Beauty trick a day - lip balm

Lipbalms are universally the same, some wax and some oil. So technically there is nothing that is special in making a lip balm. However I will give you my recipe of it.

You will need

Beeswax- 1 teaspoon (+1/2 teaspoon if you want a waxy balm)
Cocoa Butter - 2 teaspoon
Olive oil- 2 tablespoon
Sunflower oil- 2 tablespoon
Almond oil - 1 teaspoon
Sesame oil - 1 teaspoon
Honey -1/2 teaspoon (for very dry lips)
Essential oil- 2-3 drops (Lavender, rose, orange , cinnamon are good bets)

In a microwave proof bowl heat the beeswax (you can do this over a bowl of hot water but beeswax takes a while to melt). Once the beeswax has melted add the cocoa butter. Cocoa butter will start melting in the heat of beeswax itself. Yet microwave the mixture for about 30 seconds, just so you can mix it in well. Now add the oils, mix well and microwave for about 20 seconds. C

Add honey and/or essential oil when the balm is beginning to solidify. If the need be , just hold the bowl containing the balm over boiling water for a bit in case honey is taking time to blend in.

Transfer to a small jar. This makes a fair amount of balm. I like the balm to be very rich in oils, so I add a fair amount of these. In case you want the balm more waxy , add half a teaspoon more of beeswax to the mixture in the beginning itself.
