Body & Soul: Fresh Spearmint Lip Gloss

| June/July 2008

Fresh spearmint or peppermint work well, but you could use pineapple, cinnamon or chocolate mint for a different flavor. MAKES 1/2 OUNCE

• 1 teaspoon fresh spearmint leaves
• 2 teaspoons light oil, such as almond or walnut
• 1 teaspoon grated beeswax

1. Place leaves in a glass container. With the back of a spoon, gently crush to release natural oils.

2. Pour oil over leaves and allow mixture to sit several days. (For a stronger scent or taste, replace leaves each day with fresh ones.)

3. Remove mint leaves from oil. Mix mint oil and beeswax; heat gently until wax melts.

4. Pour mixture into a clean tube or container; cool completely.
