.25 oz. beeswax
.25 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
.35 oz. safflower oil
.75 oz. evening primrose oil
.25 oz. shea butter
.1 oz. stearic acid
.1 oz. light agave syrup
15 drops fir needle essential oil
9 drops patchouli essential oil


Using a digital scale weigh out the shea butter and stearic acid then melt either at reduced power in the microwave or in a double boiler.

Once melted, weigh out the shea butter and coconut oil and stir in. Gently heat again if needed if shea butter and coconut oil don’t melt fully after stirring.

Now weigh out the safflower and evening primrose oils and agave syrup and stir into the cream mixture. Follow with the essential oils mixing well, then pour into a 2 oz. glass jar or tin of choice and allow to set up fully before use.

To use simply apply to skin as desired and massage in.
