Outdoor Lotion

1 cup sweet almond oil or  apricot kernel oil
3/4 ounce beeswax
1 cup lukewarm water-based liquid like green tea, hydrosol, rainwater or aloe juice
28 drops lemon eucalyptus essential oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
4 drops grapefruit essential oil
2 drops geranium essential oil
Add beeswax to oil in a Pyrex cup or bowl. Place in a hot water bath. Heat until melted. Allow the mixture to cool.

Place the water-based liquid in a blender. When the temperatures of the oil and water are comparable, turn on the blender and add the oil in a thin stream. Blend until a cream develops. Blend in the essential oils and store in a jar in the refrigerator.
We Suggest
A pinch of Sodium Borate (Borax) dissolved in the water prior to blending will help emulsify the mixture and prevent separation.
