  • An ounce of coconut oil
  • An ounce of shea butter
  • An ounce of beeswax
  • 20 drops of orange, lavender, lemon balm, or chamomile essential oil.
  • A teaspoon of honey.

To make the lip balm, grab a medium pot and fill half of it with water and put it over medium heat, then put a smaller pot inside the previous one to make a double boiler. Add the beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter to the new small pot. When the ingredients meltdown, remove from the heat and whisk in the essential oil and honey. Grab a funnel and use it to transfer the liquid to tins. Once done, let it sit for an hour and you’re basically done.

Once done, fill a saucepan with a couple of inches of water and put the jar in the pan. Now take it and put it over low or medium-low heat for a few hours (make sure not to burn the herbs).
