Beeswax Lotion Base Recipe


  • 1/4 cup beeswax pellets or grated beeswax
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond oil or olive oil
  • Optional: Essential oils for fragrance (e.g., lavender, peppermint, citrus)


  1. In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and almond oil (or olive oil) together, stirring occasionally until fully melted and combined.
  2. Once melted, remove the mixture from heat and allow it to cool slightly. If you're using essential oils for fragrance, you can add them at this point, stirring well to combine.
  3. Pour the mixture into clean, dry containers, such as jars or tins. Allow the lotion to cool and solidify completely before sealing the containers with lids.
  4. Your homemade beeswax lotion is now ready to use! Simply scoop out a small amount of lotion and massage it into your skin as needed. The lotion will be thick and luxurious, providing deep moisturization and protection for dry or rough skin.
  5. Store the lotion in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. It should keep for several months, but be sure to check for any signs of spoilage, such as changes in color or odor, before using.

Feel free to customize this recipe to suit your preferences by adjusting the ratio of oils or experimenting with different essential oil combinations for fragrance. Enjoy the nourishing benefits of this homemade beeswax lotion on your skin!
