If you don’t have the specific blend “Citrus Fresh” essential oil, try lemon, orange or grapefruit or a combination of the three.

I grab some of my ingredients from Amazon:

  • Beeswax in pellet form is easiest to measure and use.
  • Cocoa Butter comes in a hard block. Simply shave off the desired amount with a sharp knife.
  • Shea Butter is a thick paste-like ingredient.
