Are you looking for an original gift? With only 3 ingredients you will create the base lip balm recipe: beeswax, almond oil, and essential oils.
You can add any color you want or no color at all. Peppermint oil is a different flavor, but feel free to add any scent you prefer such as orange essential oils or lavender too.
You can experiment a bit and come up with your own combination by adding a few different essential oil blends too.
Let’s get started!!!

GIFT IDEA: SCENTED LIP BALM
1 tablespoon natural beeswax pastilles – 2 tablespoon organic sweet almond oil – 2-3 drop therapeutic grade organic peppermint (or other) essential oil – small glass jars – wooden spoon for stirring – food coloring
Place your beeswax and sweet almond oil in a glass cup and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Beeswax can be a bit hard to find. You can always grab some on Amazon if you have trouble finding some locally.
Stir in your peppermint essential oil (or other essence you like), and a small piece of your favorite lipstick until melted (or food coloring).
Carefully pour the hot mixture into small beauty containers (I used small mason jars) and let set for about 30 minutes.
Your lip balm is ready!
