Easy Homemade Lip Balm

Easy Homemade Lip Balm

-2 tsp. beeswax (chop or grate it, then measure)
-2 1/4 tsp. jojoba oil (you can also use olive oil or sunflower oil)
-about 6 drops of peppermint essential oil (or any flavor you like - I also like lemon and grapefruit)

Melt wax and jojoba oil together in a microwave, in 10 second incriments. Stir to combine. When thoroughly blended together, add essential oil. Pour into your containers, filling only half way - I like mini tins, but you can also buy empty lip balm tubes. Keep reserved mixture melted; after a few minutes, top off the containers with the rest of the mixture. Let cool for about 20 minutes and enjoy!

To make your lip balm glossier, just add a tab more oil, up to a total of 3 teaspons. You can experiment to get your lip balm the way you want it.
