Peppermint lip balm – DIY natural style!

Hydrate your lips with simple, natural ingredients. This lip balm will harden into a similar consistency as your normal chapstick. You can make it softer by adding more oil, or harder by adding more wax. 

1/4 cup almond oil
1 1/2 tsp. pure beeswax
1 tsp. vegetable glycerin
1-2 drops peppermint essential oil 


  1. Combine the oil and beeswax on low heat in a double boiler until beeswax is completely melted. 
  2. Remove from heat and stir in glycerin. Blend with a whisk until creamy. 
  3. Add the peppermint oil and stir well to combine. 
  4. Pour quickly into containers.
