New Organic Peppermint Lip Balm

To fend off the cold weather we've been having lately we formulated a new lip balm with all Certified Organic ingredients, the result being a super rich balm that penetrates dry, chapped lips. We'd love to share the recipe:

16% Organic Beeswax Pastilles - 40 grams
8% Organic Refined Shea Butter - 20 grams
6% Organic Cocoa Butter - 15 grams
40% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 100 grams
16% Organic Jojoba Oil - 40 grams
14% Organic Castor Oil - 35 grams
Organic Peppermint Essential Oil to taste

The instructions are simple: melt the ingredients in the microwave using a glass measuring cup or on the stove in a double boiler. Remove from heat and stir until all parts are dissolved. Add peppermint essential oil to the desired flavour level, for a noticeable minty tingle we would recommend using 50-60 drops or more. Pour the lip balm into lip tubes or slider tins.

This recipe makes 250 grams or over 50 lip tubes. You can keep the balm in a sealed plastic container for melting at a later date if you don't want to use all of the mixture at once. Keep in mind that many of these ingredients and packaging options are on sale right now for our Customer Appreciation Sale!

  1. I am so excited to make this home made lip gloss! I've spent way to much money on cosmetic lip balm in the stores and i'm so excited that I get to create my own now:)) Wow this looks delicious for my dry lips.
