If you are still puzzling over what to give your best friends for Christmas, make some lip balms! They just can’t be more relevant and necessary than they’re right now, in cold days. And they’re incredibly easy to make! The supplies are 4 tbsp caster oil, 4 tsp beeswax pellets, 1 tsp carnauba wax, 16 drops of peppermint essential oil, 10 drops of vanilla essential oils, a double boiler, a small spatula or metal spoon, lip balm tubes and rectangle labels. Begin with melting the oil and waxes in the double boiler. Then remove from the heat, add essential oils, and stir well. Carefully pour the melted oil and wax into each balm tube, filling only halfway. Once it has set, top up the rest of the tube (if tube’s top is uneven, level it out carefully using a heat gun or lighter). Happy holidays!
