Lemon Lavender Beeswax Hand Creme

Lemon Lavender Beeswax Hand Creme

When you're done, pamper yourself with this nourishing hand cream. 

Make one for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for friends or family!

1 small clean jar ($1.50 at Michaels)
1 cup coconut oil (I like Trader Joe's Organic, Virgin oil best)
1/2 cup sesame or sweet almond oil
2 oz beeswax (ea. bar is an ounce)
1 small stove top pan and 1 large

Fill the large pan 1/2 way with water. Bring to a boil. 

Combine oils and beeswax in small pan, place over boiling water. 

Heat just until the beeswax melts. Beeswax burns easily so you may want to pull it off the stove just before it's fully melted. When the wax is fully melted add 20 drops of lavender and 5-10 drops of lemon essential oil. Keep in mind the lemon will overpower the lavender. 

Move quickly and pour the oils, beeswax, and essential oil into your small jar as the oil will begin to set. The oil has a really beautiful golden hue when it completely sets. I had enough left over to keep one and give three other little jars away as gifts!

I finished it off with a jute tie, gift tag, and calligraphy pen. Enjoy!


Cicily Carter

Originally from Denver, Cicily moved to Boulder in 2011 where she first stepped into a Boulder yoga studio. The culture around the studio and the sense of community drew her back to the studio time and time again. She was drawn the wisdom of her instructors and the balance her practice provided in her life. She had come to the mat for an exercise but she found she was leaving with a lot more. After realizing how much yoga was changing every avenue of her life, she took a leap of faith and enrolled in a 200 hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training in October 2012 and has been teaching yoga daily ever since. Cicily is thankful she discovered yoga early in her life and she aims to inspire confidence, happiness, and joy in her students.
