Softening lip balm

Ths wonderful softening lip balm will protect as well as soften the sensitve skin on your lips. I have chosen to add Spearmint essential oil for it delicious flavor and also for it's antiseptic and healing properties. If you wish to experiment with other essential oils I suggest trying Lime, Mandarin, Orange, or Peppermint.


  • 2 teaspoons beeswax (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon shea butter
  • 4 tablespoons apricot oil
  • 1 teaspoon carrot infused oil
  • 6 drops Spearmint


  • Add the beeswax, shea butter and apricot oil to a glass pyrex jug. Sit this jug in a fry pan of simmering water and melt ingredients together.
  • Once they have all melted together add the carrot infused oil and mix well.
  • Once the mixture starts to cool, stir in the Spearmint oil.
  • Pour into small sterilized glass jars.
  • Cover tightly and label the product, including the date.
