Peppermint Cocoa Lip BalmBarbara Shaurette
- 1 Tablespoon Cocoa Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Sweet Almond Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoon & 1 teaspoon Beeswax
- 5-10 drops Peppermint essential oil
Coarsely chop or grate beeswax (vegans may use Carnauba or Candelilla Wax as an alternative). Place wax, butter, and oil in a double boiler, and melt gently over low-medium heat. Once that the beeswax/oil mixture has melted, remove from burner, and add essential oils. Immediately pour the mixture into lip balm containers. Allow to cool completely before placing the caps onto your lip balm containers.
