Subject: You are so smart Tamara - they worked! Recipe included.
Here's what I tried, thanks to your suggestions. They worked perfectly!
Molded Massage Oil (Little solid balls/shapes)
4 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening
3 tablespoons solid cocoa butter
2 tablespoons solid coconut oil
1 tablespoon beeswax
1 tablespoon paraffin wax
10 drops orange essential oil(or whatever you like.)
Heat all the above, except essential oil, in a microwave (power 7) for approximately 3 minutes or melt in a double boiler.
Stir until liquid.
Beat for several minutes until emulsified and slightly thick. If it isn't thickening, place your bowl in ice water as you beat it. ( I use my Braun handmixer).
Add in essential oil.
Pour into metal or lightly oiled plastic/glass molds.(Chocolate molds work well and are about the right amount for a body massage.)
Refrigerate until set.
Wrap in plastic and store in a cool place.
To use, just simply hand warm your molded oil and give a massage to your
fav person!!! (or give yourself a foot massage!)
