I have told you before, but just in case you didn't know my husband is a beekeeper and we have over 30 hives! We sell raw local honey and this awesome lip balm along with a few other natural body products that I hope to share with you soon.
beeswax candles and soap made with beeswax and now I am going to let you in how to make some amazing lip balm. It really is "the bomb"!
Here is what you will need:
recipe adapted from soulemama
makes about 25 tubes
*10Tbs.(5oz) Extra virgin organic coconut oil- where to buy
*4 Tbs. (2oz)Beeswax- where to buy I use our own beeswax.
*2Tbs (1oz) honey- where to buy I of course use our own raw honey. If you are local check us out! harrishoney.com
*30 drops peppermint oil-where to buy- I buy from our local bulk herb store
Lip Balm tubes- where to buy
Pyrex measuring cup- for pouring
Lip Balm filling tray - where to buy
How to make:
Fill a pot with water and find a heat proof bowl that fits on top to make a double boiler. Bring water to a simmer and melt coconut oil, and beeswax. Once melted add honey. Make sure to mix as well as possible because the honey has a tendency to stay at the bottom when pouring and end up at the bottom when you pour. Remove from heat and add peppermint oil. Pour ingredients into pyrex cup and pour into tubes. I use a lip balm filling tray because I make so many and it helps to prevent wasting any of the lip balm. Have everything ready when getting ready to pour because it will harden quickly. Let cool and enjoy!
I usually double the recipe and make enough to sell and give as Christmas presents. If you are looking for a quick gift to make that you and friends and family are sure to love, try these out!! They will revolutionize your lips!;)
