I love lip balm! Especially when I make it! I get to control what goes into it and the quality of the ingredients! Here is the perfect recipe for honey lip balm that will nourish your lips and have some of the benefits of pure local honey!
Honey Lip Balm
approx 15 lip balm tubes
1 oz bees wax (about 2 tbsp)
1 oz shea butter ( about 2 tbsp)
1/2 oz coconut oil (about 1 tbsp)
1/2 oz almond oil (about 1 tbsp)
1/4 oz local honey (about 1/2 tbsp)
few drops of vitamin e (optional)
essential oils (optional) I used sweet orange
Directions: In a double boiler or very small sauce crockpot melt bees wax slowly. Add shea butter and wait a few minutes until it melts. Add coconut oil and almond oil, stir until melted and combined. Add honey and whisk well (it can be difficult to mix the honey throughout the oil wax mixture.) I actually stirred it between eat pour too. Add essential oil if preferred. Place in tins or empty lip balm tubes and let cool on the counter. I know it might be hard but wait until completely cooled! Enjoy!
This recipe is pretty easy! With holidays right around the corner these will make awesome gifts! Happy crafting!
