1 T liquid lecithin
2 T fractionated coconut, macadamia nut, flaxseed or other light vegetable oil
1 T virgin coconut oil
1 t rice bran oil
1/8 t borax
1/2 cup distilled water
1-2 drops neroli or rose essential oil (optional) or
1-2 drops any fragrance oil for scent (optional)


Mix together the lecithin, vegetable oil, coconut oil and rice bran oil.
In a separate container dissolve borax in the distilled water.
Gently heat the lecithin and oils until the coconut oil melts. Heat the borax-water solution. You could heat in the microwave (for 45 seconds on High) or in a water bath. Pour the heated solution into the lecithin and oils. Stir until well mixed. You can use the blender.
Add essential oil, cool completely and pour into a clean container. You can adjust the consistency by adding less or more water.
