Darlene's Healing Lip Balm Recipe

Submitted By:

Darlene of PennaFurnace, PA


1 tsp. beeswax pellets
1 tsp. cocoa butter (previously ground in food processor for easy measuring)
1/2 tsp. jojoba oil
1/2 tsp. Nature's Gate vitamin E oil (This is what I had on hand to use. It is vit. E in a base of grapeseed and calendula oils. I'm sure you can substitute with a similar oil that has healing properties.)
5 drops (or less) peppermint essential oil
2 drops tea tree essential oil


Melt everything except essential oils in a double boiler. Remove from heat. Let cool slightly before adding essential oils. Pour into lip balm tin, cap tightly and let cool.
(I like this in a small lip balm tin that I keep in my front pants pocket. Body heat softens the lip balm slightly, but is still good when at room temperature. I'm not sure, but it may be too soft in a lip balm tube that's kept in the front pants pocket. In this case, a little more beeswax may help.)

Customer Testimonial

"I'm fourteen, and want to start making natural health and beauty products at home for myself. I predict that when I'm older I will go into a business in this area because of your site. The information offered on your site has been amazing to a beginner like me. The range of products is amazing. Yours is the first place I have actually found Rhassoul clay. I've been searching for ages as the stuff works wonders on my face. There's so many other examples of the products like this , but too many to list. It's mind-boggling to think of how long I've been searching, and here you've got it all. Finally, I want to comment on your customer service. It's excellent. You give information and one thing that stood out to me is if there is a negative comment, you try to find out why and comment on that. I love how it's a personalized message that shows you've shown effort to make your customers happier. Overall, your site has wowed me so much I felt the need to send you this email, commenting on it. I haven't yet placed the order due to financial changes I've been making lately, but I can assure you, I will be soon :)"
