This looks fun and easy! I'd like to make the emulsifying wax from scratch, without any petroleum-based products or other "scary things" ;-) Any ideas how? :)
I buy many of my health and beauty ingredients from Mountain Rose Herbs. Their emulsifying wax is plant derived, though it does take a good bit of processing to do so. It's probably your best choice, but they give you the full rundown on it, so you can decide if it works for you.
