After the success of the Coconut Hand cream I made the other day I have been looking forward to making the lip balm.
Here it is!
To make you need:
Melt the ingredients in a double boiler (I use a bowl over a pan of boiling water). The beeswax will take a little while the melt completely. Take off the heat and and add the essential oil. Give it a good mix together.
While still warm put the mix into your chosen container. I used lip balm tube sang found the easiest way to fill them was using a medicine syringe.
Once filled leave them a few minutes and then top up as the mixture gets a well in the centre as it firms up. Once happy leave them to cool before using or putting the lid on.
You can play around with the consistency of this by adjusting the amount of beeswax. More wax makes a firmer lip balm and less wax makes a softer one. You can also change the essential oil to any other you like. I was just feeling a bit festive!
