Natural Home-Made Lip Balm

By: Elna Botes van Schalkwyk


  • 2 teaspoons beeswax
  • 8 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 6 drops essential oil of our choice
  • several old chapstick tubes, small tins, pill boxes, or other small containers with lids

Grate the beeswax with a cheese grater, mix it in with the olive oil, and heat it on the stove until the beeswax melts. Once the wax is all melted, remove from heat. Let it cool for a while, then stir in the honey and the orange oil. Pour into your containers. The mixture will turn solid after a while.
