Darlene's Healing Lip Balm Recipe

Submitted By:

Darlene of PennaFurnace, PA


1 tsp. beeswax pellets
1 tsp. cocoa butter (previously ground in food processor for easy measuring)
1/2 tsp. jojoba oil
1/2 tsp. Nature's Gate vitamin E oil (This is what I had on hand to use. It is vit. E in a base of grapeseed and calendula oils. I'm sure you can substitute with a similar oil that has healing properties.)
5 drops (or less) peppermint essential oil
2 drops tea tree essential oil


Melt everything except essential oils in a double boiler. Remove from heat. Let cool slightly before adding essential oils. Pour into lip balm tin, cap tightly and let cool.
(I like this in a small lip balm tin that I keep in my front pants pocket. Body heat softens the lip balm slightly, but is still good when at room temperature. I'm not sure, but it may be too soft in a lip balm tube that's kept in the front pants pocket. In this case, a little more beeswax may help.)

Customer Testimonial

"I have never written a thank you to a company before, but I just had to let you know that I am impressed with the items I received and the extreme speed in which I received them. It only took 2 days to receive my order from FNWL. That's amazing and is certainly a plus when trying to run my business. To compare, I placed an order with a different supplier 2 days before I placed my FNWL order. I received my FNWL order 5 days ago, but am still waiting to receive my order from the other supplier. Thank you."
