Beeswax Lip Balm   1)   1 part beeswax dry weight     2) 4 parts food grade oil by liquid volume  3) few drops of perpermint oil

In a double boiler, melt beeswax and oil over medium heat. Stir continuously with a wisk until wax has melted, remove frome heat and add oil stirring as mixture cools. Then pour into your tubes and let cool.

I read this recipe I have not tried it. I guess you could use a different scent of oil. Good Luck!

Tip: For EXTREMELY good smelling chap stick ----> Take a 2cm by 2cm chunk of orange peel and grind it up into a juice. Put that in the sun to dry and you should get almost orange peel dust. Only take a little pinch and sprinkle that in the hot liquid of wax and oil. Then put it into your tubes. Its so deliciuos smelling you can eat it. ( By the Way, Its edible! :D )
