Lip Balm

Like lotion bars, lip balm is super easy to make and needs very few ingredients.

  Here’s what you need to make a small batch of lip balm. It filled 5 lip gloss tubes that you can order here.

3 teaspoons beeswax

7 teaspoons olive oil

1 vitamin E capsule

Melt oil and beeswax in a double boiler until beeswax is completely melted. Let cool a bit and then squeeze the contents of one vitamin E capsule into the mixture and stir well.

At this point you can add one or more of the following:

1 candy melt (any flavor of color will work)

6-7 drops essential oil

Stir well.

Pour into containers and let set up.

Remember not to pour any leftover liquid balm into your sink! Clean up is a bit messy… :o)
