This is one of my favorite products that I make at home. It is something I make every year. I love it that much!

I have also given the lip balm as gifts before. I purchased these little tins from Rose Mountain Herbs, which are the perfect size.

Perfect size for lip balm.

The recipe is quite easy and mixes up in no time at all.

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.

Ingredients for Lip Balm

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.homemade remedies

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