Almond Joy Body Lotion

1/2 cup water
1/8 tsp. borax powder
1/2 cup almond oil
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. grated beeswax
2 Tbsp. honey
3-4 drops orange Essential Oil (optional)

Mix water and borax together, stirring until well mixed. Set aside. Mix together the almond oil, coconut oil, honey, and beeswax in a glass measuring cup. Place the cup with the oils-beeswax mixture in a pan of water (about 1 to 2" of water), making a water bath. Heat over medium heat until the beeswax is melted (8 to 10 min.), stirring occasionally. When the wax is melted, bring the water/borax solution almost to boiling (put the glass cup with the water/borax in the microwave on High for 1 min., or use a water bath on the stove top). Remove the oil-beeswax mixture from the water bath and pour into blender. Slowly add water/borax to the mixture in the blender and whip. Allow the lotion to cool completely. The consistency may seem a bit thin, but it will thicken as it cools. You may add the orange Essential Oil now if you wish. Pour into a lidded container. To use: massage a small amount into your skin.
