I have made this lip balm before and we just love it. This year I decided to make some not only for us, but also would make some up to give as Christmas presents. I purchased these little tins from Rose Mountain Herbs, which are the perfect size.

Ingredients for Lip Balm

I used some of our local honey and our own beeswax, which we still have on hand from when we raised our own bees. It gave the lip balm a beautiful color.

The vitamin E is squeezed out of the Vitamin E capsules; you get about 3 drops out of one capsule.

Here is the recipe:

6 Tbsp almond oil
2 tsp honey
4 tsp beeswax, grated
5 drops vitamin E oil
5 drops peppermint essential oil
8 – ½ oz lidded pots

In a double boiler, melt almond oil, honey and beeswax together. I used a tin can placed in water.

Remove from heat, allowing mixture to cool slightly. Add vitamin E and peppermint oils and stir until well blended. Spoon into tins and allow to cool before covering.

Be warned, you will get addicted to this lip balm. I know I am! Making it is now on my annual “to do” list!
