- 2 tsp. beeswax
- 7 tsp. castor oil or Jojoba or sweet almond oil
- 1 tsp. honey
- 5 drops of an essential oil such as lemon, peppermint, orange, lime, tangerine
Melt the oil and beeswax together in a little pan over low heat until the beeswax is melted. Take off the stove and then add in your honey and whisk it all together. When the mixture is nearly cool add in your essential oil, mix it up again and then pour into your lip balm container. Since this comes out to be more like a gloss you can always add more beeswax to it so that it is a little harder. Maybe another 1/2 tsp. would do it.
