If you are not a fan of commercial emulsifiers in your lotion try this simple offering using beeswax to emulsify, and tapioca flour to take away the greasy feel that so often accompanies this type of product

Phase 1
5gm beeswax
100gm of carrier oil of choice (I used olive oil)

Phase 2
60gm tapioca flour
6 drops essential oil or fragrance oil of choice

Using a double boiler on medium to low heat, gently warm phase 1 until the wax is melted.   Stir the oil into the wax thoroughly and allow to totally cool.
Add phase 2 and mix thoroughly with a whisk or electric beaters. (if the product is not cool enough separation may occur)

Note: For thicker lotion add 5 to 10gms additional beeswax
