Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Basic Ointment Recipe

Easy to make basic ointment. I made this is a small batch as an experiment and loved it. It could be made in larger quantities to suite your needs.

3/4 Tbsp. beeswax pellets
1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa butter, grated (as noted below)
1/2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 Tbsp. almond oil
1/2 Tbsp. jojoba oil
3 drops patchouli e.o.
3 drops lavender e.o.

Note: I purchase my cocoa butter in chunks and use the grater blade in a food processor to grate it. I store the grated cocoa butter in a tightly sealed glass jar. Grating the cocoa butter ahead of time makes it very easy to use when needed.

While waiting for the water to heat in the double boiler, partially submerge the sealed bottle of coconut oil in hot water in the sink to liquify it. When the double boiler is ready, melt the beeswax pellets and grated cocoa butter. Remove from heat and add all of the oils. I use a clean wooden chopstick to stir everything together. Let cool slightly. Stir in the essential oils. Pour into a clean glass jar and seal tightly. Label the jar with the ingredients and date it was made.
