Cocoa Butter Minty Lip Balm

1-1/2 parts cocoa butter
1-1/2 parts grated beeswax
3 parts edible vegetable oil of your choice (almond, apricot kernel,
avocado, extra virgin olive, hemp seed, jojoba, kukui nut, macadamia nut,
castor all work well... but keep in mind if you plan on selling lip balm or

giving as a gift, that some people are allergic to nut oils)
Spearmint and/or peppermint flavoring oil
Melt the cocoa butter and beeswax slowly and carefully in a microwave, or over a double boiler on the stove until melted. Add oil and stir well. Add spearmint or peppermint flavoring oils, or both, a few drops at a time, to taste. Gently reheat if needed. Cool slightly before pouring into containers. To test consistency, place a drop on a spoon and set in the refrigerator to cool for a few minutes. Test on your lips. For a softer lip balm, add more oil. For a harder lip balm, add more beeswax.
