It’s no secret that I love making lip balms! My recipes wouldn’t be complete without the tried and true peppermint lip balm recipe! And for a bonus, you can use a small or large Altoid tin! They are at every check out aisle. Plus, they are so cute! We could all use a “curiously strong” all-natural peppermint lip balm, am I right?!
DIY Peppermint Lip Balm
- Fill a medium sized pot half way full with water.
- Place a glass pyrex measuring cup in the water and add grapeseed oil, shea butter and beeswax.
- Allow to melt.
- Remove from heat.
- Add peppermint essential oil.
- Pour into Altoid tin.
**Beware of the Altoid tin’s hinges. They are about 1/2 way down the back side of the tin. If you fill your balm above the hinges your balm will leak out! It’s a confusing mess, trust me!!**
This is fun and easy and a great gift because everyone likes a Peppermint Lip Balm! It’s perfect for winter time because the added boost of shea butter will help protect and moisturize your lips like crazy! This recipe makes enough balm for a small Altoid tin, but beware of the hinges!
