1/8 tsp. borax
1/3 cup sweet almond oil
1 T. liquid lanolin
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 T. beeswax
15 drops raspberry fragrance oil
5 drops oatmeal, milk and honey fragrance oil


Combine water and borax in heavy pan over low heat; stir until borax dissolves. In separate saucepan, melt beeswax and add oils and lanolin, stirring until all well blended. Slowly (1 tsp at a time) add water/borax mixture into oil/wax mixture stirring constantly. Continue stirring until it forms a thick white cream and has cooled to room temp.
