Too Thick

Lotion woes.  The last batch ran like water, way too thin.  In an effort to thicken it, I added lots of coconut oil.  So much we now can't pump it.

Here's the problem recipe:
2 c coconut oil
1 c jojoba oil
1 c grapeseed oil
1 c beeswax
2 c water

In reviewing it, I see I didn't put in any olive oil at all.  Guess I melt it all back down, add plenty of olive oil and re-whip.  I'll let you know how it goes.

I wonder what in your lotion keeps me from getting or nips in the bud, athlete's feet fungus. This stuff really works for me. Thank you for giving me some.

Maybe the coconut oil. It's supposed to be anti-microbial. Glad you like it!
