Olive Oil Lip Balm Recipe

This lip balm recipe coats your lips with a protective layer of wonderful
olive oil (the miracle oil).

Weigh all ingredients.

2 oz olive butter
1 ½ oz olive oil
1½ oz candelilla wax or beeswax
1 oz cocoa butter
5-10 drops of Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
5-10 drops rosemary oil extract (ROE)
1-2 teaspoons total of ginger essential and grapefruit essential oil

In a very small pan, add the beeswax and melt over the lowest setting.
Once melted add the cocoa butter chunks and shea butter, let melt, and
then add the sweet almond oil. Heat through. Add the Vitamin E oil.
Remove from stove and pour into a glass measuring cup for easy pouring
into lip balm containers.

Add the flavor oil, or if you would like to make more than one flavor with
this recipe, separate into different glass jars or cups and then add the
flavor oils. Adjust the amount of flavor oil accordingly. Stir flavor oils in
and pour into lip balm containers. If the mixture starts to harden, place in
the microwave for a few seconds to re-melt and then pour.

Recipe makes 6 ozs
