Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm
I am one of those people that has to have a tube of lip balm with me at all times. I have it in my car. I have it in my purse. I can not go to sleep without applying it. I see a tube laying on the end table beside where I am typing right now. It’s one of my things.
So after making homemade soy candles, you can imagine my excitement of making homemade peppermint lip balm
You literally just melt the shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax in a glass measuring cup that is placed in a pot of boiling water. You can also place the measuring cup in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Then fill your little tubes with the melted ingredients!
If you like a thicker lip balm, just add an extra teaspoon of beeswax. It’s easy to test the consistency too if you want to before you fill the tubes. Just take a little bit of the melted mixture and put it on a plate to cool. Then test it on your lips to see if it’s perfect for you.
Print these fun Peppermint Lip Balm Labels using Avery 5167 address labels if you want to personalize them a little more. (my printer was almost out of black ink when I printed mine. Hence the faded words)
It is perfection! So smooth! My lips are so happy! This balm holds up like commercial lip balm, but even better! No strange, unwanted ingredients!
