Natural Beeswax Lip Balm Recipe

Makes 1 ½ ounces

Bees provide a valuable lip balm ingredient—beeswax! This rich balm will soften and protect your lips. You can use it alone or as a base for colored lipstick.

• 2 tablespoons grated beeswax
• 1 teaspoon sunflower oil
• 1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil
• 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil

On a stove or in a microwave, gently heat beeswax and oils until melted; be careful to not overheat. Stir well to combine. Pour into a small, clean container, then cool completely.
