How to make wax at home-Do It Yourself



Hair removal is one of the common beauty practices. There are various ways to remove body hair like shaving, hair removal creams etc. but waxing is the safest one and you can prepare homemade organic wax that too in an easy and cost effective way.

Ingredients required:

  • Granulated Sugar (200 grams)
  • Honey (150-200 grams)
  • ½ Lemon
  • Essential oil (10 drops)

Method:

Take granulated sugar in a saucepan and melt it on a medium flame. Allow the sugar to boil for two minutes (keep stirring it well using a wooden spoon to prevent it from burning). Once sugar attains the brown color, add aromatic essential oil (of your choice) into the sugar to render fragrant appeal. Now add honey to the saucepan and stir well (on a medium flame). Squeeze lemon juice into the mixture while you stir. Sieve the mixture using a clean cotton towel and allow it to rest for 2 minutes. Knead the mass (until its golden yellow) and store it in an airtight container.
