• 1/4 cup coconut oil
• 1/4 cup olive oil
• 1/2 cup grated beeswax
• 4 drops mint, bee balm, or other favorite essential oil

Gently melt the oils and beeswax together in a double boiler over medium heat. Remove from heat; add the essential oils and mix. While still warm, pour into small jar or container, and let cool.

To use, dab your finger in the balm and rub it on lips, even on elbows and knees to soften the skin.
