I’m a huge fan of peppermint lip balm. I am especially fond of that fresh, tingly feeling you get from using true peppermint oil. Yum.
But when Burt’s Bees got bought out by a bigger company and changed their formula, I knew I had to make my own. And guess what?
I made it BETTER. No joke.
I love it! And my friends love it, too!
My peppermint lip balm is fresh, hydrating, has that distinctive peppermint tingle, and leaves your lips supple and shining!
The ingredients are so good you could eat them! (And one of my friend’s son actually has eaten TWO TUBES of my lip balm, so I have to keep giving her more!)
Best of all, it’s good for you, it costs less than a dollar to make each one—including the tube—and if you have extra ingredients on hand, you can use them to make my homemade deodorant or homemade body butter!
Peppermint Lip Balm Recipe (Makes 12)
Melt shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and beeswax in a double boiler on the lowest heat possible. Remove from heat and then add peppermint oil. Pour into tubes and let sit with caps off for 24 hours. Cap and enjoy!
