Coconut Lip Balm

Coconut Lip Balm This simple balm will keep lips smooth all summer. If you'd like a tinted lip balm, add a bit of alkanet root powder or beet root powder until the desired color is achieved. Ingredients

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon beeswax (or pastilles) 1 tablespoon organic cocoa butter 2 tablespoons organic sunflower oil 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil 20 drops organic essential oil of choice (optional) 5 drops vitamin E oil Directions

Chop or grate beeswax, or measure out beeswax pastilles. Place wax, butter and oils in the top of a double boiler or bain marie and gently heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in essential oils, if using. Add vitamin E and stir again to blend. Immediately pour the mixture into clean 1 ounce tins or empty lip balm tubes. Let cool for several hours or overnight before capping. Label your creations and store in a cool place.
