Facebook has made it easy to reconnect with old friends, one of those being my friend, Renee from grade school. She recently posted how she made her own homemade peppermint chapstick, “Pretty amazing if I do say so myself!” I was impressed and asked for the recipe to share!
Homemade Lip Balm Recipe
- 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp plus 1 teaspoon beeswax pellets
- 18 drops of peppermint essential oil
- 1 Vitamin E tablet
- 1/4 teas honey or agave nectar
Melt coconut oil and beeswax pellets over low heat (She used a double broiler). Once melted, peppermint essential oil. Poke a hole in a Vitamin E tablet and squeeze contents into mixture. Add teas honey or agave nectar. Mix well and fill tubes. Let cool. This will fill 14 tubes. Renee decorated her tubes (shown above) with washi tape.
