Vanilla Butter Lip Balm

This homemade lip balm is so good that you might want to eat it - my children tell me it tastes delicious.


1 tablespoon cocoa butter
1 tablespoon beeswax shavings or pearls
1 tablespoon almond oil
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


Melt beeswax and cocoa butter in a beaker placed in a small pot of simmering water

When beeswax and cocoa butter are melted, remove beaker from heat and stir in almond oil and vanilla

Pour liquid into stainless steel lip balm tins and allow to cool until solid (20 minutes)

Store in a cool dry place. Makes great gifts.
