Homemade Lip Balm Recipe

melting
Melting down all of the ingredients in a ‘double boiler’ of sorts. A bowl over a pot of boiling water.

melted
It took awhile for the beeswax to melt down. The Beeswax Pellets would probably be easier to melt down.

I used a dropper (found here) to fill the tubes individually.

Arial view of little tubs (found here)….think Carmex….only this was a FAIL. Carmex is soft. This balm gets soft from the warmth of your lips. You can’t get to your lips with the little tub so I had to pop these out and melt them down again to put them in tubes.

Ingredients
1 oz Beeswax
2T. Coconut Oil
1T. Shea Butter
1T. Cocoa Butter
20 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Instructions
In a double boiler melt everything, except essential oils, together until well blended.
Remove from heat
Add essential oils
Stir
Pour into lip balm tubes
Place the tubes in the refrigerator after capping
Notes
I used 8-10 drops of peppermint and it was super mild…..If you want it a little zingy add more.
You could also use Wild Orange Essential Oil
