Day 9 of the 12 Days of Christmas: Peppermint Lip Balm

Well Hello and Welcome all to 
Day 9 of the 

Today, it's my turn to show you a neat-o
homemade gift idea...

Peppermint Lip Balm

As you may remember last year I showed you how to make lip balm, with this easy to follow recipe.

But this year I've made 
Peppermint Lip Balm.

It's super easy, and a great stocking stuffer, small gift idea, or just make it for yourself!

So let's begin...

3 tablespoons of 
Cosmetic Grade Honey Bees Wax

8 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil

1 1/2 tsp of Pure Honey

2 1/2 full pipettes of
Peppermint Extract

First boil water (1/2 full) in a large pot

Once boiling place a large metal bowl on top and place all of your ingredients except the peppermint.

I doubled the recipe to make fill the full 50 tubes.

Stir with a metal spoon until fully melted.

After its fully melted keep stirring, and stirring and stirring.
You will be stirring for a good 5-10 minutes until the honey seems to fully mix with the bees wax and coconut oil.

Then add 2 1/2 full pipettes of Peppermint Extract.

I kid you not it will smell almost too strong, but if you don't add that much you will not taste it in the balm.

In my first batch I only added 1 full pipette and it didn't taste anything like it at all. But after adding the extra 1 1/2 it was perfect.

After adding the extract, stir well and then you're ready to start adding it to your lip balm tubes.

I got these tubes through Amazon, and they were super inexpensive, and work very well! 
And its free shipping!

and I got the pipettes on Amazon too!

However if you want to save a little bit of money you can also use a glass measuring up with a spout. However this method is a little messier and trickier.

After they dry they tend to have a small hole or indention where the middle twister stick is, but if you add a drop more balm to the very top it will disappear and look more like when you buy it from the store. 
I wish I had taken a picture of what I'm talking about, but you'll see. Fill it up to that last line and then let it dry for about 5 minutes and then go back and add more. Your balm should still be warm on the stove at this point in order to add more drops to your balm.

Thank you so much for tuning in today!
Until Tomorrow...
