  • Combine oils, butter, wax, and stearic acid in a heat proof container and heat in a hot water bath until all ingredients are melted. Stir to combine.
  • Heat water separately until slightly warm.
  • With a hand mixer, start beating oil/wax mixture. Slowly pour water into the oil mixture and continue beating on low until it takes on a creamy, buttery consistency.
  • Add fragrance oil or essential oil (no more than 1/2 teaspoon or so, if desired) after the mixture cools a bit and then transfer into jars.

A little goes a long way with this cream, so use sparingly. Use it anywhere that needs intense moisture or give to your skin a little extra pampering.
