Lotion Sticks

Put into push up-containers, this is a great gift for nurses.

1 part beeswax
1 part cocoa butter or Shea butter *
1 part carrier oil (your choice)
1 part skin-safe fragrance or essential oil

* Cocoa butter will make a slightly harder product; Shea butter will make a slightly softer product.

Add beeswax, carrier oil of choice and butter of choice to a a Pyrex measuring glass. Place in microwave, and melt in 20-second increments until all is melted. Stir well.

Add fragrance or essential oil, and stir well. Pour into push-up stick (such as a lip balm-type container) or deodorant containers and let harden overnight.

WARNING: Shea butter is chemically related to latex, and will probably cause an allergic reaction in anyone who is type 1 latex-allergic.
