Creating your own homemade lotion with glycerin and beeswax can be a wonderful way to nourish and moisturize your skin. Both glycerin and beeswax have excellent properties for skincare, and when combined, they can create a rich and hydrating lotion. Here's a simple recipe to get you started:

- 1/4 cup beeswax pellets
- 1/2 cup carrier oil (such as almond oil, jojoba oil, or coconut oil)
- 1/4 cup glycerin
- Optional: a few drops of essential oil for fragrance (such as lavender or rose)

1. In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, melt the beeswax pellets.
2. Once the beeswax has melted, add the carrier oil to the double boiler or bowl and stir well to combine.
3. Remove the mixture from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
4. Gradually add the glycerin to the mixture, stirring continuously.
5. If desired, add a few drops of your chosen essential oil for fragrance. Mix well.
6. Pour the mixture into a clean, sterilized jar or container.
7. Allow the lotion to cool completely and solidify before use. This may take a couple of hours.

To use your homemade glycerin and beeswax lotion, simply apply a small amount to your skin and massage it in gently. This lotion is particularly beneficial for dry or sensitive skin due to the moisturizing properties of glycerin and the protective barrier provided by beeswax.

Remember to store your homemade lotion in a cool, dry place and use it within a few months to ensure freshness and efficacy. Enjoy your personalized skincare creation!
