Add all of the ingredients to a clean blender. You will need to blend the ingredients together at a very high speed for just one timed minute. Once blended, the mixture should have a thick consistency.

You will need to take a spoon and remove the mixture from the blender. Place it into ant air tight container. Take the time to quickly add 6-8 drops of an essential oil to make your cream a certain frangrant scent. Remember to keep in mind that each scent has a different effect that is made on the body and the mind. You may want to consult with an essential oils reference guide before just choosing one. Store the cream in the air tight container and make sure to restore after use. You may consider using a nice bottle to store the massage cream for each use.

This sounds like it would be wonderful! I only let a massage therapist touch me one time.. she was so hard on my shoulder... it hurt so much when she did it.. but if felt relief when she let go of it and it didn't hurt the rest of the day... but that pain was so intense I would never let another person massage my shoulder like that.

i've doubled the beeswax and it is still not thick, any suggestions?
