Need help with a lotion base recipe. Answered

Hello, wasn't sure where to put this, and I didn't see a beauty forum. 

Well. first of all. here is a formula for a lotion base that I tweaked.

8 oz distilled water
1 oz fresh aloe vera gel
1 oz floral water

1 tsp citric acid
2 oz glycerin
1 oz emulsifying wax
1 oz beeswax
1 oz shea butter
1 oz coconut oil
1 oz almond oil
1 oz avocado oil
tsp essential oil
1/2 oz stearic acid

I heard that 1 oz is about 2 Tbsp (tablespoons), but still not sure on this.
It came out a bit thicker than I would like it.  I dunno if I should add more emulsifying wax, take out the beeswax, or both.  I need help making it less greasy feeling and a little thinner.  I made a batch I'm not sure what to do with.  I might just use it to repair those cases of dried out skin that appear around the winter season. 

Any suggestions?
