Here is the free printable for this wonderful stuff.  I'll give you the recipe and how-to below.

This is almost exactly like the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, but much, much cheaper.

Time: 15 mins.
Makes: 1 (to make more, just double, triple, or quadruple)

1 T. coconut oil
1/8 tsp. beeswax
1/8 tsp. sweet almond oil
5- 10 drops lemon essential oil
metal tin (I got mine here for .46c)

In a glass bowl, melt the beeswax in the microwave. This usually takes about 60 seconds.
Next, add the coconut oil and melt in the microwave.  About 30 seconds. Add the sweet almond oil. You may have to melt a bit after adding if the beeswax hardens when you add the almond oil.

Add the essential oils and pour into your chosen containers.

Allow to cool slowly (don't get impatient and put them in the fridge to cool, I did this and had to re-melt them, as it causes the oils to separate).


  1. Tried this and I absolutely love it! So moisturizing, yet not greasy or gross. It smells AMAZING too. I'm going to need to make some more!

  2. I make and sell homemade bath and body products and this was a disaster for me. I will reformulate.

    1. Hello, I'm sorry to hear that this didn't work out for you. If you'd like to elaborate on what was disastrous, I may be able to help you out. Without knowing what went wrong, I can still try to troubleshoot a bit for you:

      Too runny: I do live up north where things are always a bit colder, so if it was too liquid-y, it may have been because you live in a warmer climate than I do. Try adding a little extra beeswax.

      Too hard: Add a little extra sweet almond oil- because you're working with natural oils, time of year and temperature can be cause for changes in texture.

      Oil Separation: As I said in the recipe, when I got impatient and put mine in the refrigerator to cool, the oils separated. It's best to allow these to cool slowly at room temperature.

      Hope that works for you! I made twelve of these as Christmas presents this year and didn't have problems with any of them, so I hope you have better luck next time!
