~ All of our lavender is in full bloom now, so i have been inspired to make some yummy lip balm! This recipe is super easy and fast. I added a bit of vanilla bean oil and amber to make the perfect combination of scents. The honey is great for dryness and tastes amazing on the lips!
4 Tbsp organic Coconut, jojoba, or almond oil
1 Tbsp grated beeswax or beeswax pearls
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
3 drops lavender, amber essential oil (or other essential oil) and a vanilla bean opened and squeezed into mixture
~Warm the oils, beeswax and honey in a small, stainless steel pot or bowl. Be sure to warm it on low heat. ( a double boiler works best.) Stir until the beeswax is completely melted. Remove from heat and quickly whisk in the essential oil and vitamin E. quickly transfer the balm into your lip balm container (tube or tin) and allow to set for 3 hours or until hard.
These are great gifts too!
