Using a double boiler slowly melt the Beeswax
over low heat until fully melted. Then add
Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil
while stirring continuously. Take a small
sample out and let it cool to room
temperature to test consistency. If it is
too liquid add more beeswax, if it is too
thick add a bit more coconut oil.  You can store salve in a small glass mason jar , a metal tin or any clean recycled container.
