Step 3 - Winterize
Step 4 - Winterize
Place the bowl and jar of alcohol into the freezer for 1 hour to crystallize the waxes.
Set a cone coffee filter or folded paper napkin in a funnel, in a small capture jar, in the freezer. Dribble a few drops of 95% ethanol in the filter to pre-wet it.
After an hour, Pour the bowl of waxy oils through the paper filter and let it drain.
Once the alcohol drains leaving waxes behind, use the additional chilled alcohol to clean out the bowl, then pour over the waxes and stir it up. Put this back in the freezer and let it drain. This additional bit of alcohol bleaches out any free oil. The wax will become lighter in color as the alcohol drains away.
