Mint Lip Balm

Making your own lip balm is easy and fun! If you are looking for something to do on girl’s night in, this is the perfect activity. Everyone can take home their own lip balm. This recipe makes 13 lip balms so more than likely, your friends can take home more than one. Unless, of course, you invite over 13 people!

You’ll need coconut oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, almond oil and peppermint essential oil. I also purchased tiny lip balm containers that I labelled with my Brother P Touch label maker.

Use a double boiler on your stove so you don’t burn the ingredients. Just add some water to saucepan and then place a heat proof bowl to sit inside. Your ingredients will melt in the bowl and will be a safe distance away from the direct heat. I use a glass Pyrex bowl for mine.
