2 oz. Coconut Oil
1 oz. Beeswac
1 Clean/Sterilized Container
1 Double Boiler
Instructions:First, sterilize your container and lid with rubbing alcohol and set it aside for later use. Prepare your double boiler. If you do not own a double boiler, make one by putting a small pot on the stove with about an inch of water, then place a heat-safe bowl in the pot. Use a bowl big enough to rest in the pot without touching the water at the bottom.
You will then melt an ounce of beeswax in the bowl. I use Frontier Natural White Beeswax Beads from iHerb.com. Once the beeswax has melted completely, add your castor and coconut oils. At this time, you may want to add an essential oil, of choice.
Heat thoroughly and stir to the bottom of the bowl. Before it starts to set, transfer the warm pomade to your sterilized container, that you set aside earlier, and place it in the freezer uncovered to cool.
Side Note If the pomade cools down gradually, you will end up with granules in your pomade and you will have to warm and emulsify longer before applying.
Freezing the pomade will cause it to set up quickly and which will result in a smooth pomade.
If you like Oyin Handmade Sugar Pomade, you will LOVE this recipe. The two are extremely comparable in appearance, texture, and performance.
Oyin Handmade Sugar Pomade Recipe
You can stretch your Oyin Handmade Sugar Pomade by just adding a tablespoon of Oyin's Burnt Sugar Pomade to a bowl and melt it down with the two oils. You will get the smell you love and the same basic product at a fraction of the cost.
