Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm
Homemade peppermint lip balm recipe
- 1 tablespoon shea butter
- 1 tablespoon almond oil
- 1 tablespoon beeswax
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil
Melt almond oil, beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil over low heat in a double boiler. I used a large pyrex measuring cup as the double boiler and with a small amount of water in the pot.
Add the shea butter until melted (adding the shea butter last will help prevent it from getting grainy once it has cooled).
Remove from heat; stir in peppermint essential oil.
Immediately pour into lip balm tubes. Allow to cool before adding caps. Cool for 24 hours or overnight. Add label with glue stick or adhesive tape runner.
