Natural Lip Balm is a great idea to add to the stocking stuffers during the holidays or a wonderful gift idea for that special friend in your life and is easy to make and great for the winter months.
3 oz Bees wax
7 ox Olive oil
2 oz Castor oil
2 tble spoon Aloe butter
1 teaspoon Peppermint Essential oil
Melt your bees wax in a double boiler on low heat, DO NOT STICK IT IN MICROWAVE to melt, it could cause fire. Once the beeswax is melted add the rest of your oils but leave the essential oils for later ( do not add yet). Be sure all is melted and blend together.
Take the the mixture off the stove and let it cool down, I usually trasfere the mixture to a glass measuring cup, you’ll notice once it cools down a ring around the top of the liquid, it’s time to add your peppermint oil. Mix well and pour into little containors.
Once they are poured DO NOT touch them for 24 hours otherwise they tend to collapse in the centre.
Once they are solid add your lids.
Now you can label and put a nice bow around it.
I hope you will try this recipe and send me feedback. If you don’t have all the ingredients you can use the bees wax or a vegan wax and use all olive oil along with any essential oil, fragrance oil or maybe add no oil, it”s totally up to you. YOU ARE THE MASTER OF YOUR OWN CREATION.
