Yummy honey lip balm (but don't eat it! :P hehe)
Natural honey lip balm.
The jojoba oil can be replaced with any liquid oil such as avocado, calendula, apricot or even olive oil if that's all you can get - they're all nourishing.
The coconut oil can be replaced with mango or shea butter.
The honey is optional, but it wouldn't be honey lip balm without it! Also, it adds antibacterial properties, particularly if you use manuka honey, and it tastes yummy!

Makes enough to fill a 30ml pot.

6g Natural Yellow Beeswax
8g Coconut Oil
4g Cocoa Butter
1/2 tsp Organic Honey
6 drops Vitamin E Oil
13g Jojoba Oil
