DIY Hair Pomade

Ok, it's not food, but why buy products with a long list of ingredients I can't pronounce and probably are not good for my scalp anyway?

So I made up a test batch and it works great!  Is no one making organic, natural stuff like this to sell?

(all measures are by weight)
1/3 oz by weight beeswax, shaved (or 2 tsp melted)
3/4 oz by weight shea butter (or 1 1/2 Tbsp)
1/4 oz by weight jojoba oil (or 1/2 Tbsp)
several drops of essential oil (rose geranium, lavender, sage, or your favorites)

In a double boiler on medium heat, melt beeswax; add shea and allow to melt.  Remove from heat, add jojoba and stir to combine.  Pour into a small jar, add essential oil and shake to combine.  Allow to cool.
