Ingredients

  • 25 grams beeswax
  • 10 grams shea butter
  • 20 grams avocado oil
  • 10 ml apricot kernal oil
  • 20 grams cocoa butter
  • 15 grams almond oil
  • 3 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops orange essential oil
  • 3 drops lemongrass essential oil

Instructions

  1. Add water to a small saucepan, filling it about a 1/3 full
  2. Add all of the ingredients (except the essential oils) to a bowl that will sit over the sauce pan without the base touching the water
  3. Turn on the heat to a medium temperature and stir the ingredients in the bowl until they are almost melted. This will take a few minutes. *Do not allow the ingredients to reach 70 degrees or higher or the oils will start to degrade.
  4. Remove from the heat and continue stirring until all of the solid ingredients have dissolved
  5. Use a stick blender on low speed to add some air into the mixture to commence the cooling process.
  6. Once the mixture starts to become a little lighter in color add the essential oils and give it another whiz to combine
  7. Use a small spatula or spoon to add the mixture to a clean steralised jar. It will be the consistency of mayonnaise at this point in time as it continues to cool.
  8. Seal the container and store in a cool dark location.
  9. Use as required but don't attempt to put your strappy high heeled shoes on immediately after applying! It will need to be absorbed.

Recipe Notes

Ensure that all of the equipment you use is clean prior to using it. Dip the stick blender and any spoons used into boiling water prior to using.
To steralise jars with plastic lids: Add the jars to a sauce pan of cold water, bring it to a boil and allow to boil for a few minutes. Remove with tongs and place upside down to drain on a clean towel.
All measurements are in GRAMS not in mls (including all liquids).
Ensure that you use only pure essential oils from a reputable brand.
Do not use any essential oils if you are pregnant or have a health condition without consulting a doctor first.
