Easy-Peasy Homemade Lip Balm
Take 1 tbsp of beeswax-grated, with one tbsp coconut oil, one tsp of honey, one Vitamin E capsule contents emptied into the mix. Melt slowly in a small pan, whisking until melted and combined. At this stage, you can add a flavour like almond oil or peppermint oil if you want. You can also add some colouring, either beetroot powder or food colouring. Pour into small pots, leave to cool and solidify—now ready to use.
