  • 1 tbsp beeswax
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp castor oil
  • 15 drops of spearmint essential oil

Tutorial Steps:

  1. Add the cocoa butter and beeswax to a double boiler over low heat and melt until combined
  2. Add the olive oil and castor oil and stir, making sure not to overheat
  3. Remove from heat and add the spearmint essential oil
  4. Pour into lip balm tubes or any other type of container you’d like to use

Make sure the mixture has fully cooled inside of the containers before attempting to use it since using it while it’s still too hot can burn your lips and spill since the mixture won’t be fully solidified yet.
