I recently made some lip balm based on several different recipes I found on the Internet and combining that knowledge with flavours that I enjoy. It turns out that lip balm is ridiculously easy to make. You can make it in your microwave in under 5 minutes by simply estimating measurements.

 

Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of beeswax
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mint/peppermint extract

Heat up the oil in a pyrex measuring cup until it’s hot enough to melt beeswax. Then add in your beeswax and put it back in the microwave, stirring frequently until everything is melted. Finally, stir in your mint/peppermint extract and pour into a container of your choosing.
