Honey Lemon Lip Balm DIY

  • three tablespoons beeswax
  • five tablespoons castor oil
  • two tablespoons jojoba oil
  • one tablespoon honey
  • ten drops lemon essential oil
  • In a double boiler, melt the beeswax and mix it with the oils. Remove from heat and stir in the honey. Add the lemon essential oil. Keep stirring while pouring into lip balm tins or pots.

    This stuff is really nice. It’s solid, but still quite glossy and spreadable. Plus, the scent is divine, and the honey leaves a sweet taste on your lips!
