  • 2 oz beeswax
  • 2 oz coconut oil or 1/4 cup
  • 2 oz shea butter
  • 2 tbsp Apricot Oil
  • 4 Vitamin E capsules
  • 8 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 8 drops Vanilla essential oil
  • Deodorant container - see notes for where you can buy one.


  • In a glass jar measure out your beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil. The best way to do this is with a scale and weigh each out as you go.
  • Place your glass jar or jug into a saucepan filled with a small amount of water in the bottom. You need enough water to fill up to about 1/4 of the way up your glass jar. Don't overfill as you will risk getting water in your oil mixture as it's melting.
  • Turn your stove onto low to medium and let the oils and wax melt together.
  • Once melted and beeswax fully dissolved, take off heat and wait for about 2 minutes to slightly cool.
  • Add the vitamin E. Pierce the capsules with a clean pin or needle and squeeze the oil out.
  • Add the essential oils and give a quick stir.
  • The mix should be starting to turn opaque now.
  • Quickly pour your mix into your container, before it begins to set.


To make this recipe really fancy you could add some lavender petals towards the end.
