Lavender Hand Cream



INGREDIENTS:
1/3 cup sweet almond oil
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons grated beeswax (about 1-1/2 oz.)
30-35 drops lavender essential oil



DIRECTIONS:
Combine the oils in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat just until warm, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the grated beeswax, stirring until the was is completely melted.
Refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes to start the oils cooling, then stir in the essential oil (30 drops for less scent, 35 for more).
At this point, the cream can be poured into a container (or two containers, if desired) to cool completely.

Note: Since this method doesn't use water, there is no need to use a blender or processor and you won’t have to worry about the cream separating. It will be softer in warmer weather and harder in cooler, but still be spreadable either way. It can be stored at room temperature (storing in the refrigerator will result in a stiffer cream).

VARIATIONS:
For a thinner consistency to use with a pump, use only 2 Tablespoons beeswax.
For a thicker, salve-like consistency, use up to 4 Tablespoons beeswax.
Replace lavender with the essential oil of your choice like lemon, orange, or another floral scent.
Since a little goes a long way, this can be packaged in small tins to give as gifts

What scents would you use in this? And do you use anything similar?
