Solid Brilliantine Recipe
- 1 teaspoon Beeswax
- 2 tablespoons mink oil
- 1 tablespoon lanolin
- 2 teaspoons water
- 5 drops Orange extract
- 10 drops rum extract
- 10 drops Anise extract
Melt Beeswax, mink oil and lanolin over hot water in a wide-mouth glass jar until they are thoroughly dissolved and the mixture is clear. Remove the jar from the heat, add water, close the jar tightly, and shake hard. Keep shaking as the mixture cools and the water is absorbed into the oils. Just before the mixture solidifies, add Orange, rum and Anise extracts. Shake or stir again.
