_Now once again I got the basics of this recipe off of A Sonoma Garden.  Her recipe calls for olive oil but I used grape seed oil instead.  I also omitted the essential oil because I felt that the grape seed oil and beeswax combination made a wonderful natural scent... so I left it as is.  I also want to point out that this lotion is a bit greasy.  So if you already have oily skin you may or may not like it... but for someone like me who is from the desert and has very dry skin... I absolutely LOVE lathering up in this after a bath or shower.  My skin soaks it right up! 

1 cup of grape seed oil
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup beeswax (I think next time I'm going to add a little bit less)
1/2 tsp Vitamin E oil

Combine both the grape seed oil and coconut oil with the beeswax in a mason jar.  Set the jar in a pot filled with water high enough to cover the oils and beeswax within the jar.  Be careful not to let any water enter the jar itself.  Bring the temperature to medium/low and stir until all ingredients are completely melted.  You then remove it from the heat and let stand at room temperature stirring occasionally until it has solidified.  Now is when you can put your few drops of Vitamin E oil and essential oils if you choose.

Now right now my camera is broken so I could only take pictures with my phone... but for more details don't forget to check out A Sonoma Garden!
