Finished lotion

Boil water add borax and mix well. Heat grape-seed oil and grated beeswax until melted in a double boiler, I made a make shift one with a pan of water and a jar, it kept a mess from happening.  Put the melted wax oil combo in a small mixing bowl and mix with a mixer, slowly add borax, water and essential oil mixture slowly. Continue to mix until it’s creamy. Store in an airtight container. This smells summery which is what I wanted. It feels good and absorbs seemingly well.
