NadaZneka: I don't mean any disrespect but this is not cream lotion or body butter. This is salve. I
have been making medicinal salve for years. this a good proper base you
just dont have any herbs in it. Lotion is completely different because
it is an emulsion of water and oils. I know there are alot of
Correctness nazis out there and i am not one of them I just thought you
and others would want to know.
"What is the difference between a Lotion vs. Cream vs. Salve?
Salve- A salve is simply
a combination of oil(s) and beeswax.  Beeswax is melted with the oil
and then when it cools it will harden into your desired consistency.  It
can also have other things added to it (essential oils, butters,
vitamin E, etc.)  but it does not contain water.  This gives it a long,
stable shelf life (without added preservatives. The beeswax acts as a
preservative in this case).
Lotion: A lotion is
created when you take oil & water and blend it together using an
emulsifying agent, typically emulsifying wax or beeswax.  Lotion usually
has a higher concentration of water to oil (70% water, 20% oil, 10%
emulsifying agent).  Depending on whether or not you use preservatives,
lotions will have a shorter shelf life due to the high concentration of
water. (Lotions like creams are made
with water and thus in order to have a stable shelf life, they either
need to have preservatives added, or if you don't want to use a
preservative, you need to store this at cool temperatures such as in the
refrigerator in order to prevent the growth of yeast and bacteria. In
which case they will last approx. 3-4 months.
Cream: A cream is also created when you take oil
& water and blend it together using an emulsifying agent, typically
emulsifying wax or beeswax.  Creams have a higher concentration of oil
in them than lotions (45% water, 45% oil, 5-10% emulsifying agent),
making them thicker, heavier and more moisturizing. (Like
lotions, creams have water and thus need a preserving agent or should
be stored in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life. You can make a
cream with a lower percentage of water, and a higher percentage of oil.
e.g. 15-20% water or hydrosol, 60-80% oils & butters, 10-15%
emulsifying agent)
Body Butter: A body butter is created by blending natural butters like shea butter, cocoa, butter and/or mango butter.
 My body butter recipes usually tend to be a blend of butters and
liquid carrier oils making them more malleable and easy to apply and
absorb into the skin. (An example would be 60-70% butters and 30-40% oils)"

salve; plural noun: salves1. an ointment used to promote healing of the
skin or as protection.synonyms:ointment, cream, balm, unguent,

[loh-shuh n] noun
1. Pharmacology. a liquid, usually aqueous or sometimes alcoholic
preparation containing insoluble material in the form of a suspension or
emulsion, intended for external application without rubbing, in such
skin conditions as itching, infection, allergy, pain, or the like

Lydia casper: Lds forever , x

Dora Hand: I purchase a bottle of vitamin e and keratin oil from Walmart and from the health food store. No squeezing tiny capsules. The most I've ever paid is 7$ for several ounces. Lasts me a while and I use a lot in just about everything hygienic.

James Pellosma: Do you have any recommendation on where to buy beeswax? I've tried 3 different places and it always smells like cigarette smoke. I know that there will always be a slight smokey scent because the bees are smoked to harvest the honey/wax, but it has been overpowering.

jacob elliott: Does beeswax go bad ?

Lucile Barjot: Hi, thanks for the video. I was wondering, can your replace coconut oil by Shea butter ? Or do a mix of the two ?

Olesarge_USMC: Glad all of the materials melted down. It would be nice to let someone know how much of EACH you used. Total waste of time. Disliked.

Cleo Johnson: Thanks.

Gail a Beekeeper in England: Hi
Great video
How long will the hand lotion keep for ?

Kristina .Musser: thanks for the video! do you sell that beeswax by any chance? thanks

Val Cronin: That's SO FUNNY I just made some ingredients for my lotion tonight and I happen to be using coconut oil, virgin olive oil, vitamin e gel caps that i have to squeeze, and beeswax and essential oils! I am doing a few more things like heating herbs in the oil and adding some butters and beef tallow and an oil (tamanu oil) i picked out especially for the properties it will have on the skin. Also honey, cod liver oil, peg 400 i have lying around from vaporizer fluid, vanilla, MSM, castor oil, pre-made herb extracts that aren't in alcohol. Well thanks very much for the video!

Ferman Ali sierer: plz mention the quantity


Kelly van Frankenhuyzen: i don't see the actual recipe for amounts of each..??

angelina tatlonghari: Can You Use Shea Butter Instead Of Coconut Oil ?

Ludimmean: To infuse oil: Fill a jar half way with your choice of dried medicinal herbs, then fill it up the rest of the way with olive oil (or whatever liquid carrier oil you prefer), then close the jar and store it in a dark place for at least 6 weeks (shaking it every few days). The longer you let it infuse, the better it will be. When it's done infusing, strain it through a cheesecloth or muslin and use the herbal oil to make your balm/ointment.

Ludimmean: Not really a lotion. A lotion is an emulsion of water-soluble and oil-soluble ingredients. This is a balm or ointment. If you infuse the oil with medicinal herbs, you'll have a medicinal ointment/balm. Many essential oils have great medicinal properties as well. I have a recipe that seems to be great for any type of wounds, rashes, burns...

phoggee: if you don't put the essential oil, does it give you the rancid oil smell when applied to the skin?

Lisa Mercer: Excellent video !

NcScbeach1: Great Video....Thanks!  I did try a few times, and the fist time it worked great!  The next time {two times} I tried this, I found that my wax came out with tiny lumps. I admit I used the microwave, because I didn't want any moisture from the boiling water to get into the mixture {inside the jar}.  I'm wondering if using a solid beeswax block [1-2lb block} caused the lumps/graininess in my product?  I noticed that when I broke off junks from the beeswax block, that the inside of the wax had somewhat of a different texture and color {in places}.  What are your thoughts?
