Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

I have to admit that I am so so on vanilla, but if it is combined with another flavor than I am all for it.  In this Vanilla Mint Lip Balm recipe from Wholesale Supplies Plus I have have to say that vanilla and mint pairing is my absolute favorite.  This recipe is the perfect size for kids and adults for anytime of the year especially wearing gloves and mittens. It contains moisturizing ingredients of olive butter, shea butter and castor oil to help keep lips protected from the elements.
