  1. 1. Weigh and combine Jojoba Oil, Hempseed Oil, Argan Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil and Beeswax in the small pouring pitcher and place on heat to melt. Measure each oil individually and then add to the pouring pitcher. 
  2. 2. Once beeswax is fully melted stir the mixture together and take off the heat. Once the mixture starts to cool add the Vitamin E and Essential Oils. It is important to add the essential oils at a lower temperature since they are volatile oils and heat can kill off some of their properties. 
  3. 3. Stir mixture and pour into container! Let sit for 24 hours to cool then cap. 

Why We Choose These Ingredients:
