Is there a general rule about increasing/decreasing beeswax in lotion bars?

Love lotions bars?  But you have wondered about tweeking the amount of beeswax in your recipe. In a recent posting from Point of Interest called Is there a general rule about increasing/decreasing beeswax in lotions bars? explains that there is really no general rule but you just have to see when the recipe has been hardened.  But if you are going to do some trial and error, remember to take good notes on the amounts that you use so that once you find the consistency that you like that you know how much you used.
