  • Microwavable container
  • Electric mixer or wire whisk



  • In a small microwavable container, combine the olive oil and beeswax. Microwave in 20-second intervals until the beeswax is completely melted. Stir to combine. Set aside the beeswax and olive oil mixture so it can cool for about 5 minutes, but don't let it harden. 
  • In a separate bowl, combine the honey, pollen, bee propolis, and royal jelly. Use the back of a spoon to gently crush the bee pollen granules. Stir together as best you can, but don't worry if the ingredients don't completely mix together just yet.
  • Add the honey mixture to the olive oil mixture, and using an electric mixer or wire whisk, whisk everything together until it emulsifies into an opaque, creamy substance. Spoon into a small jar and store in the refrigerator to prevent separation.


To use, soften a little Egyptian Magic between your fingers and apply it to clean, dry skin or hair. If using as a hair mask, let it sink in for about an hour before washing with shampoo.
The final color of your Egyptian Magic is going to depend on the color of your bee products. The second time I made this, my bee pollen was bright orange as opposed to yellow, making my Egyptian Magic also a bright orange. The color doesn't change the effectiveness!
