Nourish your Body

Feed your thirsty skin with a beautiful homenade rose and honey scented beeswax body butter. You will need some rose essential oil (or your favourite scent), beeswax, honey, shea butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil – a few ingredients, but it is very easy to make and your skin will love it!


  • Approximately 1/2 cup of beeswax
  • 1 cup of shea butter
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of sweet almond oil
  • 12 drops of rose essential oil, or any other pure or blended essential oil e.g. Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Geranium
  • 1 teaspoon of honey


  1. Melt the beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler on top of the stove.
  2. When all ingredients are completely melted, remove from the heat for a short time, then add the almond oil.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl that is large enough to accommodate an electric beater and refridgerate for 15 – 20 minutes or until the mixture is hard, but soft enough to whip.
  4. Remove the butter from the fridge, add the rose oil and honey.
  5. Whip the butter using an electric beater until thoroughly mixed. The more air that is incorporated into the butter, the lighter it will be.
  6. Scrape the butter into jars or tins and it is ready to use.
