Shiny Spearmint Lip Balm

Posted on


Castor oil added to this lip balm helps keep lips soft and shiny for hours. There are many edible flavouring oils designed for lip products on the market such as chocolate, strawberry and toffee if spearmint is not to your taste. Or you can divide the mixture into small lip balm pots and have a variety of flavours.



You will need:


18g cocoa butter

18g grated beeswax

12g castor oil

24g sweet almond oil

10 drops spearmint essential oil




Melt the cocoa butter, beeswax, castor oil and sweet almond oil in a double boiler or bain marie until melted. Remove from heat and stir in the spearmint essential oil. Pour into a clean glass jar.
