Three ingredients: sweet almond oil, beeswax, and honey.
That’s all that I put in my lip balm. I adapted a recipe from local mom and herbalist Kristie because I had an abundance of beeswax. I say adapted, because I didn’t read the instructions carefully when I made the recipe the first time. Now, I can’t imagine my lip balm any other way. It’s so…perfect. All edible, all honeybee products, all from America, and all crafted in my kitchen. It’s not too hard, not too soft, and smells like honey.
It is a frugal option for me once I purchase the lip balm tubes. It can be frugal for you, too, because I am offering lip balm kits — 15 tubes and lids and 5 T. (approx. 2.5 oz.) grated wax for $20. This could be your kids’ Christmas gift to someone! You can choose your recipe online or ask for mine. Kristie generously shared her recipe with me, so I will share with you. You can also buy finished lip balm from me for $2 tube. I’ll be delivering at my coupon meetup on Nov. 12. (RSVP with a comment here or by clicking on the photo to the right).
