Homemade Lip Balm

Lip balm is easy to make if you are inspired to do so. Here’s the simple recipe we used.

1 cup olive or almond oil
1/2 cup beeswax
2 tablespoons honey

Combine ingredients on medium-low heat on the stove top. Pour hot mixture into molds, jars or chapstick tubes.

Cleaning tip: Beeswax is impossible to clean off kitchen tools/pots when it’s hardened. Wipe as much off as you can with a paper towel when while the pot/tool is still warm and then use boiling water to clean the rest—and don’t dump the waxy water down your sink!
