Beeswax Lotion Helps Construction Worker with Dry Hands
Did you know that beeswax lotion is a miracle balm? It was the first day of Spring Fever in the Garden 2018. A gentleman came to our booth and bought five bars of beeswax. So, we asked him how he likes to use them. He said that he is a construction worker. Because he works a lot with cement, his hands dry out quickly and painfully.
He has a favorite beeswax moisturizer recipe of his own make. He says it works miracles on his dry, cracked hands after a long day pouring concrete. He loves Allison’s Apiaries beeswax because of how well it moisturizes.
Bees have eight glands in their lower abdomen that produce beeswax. Like other non-petroleum waxes, beeswax consists primarily of lipids or what are more commonly known as fats.
In addition to people in old-times making tallow candles and lotions from melted animal fats mixed with other substances, they also melted and mixed beeswax for the same purpose. Allisons’ Apiaries even sells a locally-made lip balm made from beeswax!
We thought our site visitors and wonderful customers would like a recipe or two…or ten…on how to make beeswax lotion using Allisons’ Apiaries low-cost, high-quality beeswax. Here are the top 8 best beeswax lotion and moisturizer cream recipes.
WellnessMama’s Homemade Natural Lotion Recipe
WellnessMama’s lotion recipe is, no doubt, the Internet’s most popular beeswax-based lotion recipe. It has been experimented and improved upon by many site visitors. They have collectively figured out the exact right mixtures of ingredients to get everything to mix (emulsify) properly.
There are several variations. One uses almond, jojoba, coconut, essential, and vitamin E oils along with shea and cocoa butter. Another includes aloe (for a lighter lotion). More types include a variety of oils to mix in for baby lotion, a cooling muscle rub, anti-aging face lotion, and scented lotions such as lavender and vanilla.
ASonomaGarden.com Beeswax Moisturizer Recipe
After months of experimentation, Kendra at ASonomaGarden.com has devised an easy-to-make beeswax-based hand lotion recipe. First, she started with an olive oil recipe that became very popular, but then got requests about how to make it with beeswax. After experimenting with several mixtures, she invented an easy one that uses natural ingredients.
She needed it to be something you’d like to make over and over again. In addition, it had to feel great to the touch and not have to mix oil and water. It had to be easy to clean up after making it, so she came up with a way to do all the preparation steps (mixing, melting, cooling, stirring, and storing) all in the same container!
Give her recipe a try and let us know in the comments how it worked for you!
Eclectic Domestic’s Beeswax Moisturizer
Celeste, who runs the YouTube channel “Eclectic Domestic“, shares a special recipe she makes for when her skin gets really dry in the winter months. She adds a few cubes of grated beeswax plus a variety of natural oils such as jojoba, apricot seed oil, and rosehip.
Then she uses a “hillbilly broiler” method (a glass containing the ingredients heated in a pan of water) to melt it all together, and then she stirs it. A lot. Later she adds avocado oil, aloe, lemon and carrot oils, and a drop of vitamin E oil, plus a few other things to make it creamy. In the end, she gets about 25 ml of beeswax-based skin cream. Here’s the video.
Deila Taylor’s Homemade Beeswax Body Butter
Deila Taylor’s great beeswax body butter recipe is super easy and results in a nice mason jar full of buttery body cream. She uses olive oil, coconut oil, beeswax pastilles (you can get the same effect grating a block of Allisons’ Apiaries Beeswax), and drops of any of your favorite essential oils such as lavender, lemon, orange, rose, etc.
When you’re done melting it, you just stir it every 15 minutes until it cools into a nice buttery texture that is easy to apply to your dry skin.
Rachel’s Beeswax Recipes
RachelsSupply.com is a website that offers several botanically-based products, including the ingredients for skincare products. Their Beeswax Products and Recipes page contains a number of helpful recipes which use beeswax as a base ingredient. They include:
- Moisturizing Vitamin E Cream
- Antiseptic Balm
- Herbal Salve
- Itch Relief Salve
- Coconut Butter Body Moisturizer
- Vaseline Type Jelly

- Pain Relief Salve
- Hand Cream
- Body Lotion
- Sweet Lavender Ointment

- Beeswax Wood Finish
- Beeswax Wood Conditioner
Try out any of the above recipes and let us know in the comments how they work. And, of course, a block of Allisons’ Apiaries beeswax is a less expensive alternative to processed beeswax pearls. You can grate just what you need from the block and store the rest for later. It lasts 25+ years!
DIYNatural.com’s Non-Greasy Homemade Lotion Recipe
Matt and Betsy at DIYNatural.com shared a recipe for a creamy moisturizer that helps repair dry skin after winter, but that can also be useful if you have dry skin through a hot and dry summer. They make it using aloe vera gel, distilled water (or strong brewed herbal tea), grated beeswax, some sweet almond, grapeseed, or jojoba oil, vitamin E oil and pure essential oil.
After the heating and melting process, they use a blender to keep a cooled mixture moving in a slow, continuous motion while adding the aloe vera mixture, then they transfer the moisturizer to jars and refrigerate what won’t be used within a few weeks.
Mrs. Homegrown’s Homemade Moisturizer
Made from all-natural beeswax, Mrs. Homegrown’s “whip” moisturizer is heavier than what you might be used to, but it can’t be said that it contains unnatural ingredients or petroleum products. With this recipe, all you need is olive oil, beeswax, water, and an essential oil of your choice to make it smell how you want.
Pop all of that into a double boiler (or improvise one if you don’t have one), melting it to an oil consistency, blending the oil with water using a stick blender, and then pouring it into jars. For this recipe, you’ll want to have a kitchen thermometer to ensure that the wax melts only between 160°F and 170°F. Cleanup is a little rough, but if you have some baking soda on hand, it will go easier.
The one thing you’ll want to note with this recipe (and any others like it) is that it doesn’t have any preservatives. That means bacteria can be introduced that will spoil the batch. Mrs. Homegrown details several precautions to minimize that risk.
Soap Queen’s DIY Beeswax & Honey Lotion Bars
The versatility of beeswax is what makes it so valuable as an ingredient in so many things. The melting point of beeswax helps us make awesome things like beeswax lotion bars! That’s right. You can turn beeswax into a bar of lotion that stays firm in storage but when you rub it on like soap, it melts onto your skin.
This is a perfect form of lotion that can be sent to friends and family as gifts or used at home on a regular basis. Just fire up your stove, melt and mix some beeswax with some olive oil, shea butter, and pure honey fragrance oil, pour them into any kind of silicone mold, let them cool, then package them into tins.
