Heat these ingredients over low heat until completely melted. Take extra care not to burn these ingredients. Allow a couple of minutes for the mixture to cool before adding a few drops of flavored oil (such as vanilla, strawberry or peppermint) and 1 capsule of Vitamin E. Mix everything well and pour into small containers. Once you are done, pack these into a beautiful decorative box.
