1/4 cup emulsifying wax

125% mix with wax/oil mixture at this point it will turn milky white. Add essential oil. I then put in my blender and blend for a few minutes. Then put in containers of choice. If it does not set up like lotion just reheat in the microwave till hot. Blend again and pour into containers. There are things you can add a little of and will not effect the consistency of the lotion. Some examples are vit. E, glycerin, cocoa butter.
