Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 oz beeswax
2 1/2 oz shea butter or cocoa butter (or any combination of the two)

1-2 tsp. of essential oil - not essence oil (like using lemongrass, grapefruit, and tangerine)
optional 1 vitamin E capsule (a natural preservative)


Melt the beeswax in a pot on the stove at a low heat setting.

Once the wax is at a liquid state, add butters, let melt.

Add grapeseed, sweet almond, and/or coconut oil and stir.

Remove from heat and add the essential oil, stir.

Pour into small containers (little lip balm pots, or even a small jar).

Let cool and harden.
