Beeswax Lip Balm
2 Tbs beeswax
1 Tbs coconut oil
Melt the ingredients over a double boiler. CAUTION – BEESWAX IS FLAMMABLE. Pour into a container while still hot since it will harden as it cools. Makes about 1/4 cup.
Beeswax will provide a soft flexible barrier to water and washes off easily with soap. Try to find clean, light colored beeswax and if you can get some from a beekeeper - lucky you! Most health food and natural food stores carry jars of coconut oil - which melts at body temperature and turns to a solid quickly at room temperature.
