    Melt the ingredients

    Put coconut oil, grapeseed oil, lanolin and beeswax in a pan and place it on low heat over a double boiler. The ingredients need to be heated, until they have melted down nicely. If you have a dry skin, you can substitute a heavier oil in place of grapeseed oil. It is recommended that you use sweet almond oil or apricot oil as a replacement in such a scenario.
