Coconut Beeswax Hand Salve
Coconut Beeswax Hand Salve has got to be one of the best products. It is homemade, easy, fast, inexpensive, and all-natural.
I took store bought coconut oil and beeswax in a 10:1 ratio and heated both to a liquid. I combined them, mixed, then poured it into a container where it solidified quickly with no cracking. The containers were perfect, just like store bought hand salve containers, that I got at The Container Store.
When I applied it, it was rich and moist like coconut and yet was sealed in by the beeswax. I washed my hands gently and the water beaded off on the applied area. It smelled nice and felt great.
Coconut is really the original moisturizer and beeswax is the original wax. I was just looking at how companies make candles. They wax is an industrial by-product, it produces suet, and burns faster. Beeswax is all-natural, cleans the air, and burns far longer. It can also be used to waterproof leather shoes, seal cutting boards, and makes great candles.
This was a very easy project that I did with minimal supplies quickly and had the ability to scale down for a first try.
