Thanks to the wonderful input from our customers we revised this lotion base to make it easier to customize. In our tests, it's easier than ever to mix any fragrance or essential oil in with no issues of separation. Formula revised Nov. 2014.
Beeswax Lotion Base - We have revamped our recipe to make it richer and thicker! Using Avocado, Coconut and Sweet Almond Oil, this lotion is filled with skin loving oils rich in vitamins. BTMS-50 and Beeswax combine to emulsify this lotion into a luxurious cream. Preserved with Optiphen, a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative which is still effective for temperatures below 176°F, which means you can safely warm up your lotion to more easily add in fragrance and transfer to smaller bottles.
Our Beeswax lotion base is unscented, uncolored, and waiting for your personal, customizing touch!
This product is sold by volume.
To use this lotion base - Warm the lotion base to 130°F in a fully disinfected container (5% bleach water or rubbing alcohol will disinfect your mixing containers). The lotion base will become the consistency of a melted milkshake. Add your fragrance at the recommended usage rate (typically .1 ounces of fragrance per 16 ounces of lotion) and stir until fully incorporated. Pour carefully into your containers. Let the lotion sit until it is room temperature prior to putting the cap on. The preservative system in this lotion starts to degrade at 176°F. Please ensure your lotion gets no warmer than 130°F during the heating phase.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Bjorn-Ake! I'm sorry that the base is separating on you! We love the Beeswax Lotion Base and hadn't had any issues with separation. It sounds like the fragrance may be separating out. You should be able to stir anything that precipitated out back in so I would try whisking the lotion back together!
