Some women in Middle Eastern countries still make Arabic wax as an all-natural hair remover. Since ancient Egyptian times, women used sugar waxing as part of their beauty regimen. Today, there are many products used for hair removal. However, some of these products can contain harsh chemicals. For people who may prefer to use natural ingredients, an Arabic wax may be an option. With some simple ingredients, you can make a sugar wax at home.
Combine 2 cups of sugar, and 4 tbsp. each of lemon juice and water in a saucepan. Simmer the ingredients in the saucepan over low heat.
Allow the mixture to thicken and turn golden brown. Stir the mixture with a spoon consistently so that the sugar crystals dissolve. It may take between four and eight minutes for the mixture to thicken and acquire a syrup-like consistency. Do not allow the mixture to boil over or burn.
Wait until the mixture turns a darker brown. Lower the heat and check the mixture’s temperature with a candy thermometer. The temperature should be approximately between 250 and 270 degrees F.
Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool for two to three minutes. Pour the mixture into a microwaveable container and allow it to cool. Test the mixture with the fingers for consistency and heat level before applying it to the skin. If the mixture is too cool, then you can reheat it in the microwave.
Prepare a quick sugaring wax in the microwave. Combine the sugar, 4 tbsp. of honey and lemon juice with a spoon in a microwaveable container.
Microwave the mixture at medium heat for approximately two minutes. Remove the sugaring mixture from the microwave and allow it to cool. Proceed to use the Arabic wax.
