Homemade Lip Balm

Homemade lip balm.  All natural ingredients to nourish your dry, chapped kisser.  Here's how I made mine {very loose recipe}:
About an egg sized amount of beeswax.

Melt the beeswax in a double boiler.

When the beeswax is melted, add four heaping spoonfuls of coconut oil to the double boiler and stir until melted.

Remove from heat and add about 20-30 drops of vanilla essential oil.  Stir.

Pour immediately into small jars.  
{My jars are about 2 oz each and I filled six.  
If you use the commercial lip balm tins, it would likely fill a couple dozen}

Store them in a cool place to set up.  Trust me when I say don't touch them for about 12 hours or you'll end up with a giant finger print in the perfectly poured jars.  {Oh darn, I guess I'm keeping one for myself!!}  When they've set, put the lid on and tie on a pretty ribbon or add a label like this one.
