Making Beeswax Lip Balm

How to make your own beeswax lip balm.


Making lip balm is incredibly easy, and one of the most popular gifts I have ever given.  It works wonderfully, lasts a long time, and smells amazing.


Luckey Bee Honey Beeswax Lip Balm

For this recipe you will need:

2 ounces almond oil

2 ounces shea butter or cocoa butter

1 ounce beeswax

3 tsp honey

essential oils of your choice (optional)

Lip balm tins ( I buy mine from Amazon)


Put the first 3 ingredients in a double boiler.  I personally have used a glass bowl over boiling water in a saucepan with great success.  Heat all the ingredients until completely melted.  Remove from the heat and stir in honey and oils.  
When all of the ingredients have been thoroughly stirred pour into lip balm tins and allow to cool.

When it has solidified enjoy!!
