my heels and it is like magic. It is fighting our dry skin like a boss.
