Author Debra Maslowski



  1. Melt all of these vanilla mint lip balm ingredients in the double boiler (or a bowl placed over some hot water).
  2. Check the consistency by letting some harden on the spoon. If it's too soft, add a bit more wax. If it's too hard, add more butter or oil.
  3. When you have it where you like it, pour into lip balm tubes or pots.


Wax can vary a lot in hardness, so this may take a little playing around. The great thing is that you can melt it many times and it won't affect the mix. If you don't want to make the infused oil, use plain grapeseed oil and add a few drops of Peppermint essential oil and vanilla absolute.
