The amount of beeswax you will need will depend on the temperature of your house. In the summer, I used 2 Tbsp of beeswax pellets and it gave a really nice consistency. It firmed up the liquid coconut oil enough to make an easy-to-use ointment. However in the winter, this much beeswax made it rock solid. Reducing to 1 Tbsp beeswax gave a much better consistency.
