Lotion Instructions: This lotion is easy to make as-is but our tips will make it even easier. To start, pour 16 oz of Beeswax Lotion base into a large plastic baggie and drop in 2 ml of fragrance oil. Seal the plastic baggie and mush it around with your hands to combine the ingredients. Once fully incorporated, snip off a small corner of the plastic bag and squeeze the lotion into the containers. Cap ‘em, label ‘em and give ‘em away!
Salt Scrub Instructions: In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine 4 oz of Dead Sea Salt, 4 tbsp. of Sweet Almond oil and 2 ml of fragrance oil. Carefully spoon into the plastic containers, apply cap and label.
Candle Instructions: In a double boiler, melt 16 oz of White Beeswax. Once fully melted, turn off the burner, add 1 oz of fragrance oil and mix well. Then, carefully fill each candle tin with wax (we suggest slowly pouring from your pot or using a ladle). Once you've filled your candle tins, place a candle wick in the center of each tin. Let the candles cool for 4-6 hours. Then trim the wicks to ½ inch, apply the neatly labeled lid, and present your creation to a worthy recipient!
Tip: If you're having problems with leaning wicks, dip the base of the wick in the melted wax and center on the bottom of the tin. Then place 2 pencils horizontally on the tin, on each side of the wick. This will give the wick a little support as you pour the wax and the candle cools. Watch our Soap Queen TV candle video for more techniques.
