Homemade Honey Lip Balm

homemade lip balm

Another honey project, I think it’s becoming ‘a thing’ 


.6 oz beeswax
1.8 oz almond or coconut oil
1/2 tbsp honey
3-4 drops of flavor safe essential oil

Weigh beeswax and oil.  Put in a glass container in a water bath.  Once melted add the honey and stir well.  Remove from heat and add essential oil.  Pour into containers, let rest 20 minutes then label. 
Step by step instructions follow.

Weigh beeswax.
I am using beeswax leftover from Berry Hill Bees honey harvest. 


Weigh oil
( I am using Coconut Oil)


In a saucepan of simmering water, melt the beeswax and oil in a glass cup with spout.  Stir until melted.
Once melted, add the honey and stir well to mix.

Add the essential oil of choice, I used Sweet Orange for this batch.

Pour the warm liquid into clean containers and let cool for 20 minutes.
