30+ drops peppermint essential oil
Metal tins
Spatula
Plastic Straw or pipette

Directions:
Melt beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler or small glass bowl over a small pot of boiling water, stirring constantly until melted.
Remove pan from heat but keep over the still-hot water to keep the mixture melted.
Add essential oils to your preference. I just added peppermint in this recipe. I recommend adding a few drops at a time and testing a tiny amount on your arm to make sure the scent is to your liking.
Once you’ve added the essential oils, use the pipette or a dropper to fill the lip balm tins. This must be done quickly since the mixture will start to harden as soon as it is removed from the heat.
Let tins sit at room temperature for several hours until cooled and completely hardened before capping them.
