This is a really easy to make recipe for lip balm, using home grown honey and beeswax! Containers are available from ebay or from Silverlock.
After harvesting the honey, which is then filtered and bottled, the wax cappings need to be cleaned and rendered. We have tried a few ways of doing this but this is the most successful here.
Then making lip balm is easy! We followed this recipe, but omitted the peppermint oil, the slight honey taste is much nicer, and used olive oil rather than almond oil.
The result is a lovely textured lip balm that keeps the lips nice and soft! It lasts well (doesn’t melt) when left in the car, but is easy to use.
