  • 2 ounces Beeswax (56 grams)
  • 2 ounces Shea Butter (56 grams)
  • 2 ounces Coconut Oil (56 grams)
  • 10 drops Orange Essential Oil
  • 6 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon (optional)


  1. Heat beeswax in a double boiler or in a bowl over a water bath. When almost melted, reduce heat to ensure water is not boiling and add shea butter and coconut oil.

  2. Once the shea butter and coconut oil are melted, take the oils off the stove and add essential oils and cinnamon, stirring to combine.

  3. Pour mixture into molds, muffin forms or other container you are using. Allow to cool. For faster cooling, put them in the fridge once set.

  4. Once hardened, remove the bars from the molds and use as desired. Store them in a jar, tin or bag until needed. Keep in fridge if you live in a hot area.
