    here you go you'll need these recipe under materials list
    Carnauba wax
    Freezer bag
    Rolling pin
    Wooden spoon
    Oven mitts
    Lemon oil or
    Lavender oil
    Olive oil
    1. Mix 1 cup of olive oil and 20 drops of lavender essential. Mix all ingredients and let stand for 12 hours before you use it.
    2. Fill the pot with tap water and store oven- safe bowl over the pan. Turn on the stove over low heat. The water in the pot should just touch the bottom of the bowl.
    3. Input grated beeswax with 1.5 ounces and carnauba wax as much as 2 ounces. To get a carnauba wax with small pieces, put into the bag freezer and cover with a kitchen towel and press with a rolling pin.
    4. Pour the ingredients into the bowl of a double boiler. In this way, the material will be mixed with olive oil and lavender.
    5. Stir all ingredients with a wooden spoon until everything is mixed well. Stirring time depends on the temperature of your stove.
    6. Add 20 drops of lavender oil or lemon oil essential into the melted wax. The addition of this material is only used to provide a pleasant scent and is not an indispensable ingredient in this process.
    7. Lift the bowl from the pan of water and turn off the stove. Make sure you use gloves when lifting the bowl.
    8. Let stand until the mixture becomes cold but not solidify. When you pour it into the floor, making sure the mixture is not in hot conditions.
    9. If you want to use in another time, pour the mixture into a glass jar and store in a cool, dry place.
    Tips & Warnings
    • Intensify the scent of the polish by using dried lavender petals instead of oil.
    • Use care when working with a hot stove.

    Penny, this is a very interesting recipe. Could you give me further information for its application? Is this used as a bottled liquid floor wax...wiped on and allowed to dry...or is it treated as a paste wax, wiped on and buffed off?
