3/4 cup cocoa butter
1/3 cup oil olive oil
4 TBS bee’s wax pellets
1 cup distilled water
10 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops grapefruit seed extract
Melt the cocoa butter, olive oil and bee’s wax in a double boiler*, stirring occasionally. Once melted set aside and let cool to room temperature. It will appear creamy and semisolid. Add the essential oil and grapefruit seed extract. Pour into a blender, turn onto the highest level creating a vortex. Slowly drizzle in the water creating a constant stream. Continue to blend until thick and light color, similar to frosting. Pour into desired jars, it will thicken as it sets.
*If you don’t have a double boiler you can make a makeshift one out of a sauce pan, a glass pyrex measuring cup and a dish rag. Put a dish rag in the bottom of your sauce pot, place the glass measuring cup inside and fill the pot with water until the measuring cup in 1/2 submerged. The cloth is to keep the measuring cup from breaking.
