#2: Find a Jar

I like to keep any empty cosmetic jars, clean and store them for projects just like this. You can use any container that is airtight.

#3: Scoop the Coconut Oil

I usually only make enough of this chest rub to use immediately or within a day – so I start with one heaping tablespoon full, add it to a small bowl.
