Melt the beeswax, shea butter and cocoa butter in a pot over very low heat until liquefied.

Add the virgin coconut oil, apricot kernel oil and vitamin E oil to the melted ingredients and continue to heat for 15 - 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool for 2 minutes. Add the combination of flavor oils and the mica powder and stir well. Add more flavor if the scent is not strong enough.
