How To Make "chelipepper" brand baby/body ointment

    Melt all ingredients -except honey- together in a double boiler. U CAN melt them over direct heat in a single saucepan, but I prefer the slower and more even/gentle melt the double boiler gives because it gives a smoother product. Do NOT melt in the microwave as your finished consistency will not be as nice and your product will not be as stable

    Using a hand mixer, whip the melted ingredients together til smooth and well blended. Let cool and start to form into a creamy consistency, whipping for 30 seconds or so every 5 mins. Once the mixture begans to be opaque and begins to hold texture, whip in the honey. (If you whip the honey in before the mixture is cool enough, it will separate out) After u mix the honey in, you can jar it and let it cool the rest of the way.
