Bees wax Lip Balm

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

LIP GLOSS
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.

      It depends a little where you are. You can get it on line from Neales yard or from bee keeper suppliers.

      I don’t use it at all but it’s good to have ideas for using the wax we have.

    Hi Just want to check out beeswax – are you using block beeswax to grate or beeswax pellets (they differ so the quantity will differ when making balms/salves etc). They look greet – thanks

      You’d need to refer to the original blog as it’s a reblog but we use wax from our hives which is neither pellet nor block but a big mashed pile.
