As an extra special treat the girls have made me some honey lip balm.
The recipe is very simple and it takes about 5 mins to make - it does involve heat so probably only suitable for the older ones or heavily supervised young ones.
1 Tbsp Beeswax
6 Tbsp Sweet Almond oil
1 Tbsp Honey
2/3 drops essential oil of choice
Optional - 1 Vitamin E capsule
- In a small pan melt the beeswax and oil together and remove from heat.
- Add honey and mix until it is well blended
- Allow to cool slightly (stirring all the time to prevent setting) then add vitamin E oil and essential oil
- Pour into containers
