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