28 Dec Make your own lip balm
It’s fun and easy to make lip balm
You will need
3% hydrogen peroxide or 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol, chop stick or spatula, 1oz bees wax, 1 cup olive oil, 1/8-1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavour (more if you want it stronger), lib balm container
Clean your double boiler, chop stick/spatula and containers with hydrogen peroxide or alcohol. This will kill any bacterial, yeast or mold. Safety first : )
In a double boiler, melt the bees wax. Using a chop stick stir in the olive oil and continue to heat until the oil and wax are completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in the peppermint flavour.
Pour into clean containers, let sit until hard, label and enjoy.
- you can replace the olive with any combination of oil. Do not use oils that need refrigeration as the lip balm will become rancid
- you can replace the peppermint with any natural flavor or combinations of flavors
