We used equal parts coconut oil, almond oil, and beeswax...good with and without scent....next we added equal part shea nut butter and was even more creamy...shea nut butter has a strong natural scent that isn't offensive but also isn't "pretty." Added essential oils to scent strength preference...used amazon to save money on supplies....addicted to these!
