Lip Balm Recipe

Lip Balm Recipe
(Makes about 18 tubes)

In a (makeshift) double-boiler.
over med-low heat, melt together

4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oils of your choice
(I used 1 Tablespoon Sweet Almond Oil, 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil and 2 Tablespoons of some Comfrey and Plantain Oils I had made this summer)
1 Tablespoon grated Cocoa Butter
3 Tablespoons of grated Beeswax (or Beeswax Pellets)
1 and ½ teaspoons pure Aloe Vera Gel

Remove the inner part of the boiler containing the melted oils from the heat (keep the water ON the heat still, as you may have to re-melt it depending on how quick you are at pouring the melted ingredients into the tubes!)

Stir in the contents of
1 Vitamin E capsule and
20 to 30 drops of Essential Oils of your choice
(today, I used about
15 drops of Orange Essential Oil and about
18 drops each of Frankincense and Helichrysum

Now, carefully fill your lip balm tubes or tins, let set til cool, and it’s ready to use. As with any lip balm, do not store in a warm or sunny place. Homemade Lip Balm tends to be softer and less waxy than store bought, so keep that in mind when you apply to your lips!
