Introduction: Copy Cat Burt's Bees Lip Balm

Who loves Burt's Bees lip balm? I do! Well, here is my recipe for copy cat Burt's Bees lip balm that you will love! Best part is, it is a fraction of the cost to make it than buy it!

What you will need: (This recipe makes 20 lip balms, so adjust as needed - a great gift idea too)

Lip Balm containers

Mason jar

1/2 ounce beeswax (grated)

2 ounces coconut oil

4 drops rosemary essential oil

20 drops peppermint essential oil

Directions: Put the coconut oil and beeswax in a mason jar and microwave for about 1-2 minutes or until melted but not scolding hot. You can also add the mason jar to a pot of boiling water to melt the ingredients as a healthier method. I make sure to use a mason jar designated to making lip balm since the excess beeswax will stick and I do not recommend pouring it down your sink.

Next, add the essential oils and swirl until well mixed.

Add to your lip balm containers and let it harden sitting out or in the fridge :)
