2. Remove from heat and stir in essential oils and vitamin E.
3. Stir the mixture well and immediately pour into a container. Allow to harden overnight.

From BBTG:
"So how does our balm work?

Beeswax is rich in Vitamin A and has fantastic emollient properties that help in promoting cells to develop healthily. Whilst the beeswax helps your skin the Shea butter (which we use in a lot of our DIYs so stock up) is full of Vitamin A, E and F that provide intense moisturising helping in taming and softening your beard. Argan oil is widely used to soften hair but it is also a fantastic anti-oxidant protecting your beard from free radicals."
