Peppermint Kissed Lip Tint

Fresh-Picked Beauty's Peppermint Kissed Lip Tint
Peppermint Kissed Lip Tint
makes 4 tubes of lip tint

6 grams Shea Butter
9 grams Coconut Oil
8 grams Beeswax (grated fine)
small piece of your favorite all-natural lip stick (I used about 1/8 teaspoon)
2 400 I.U. Vitamin E caps squeezed
10 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil

Add the Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Beeswax into a metal or glass jar set in a double boiler. Heat the ingredients to 150 degress (beeswax will be fully melted). Hold for five minutes. Remove from heat, melt and blend in the piece of lipstick. Squeeze in the Vitamin E and add in the Peppermint Essential Oil.  Pour into 1/4 ounce lip balm tubes and allow to cool. Keep the finished product under 75 degrees and use within 3 months.

You will find the ingredients over at Mountain Rose Herbs.
