Handmade Lip Balm Recipe

Are you looking for a vegan-friendly lip balm recipe?  I found this recipe from Wholesale Supplies Plus called Handmade Lip Balm. This all-natural lip balm combines luxury ingredients to create an amazing lip balm.  Instead of using the traditional beeswax to make the lip balm hard, this recipe uses vegan waxes:  carnuaba and candelilla to provide the hardness and they are balanced with popular oils and exotic butters. I see that they are using the cardboard version of lip tubes.  I have never tried them before.  I have been intrigued when I saw them sold at my local Michaels.
