Greener Future Friday: Homemade Lip Balm

I received a homemade lip balm kit for Christmas and just made it this week.  It was a lot of fun and I liked the idea of making my own skin care products!  The kit I received is from “The Crafty Beavers”.  The kit came with beeswax, peppermint essential oil and 2 containers.  I mixed the contained ingredients lip-balmwith olive oil and heated it in a double boiler.  It was super simple and fast to make.  My only complaint is that there was not room for all of the lip balm in the containers that came with the kit.  A larger or extra jar would have been nice.  Other than that it worked great.  I have shared the lip balm with my husband and Jack and they both think it’s great. 

I think the kit was great but not necessary.  Here are a few websites I found with simple recipes for homemade lip balm! 

I like that both of them include a vitamin E capsule broken and added to the mixture!
