So I had this brain storm idea that Id make lotion bars for some gifts for my sons school . I used a recipe from a book called Beeswax Alchemy and I don't know it seems a bit soft + greasy. Can someone please take a look at the recipe and tell me what you think, please. Im not good at converting % to weight, ok, I suck at it lol ! Thanks for looking. Oh, Im poring them in milky way round bee molds + placing in 2 oz tins... heres the exact recipe in the book. Also would adding a touch of cornstarch help at all in terms of greasiness - thank you again yellow beeswax - 27 g / 30.20% ( i used local beeswax from my farmers market ) virgin Coconut oil - 6g / 6.90% sweet almond oil - 12g / 13.8% ( I used apricot oil here) jojoba 12g / 13.80% ( I used meadow foam + argan) thats what I have at hand. shea butter / 10g / 10.50% (Refined) cocoa butter 12g / 10.50% mango butter 5g / 5.30% Vit E 0.1 g Im using lavender EO
Any favorite suppliers for shea butter . Ive purchased refined from BB - nice but just ok. Once i bought a small 1lb jar to test from Mountain Rose herbs ( unrefined certified organic) I was so surprised - it stunk to high heaven and was grainy - real grainy + EXPENSIVE ! What about kokum has anyone used that one - sounds interesting but pricey I love it in body butter + lotion bars
