DIY Homemade Lipbalm

Homemade Honey Lip balm

2tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. sweet almond oil
3 tbsp. raw honey
2 tbsp. beeswax

In small saucepan over lowest heat, on or in double boiler, melt beeswax and oil. add honey. stir constantly until incorporated. This actually takes about 5 minutes for it to reach temp where everything comes together.
Pour with a spoon into lip balm containers. Cool completely (about 4-5 hours) before capping.

Store in cool area; it  is a softer balm.  Use as you would normally for dry chapped lips, works wonderful to moisturize and protect and tastes great! If exposed to heat (I live in area that gets 100+F in summer)-just place it in the fridge for a bit- solids right back up.

Be Very careful to not spill when pouring- will burn you! I just used old spoon and carefully went one by one. I refilled 4 old recycled and cleaned out lip balm tubes, and 4 small metal round lip balm containers with this recipe.
