1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon of Cacao Butter or Raw Shea Butter
1 Tablespoon of Beeswax Pastilles
1/4 Teaspoon of Castor Oil for shine
1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Essential Oils: 4 drops of Cinnamon Bark, 4 drops of Ginger, and 4 drops of Clove.
Small Containers or reused lip balm tubes
Add the coconut oil to a small pan and simmer till melted.
Add the beeswax pellets and cacao/or shea butter and simmer for about 5-10 minutes till melted.
(You can leave the butter out in the winter but, it helps hold the balm together during the hot summer months.) Add the castor oil. Stir and remove from stove.
Let sit till the mixture is warm to the touch, but not thick. It’s easier to pour into containers when it is still liquid. Add in the vanilla and essential oils. Stir.
Pour into your containers. Enjoy!
