1. Melt coconut oil and beeswax in a microwave safe bowl by heating in 30 second increments, stirring in-between, until the mixture is liquid and smooth.
2. Stir in the Shea butter until melted.
3. Add essential oils a little at a time. Start with 10 drops of each and then add more until desired scent is reached.

Do you like to use homemade beauty products and homemade cleaners? I love the ability to make products to use in my home that are all natural and safe which is why I am a big fan of essential oils. Young Living essential oils are my favorite oils because they are some of the best essential oils on the market. I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
