With winter around the corner here’s a sure fire recipe for personal lip balms that will chase away cracked, chapped lips all season long.
1 TBSP (15 ml) Beeswax Pastilles or ground beeswax
1 TBSP (15 ml) Coconut Oil
½ TBSP (7.5 ml) Castor Oil
2½ TBSP (22.5 ml) Fractionated Coconut Oil (or your favourite carrier oil)
5 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (our your favourite essential)
5 to 8 Drops of 1000 IU Natural Source Vitamin E
7 or 8 – 4.5 ml Lip Balm Tubes (4 or 5 – 7 ml Tins)
Place carrier oils, solid butter and beeswax into a heat resistant canning jar or Pyrex dish
Set jar down into a saucepan fill with 2 inches of water to create a makeshift double bowler. Heat over medium low heat stirring continuously until ingredient melts together.
