Lavender Peppermint Lip Balm

I know this is not food but this natural lip balm sure does feed the soul. My daughter and I spent a hour this morning making this for friends for thanksgiving. Recipes from the Thanksgiving meal will follow:)

You will need the following. Please make sure all ingredients are organic and good quality.

3 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon almond oil

3 tablespoon beeswax

1 tablespoon raw honey

10 drops Lavender oil

10 drops Peppermint oil

Jars ( I bought these on Amazon)

Some dried Lavender flowers ( optional – I just used these to top the balm for interest)

In a double boiler using a glass jar melt the coconut and almond oils and beeswax. Whisk in honey and the essential oils. Pour in the jars to set and top with bits of organic lavender flowers if you have them.

You can label these, they make a great gift!
