<p>• 1 ounce vitamin E oil<br />
• 4 ounces sweet almond oil<br />

• 1 ounce jojoba oil<br />
• 1 ounce coconut oil<br />
• 1 teaspoon oil of calendula<br />
• 1/8 teaspoon oil of chamomile<br />
• 1/8 teaspoon oil of rose geranium</p>
<p>1. Combine the vitamin E and sweet almond oils in a nonreactive saucepan. Heat over low heat (do not boil). Gradually add the beeswax, stirring constantly. Add the jojoba oil, a little at a time, and stir until well blended. Slowly stir in the coconut oil.</p>
<p>2. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the calendula, chamomile, and rose geranium oils, stirring the mixture until it is smooth.</p>
<p>3. When the mixture has cooled, pour it into colored glass jars and seal them tightly. Keep refrigerated.</p>
