- 2 tsp. coconut oil
- 2 tsp. shea butter
- 2 tsp.beeswax granules
- 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. raw honey
- 2 drops lemon essential oil
Combine shea butter, beeswax granules, and coconut oil in a small pan over medium-low heat. Stir mixture frequently with a whisk until fully melted.
Remove it from heat and stir in lemon juice, honey, and essential oil.
Spoon mixture into small makeup pots-glass is best.
Let it sit for several hours until firm, you can speed this up by placing them in the refrigerator.
Keep them in a cool dry place, if left somewhere too warm (like a hot car) your lip balm will liquefy.
