Next, you want to melt all the ingredients together. The quickest way is to microwave it, but many people melt it over the stove as an alternative. If you’re just going to make enough for one person, I would suggest microwaving your mixture. To fill up multiple cans, melting it over the stove may be the best. To melt over the stove, put these ingredients into a container that can withstand simmering water (ie. glass). Create a double boiler by filling a pot about an inch of the way up with water and letting that come to a slight boil. Put your ingredients in a glass container and sit it in the boiling water for as long as it takes until all the ingredients melt together.
For this tutorial, place the mixture in the microwave on medium-high for one and a half minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to check the mixture. I found that the coconut oil melted the fastest, the shea butter following that, and the bits of beeswax taking the longest to melt.
