The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
This looks like a really handy recipe. And we have plenty of bees wax.
This afternoon I made some peppermint lip balm ready for the colder weather. The recipe I used is as follows
2 teaspoons beeswax
2 tablespoons, sweet almond oil or coconut oil
5 drops essential oil (such as orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, coconut or mint)
Melt the oil and beeswax together stir in essential oil and then transfer to a small containers.
If a thicker gloss is desired, increase the amount of beeswax. (Experiment with other additions such as baking chocolate, crushed peppermint candy, cocoa butter, vanilla bean, oil of cinnamon, oil of camphor or eucalyptus for soothing chapped lips, wheat germ oil, etc.
