|Grapefruit & Rosemary Body Butter|
I wanted to combine the wholesome yumminess of Burt’s Bee’s with the exotic smell of my favorite perfume Jo Malone’s grapefruit and rosemary.
The result was an incredible delight for both your nose and your skin that is perfume free (all essential oils).
- 2 tsp beeswax
Yaley 100% Beeswax Pellets – 4 oz./Natural
- 1/4c Cocoa Butter
RAW Cocoa Butter 1 Lb
1/4c coconut oil

1tsp light sesame oil
Aura Cacia – Organic Skin Oil Sesame, 4 fl oz liquid
1 1/4t apricot kernal oil
Aura Cacia Apricot Kernel Oil 4 oz.
2 tsp 12000 IU Vitamen E
Jason Natural Cosmetics Pure Beauty Oil, 5,000 IU Vitamin E Oil – 4 fl oz
5 oz Plastic or Glass Container
16 drops grapefruit essential oil
Grapefruit (Pink) Essential Oil. 10 ml. 100% Pure, Undiluted, Therapeutic Grade.
14 drops rosemary essential oil
Organic Rosemary Essential Oil. 10 ml. 100% Pure, Undiluted, Therapeutic Grade.
1. Place all ingredients except essential oils into a glass jar and place into a pan of unheated water. *You can also use a double boiler if you’d like, I prefer this method because it’s easier to clean up. Do NOT ever put cold glass into boiling water, you might shatter the glass.
2. Turn the heat onto high and melt the wax and cocoa butter. Stir as needed until the oil is well blended.
3. Remove the mixture from the the heat and add in the oils.
4. Transfer it to container that can be well sealed.
Whole Foods, Amazon, Target, and some pharmacies carry the supplies.
I found that the residue of the wax stayed on the jar. I cleaned it out as much as possible by wiping the inside with a paper towel after I poured the mixture because I didn’t want the wax to get on my good pans or in the drain.
