Brainstorm ideas for the season of WINTER:
This is expensive if you're making it for the first time, but after that you can churn out batches of lip balm with very little expense. And I really like the cute little 1/4 oz. lip balm tins ! We simply write our names on the bottom with a Sharpie but you could always decoupage art onto them to personalize.
The recipe calls for
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon beeswax pastilles
- 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil
- 1 tablespoon cocoa butter
- 12 drops peppermint essential oil
- 3 drops vitamin E oil
BEE SAFE and melt in a double boiler! Combine and melt the first four recipe ingredients over simmering water, then remove from the heat and stir in the last two ingredients. Immediately pour the mixture into lip balm containers. Allow to cool completely before placing the lids on the containers.
