Old-fashioned floor polish
250 ml turpentine
80 g beeswax
20 g Sunlight Soap, grated
250 ml tea, made from infusing a handful of lemon balm leaves in boiling water
20 drops essential oil
Place beeswax and turps in a double boiler. Heat gently and do not take your eye off the mixture, as turps is highly flammable.
When they are combined put to one side and melt the grated soap in the lemon balm tea. When both mixtures are cool, mix together until creamy then add the essential oil. Pour into a wide-mouthed jar.
