Lip Balm - Coconut
2 tbs of beeswax
1 tbs of coconut oil
option 5 drops of coconut essence or flavoring.
Melt the beeswax and coconut oil down using a double boiler method stir in any extra scents or color.
While hot pour into a suitable container allow it to set and it's ready for application.
Old lip balm,lipsticks or even eyeshadow containers are great for lip balm pots.
If you wish to dye this balm you can use a cosmetic coloring available from home made body product supply stores. You can also use a small amount of store bought lipstick to tint the balm.
Alternatively you can also use colored beeswax or candle dye as it is being used in such a small quantity it will not stain or harm your skin.
