Homemade Embrocation

This is a little project that has been two years in the making. Little thought has been wasted on the beeswax and cajeput oil sitting in my desk drawer recently, but with nothing to do in the ghost town of Blacksburg over winter break, I gathered ingredients to cook what I hoped to be a mild batch of embrocation.

Somethings are better told through pictures...

I'm not yet sure how it is going to turn out, it has not yet cooled. I forgot the cayenne pepper, so I'm afraid it isn't going to have any heat. The red pepper and coffee beans probably didn't soak long enough in the alcohol and the cocoa butter wasn't as soluble as I would have hoped. We shall see.

Now, it is time to clean up the kitchen.
