1 oz. of organic beeswax pellets
3 TBS organic shea butter
2 TBS organic virgin coconut oil
1 TBS local honey
You can see that I used a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup in a small boiler containing water. Over medium heat, melt the wax, shea butter, and coconut oil. The wax will take the longest to melt. When the first three ingredients have become a liquid, stir in the honey until it is dissolved. Remove from heat and add the desired amount of essential oils. I used about 15 drops of lemon and 10 drops of peppermint.
Pour the mixture into prepared containers. I bought the reddish containers at Wal*mart for 2/$1.00. I saw similar containers for the same price at our local Dollar General. I also re-filled empty lip balm containers (a flat tin and the 2 tubes) that I had cleaned.
You will notice that one of the tubes contains tinted balm. I added just a little gel food coloring to achieve that color by dipping a tooth pick into the get and stirring it in the mixture. Allow the mixture to cool. Place lids on containers, and enjoy!
