Using a double-boiler method to melt the beeswax. To do this, heat 1-2 inches of water in a saucepan over medium heat, bringing water to a simmer. Place the heat-safe glass with beeswax directly into the water to gently melt the beeswax. Stir occasionally. This process will take approximately 15 minutes.
Add the coconut oil to the measuring glass with the melted beeswax, stirring gently (do not remove from boiler). Once melted, add the olive oil (or Paradise Springs Jojoba Oil) and continue to stir over medium heat. Stir until combined.
Once the ingredients are melted, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Add 30 drops of Rosemary Oil and 20 drops of Lavender Oil (feel free to modify the ratio to your preference, using more or less of each oil and you see fit).
Stir mixture gently with a wooden spoon until incorporated before pouring into metal tins for storage.
