Ingredients:

  • 90g Coconut Oil– Organic, unrefined, virgin 
  • 65g Carrier Oil– I use organic and unrefined almond oil, jojoba oil or any other liquid carrier oil. 
  • 28.5g Beeswax– Preferably organic
  • 27.5g Shea Butter – Organic, unrefined
  • 40g Zinc Oxide – Non-nano, uncoated zinc oxide 
  • 1/2t Vitamin E oil

Tools:

  • Double-boiler (I make my own with a glass bowl over a simmering pot of shallow H2O)
  • Kitchen Scale
  • Mask (or hold your shirt over your mouth…you do not want to breathe in the zinc oxide, so make sure little ones aren’t around when you make this)
  • Container(s), preferably glass.  This recipe fits perfectly in 3 x 120ml glass jars

Make It:

  • Place your glass bowl on your scale, hit tare.
  • Add all ingredients (one-by-one, hitting tare in between) EXCEPT the zinc oxide, which you add at the end.
  • Place glass bowl over pot of shallow, slightly simmering H2O. Melt ingredients completely (stir with a whisk to help it along).
  • Carefully remove from stove and wipe down condensation on bowl (you do not want H2O getting into your product).
  • Place bowl on scale, hit tare.
  • Add zinc oxide…slowly…until you get to 40g. Again, add this slooooowly…as the zinc settles the amount will increase on your scale.
  • Whisk, whisk, whisk (and whisk some more!) and then carefully pour into container of your choice.
  • This will take a few minutes to set up…just walk away and leave it alone to quietly set up.
