Honey Lip Balm

Ingredients:


  • 3 tablespoons grated unbleached beeswax
  • 5 teaspoons carrier oil (sunflower, castor or jojoba)
  • 6 or 7 drops essential oil (such as lime, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit or peppermint)
  • 1 teaspoon honey, for flavor


Instructions:


  • Melt the beeswax and carrier oil together in the top of a double boiler, stirring to combine. 
  • Remove from heat; add honey and essential oil.
  • Mix thoroughly so the honey does not clump. 
  • To add a little color, stir in a tiny dab of lipstick with a coffee stirrer.
  • Pour the mixture into containers; let sit 20 minutes before covering or moving. 
  • For glossier lip balm, use 2 teaspoons wax and 8 teaspoons carrier oil.
