DIY: Lip Balm

1 Posted by - July 15, 2016 - Beauty

BeeswaxContainersIngredients:

  • 3 teaspoons grated unbleached beeswax
  • 5 teaspoons carrier oil (sunflower, castor, or jojoba)
  • 6 or 7 drops essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey, for flavor

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Pour mixture into containers; let sit 20 minutes before covering or moving. For glossier lip balm, use 2 teaspoons wax and 8 teaspoons carrier oil.
