Almond oil, beeswax, and honey soften and protect lips. Sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) and peppermint essential oils add a refreshing flavor.

· 4 tablespoons almond oil
· 1 tablespoon grated beeswax
· 1 teaspoon honey
· 5 drops sweet orange essential oil
· 5 drops peppermint essential oil

Combine the almond oil and the beeswax. Warm the mixture gently over very low heat until the beeswax melts. Remove from the heat, add the honey, and stir thoroughly. Add the essential oils and stir again. Pour into small wide-mouth glass jars and allow to cool, stirring occasionally, if necessary, to keep the mixture from separating.
