    Could you omit the beeswax from recipe 1 and 2 or would it not set it/harden? Just thinking for a vegan, I *think* they don’t like using beeswax?

    • Jamie

      Don’t know about omitting, but to make vegan friendly you should be able to substitute Candilla wax for a vegan friendly version. I’ve heard some people use it in place just because it doesn’t melt as easily in heat

    Could those lipsticks be from Savannah Bee Company? They look like them, maybe the blackberry and tupelo.

    Just for clairification: in the first recipe you site honey twice. Once to heat and once to whisk in as its cooling. I am confused.

    Im alergic to coconut oil. So what do I do. Also do you have to beez wax?

    I’ve had great results melting a tbsp. each of beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter (lotion bar recipe) then pouring into new empty chapstick tube containers (found on Ebay 10 for $2)but I would love to try these recipes for something different. I’m sure you can buy the empty tins on Ebay as well.

    I am confused with the instructions for the lavender lip balm. At what point is the honey added? During the warming process or afterward as you are whisking in a pan of cold water?

    I’m definitely going to try that minty chocolate one. Sounds promising.

  10. Thanks, these are great. I have tried lip balm several times and haven’t quite found the right consistency. I kind of combined the 1st and last recipe because I have a really good Shea butter I wanted to use. I used geranium and lavender essential oil ( doTERRA) for moisture retention and healing.
    Love the slight splash of color the cocoa adds

    I just made the last lip balm on the page (sans the cocoa powder since I didn’t have any) and it turned out great!

    One thing, though, perhaps it was because of the type of honey I used, I used a raw honey that’s somewhat hard and added it after I took the mix off of the double boiler, but it wouldn’t mix no matter how much I stirred. Luckily, it just settled as little liquid drops to the bottom and didn’t pour out until the very last dreg. The lip balm, otherwise, turned out GREAT! It’s so very moisturizing, and even without the cocoa powder, the cocoa butter gives it enough of a mild, chocolaty fragrance.

    I made the choc mint lip balm today, it smells and feels amazing :) I will be looking forward to using it everyday and it made a fair amount which will last me for over a year. Thank you.

    I need a high spf lip balm recipe. I’ve heard carrot seed oil is good for it’s spf properties but I cannot find a recipe. Also…do I use carrot seed oil or carrot seed essential oil? Is there a difference? I appreciate any help you can give me on this!
