2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Grated Beeswax or Beeswax Pellets
1/2 Teaspoon Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter
1/2 Teaspoon Honey
Any Flavored Oil To Taste
1 Vitamin E Capsule as a preservative.
Recipe 2

3 oz. Almond Oil
2 Teaspoons Honey
1/2 oz. Beeswax or Beeswax Pellets
1 Vitamin E Capsule (as a preservative)
1-4 Drops Essential Oil (peppermint or tea tree or sweet orange, etc.)

Directions: melt all carrier oils, honey, beeswax and butters over low heat. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then add the flavored oils, essential oils, vitamin E, etc. Stir until all ingredients are blended well and pour into containers. You may have to "play around" with these by adding a tiny bit more or less of the beeswax pellets. As with any of these recipes, if it comes out too soft, add a few more beeswax pellets; if it's too hard, add a little more almond oil (or other oil). They're really hard to mess up, so enjoy yourself and have fun.

Note: You can get a bar of beeswax from the health food store and grate it up to make the lip balm. I often just put it in a glass container in the microwave and keep an eye on it stirring it often till all the beeswax is melted in to the mixture. while it is cooling stir it some more until it is still liquid but thickens slightly and pour in to lip balm pots.

You may also add pigment to it or mica for a nice color or shimmer. The key here is to use 1/2 soft oil (i.e. olive oil) and the other half hard oil (i.e. palm oil, coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter, or if you are really cheap crisco or something). I use peppermint oil, orange oil, any kind of essential oil and add to taste. You can use tea tree oil for a great antiseptic balm.
