Hi All/
              I know Cynthia has made her own wax mixture coating and the subject has been breached before.  I make my own from baby oil IE:Mineral oil and grated bees wax and it works fine but I was thinking has anyone used Olive oil or Corn oil or Rapeseed oil with and essential oil added for a scent mixed with beeswax.

Hi Roly,

It's not recommended that you use olive oil and grapeseed oil because they can go rancid. Mineral oil doesn't go rancid.
