LipBalmTubesNatGreetings! I wanted to share the lip balm recipe we used the other day because I am still so excited about this. The lip balm this makes is every bit as nice as any lip balm I have purchased.

1.5 oz beeswax
1 oz cocoa butter
1.5 oz shea butter
2 oz sweet almond oil
1-2 teaspoons flavor oil
1 teaspoon vitamin E liquid

Weigh everything.

In a small saucepan melt the beeswax on low. Add the cocoa butter and shea butter and stir until melted. Add the sweet almond oil and heat through. Add the Vitamin E oil and remove from heat. Pour into a glass measuring cup for pouring into lip balm containers. Add the flavor oil and pour into lip balm containers. If it starts to harden, microwave for a few seconds to re-melt and continue pouring.

Recipe makes 6 ozs

**A reader asked me to add my source for lip balm tubes. The Ponte Vedra Soap Shoppe is where I ordered my tubes. Scroll almost to the bottom of this page – I ordered the clear tubes.**
