1 tsp beeswax

2 1/2 tsp shea butter

1/2 tsp essential oil (lemon, peppermint, cinnamon, etc)

Food coloring paste

Small container or tin

In a heatproof glass bowl, combine beeswax and shea butter.  Boil water in a saucepan on medium heat.  Place the bowl in the water, making sure water doesn’t get into the bowl.  Heat until shea butter and beeswax liquefy.  Remove bowl from heat and add essential oil.  Stir until mixture becomes slushy.  Stick a toothpick into the food coloring paste and add a drop at a time to the slush.  Scoop into container and smooth out top.
