Coco-Calm Lip Balm
by Mountain Rose Herbs

1 tablespoon organic unrefined coconut oil
4 organic cocoa butter wafers
2 tablespoons organic sunflower oil
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon beeswax
10 drops organic lavender essential oil
5 drops organic clary sage essential oil
a few drops of vitamin E oil 

Place chopped beeswax and oils in a small pot or glass measuring cup and gently heat in the top of a double boiler until the beeswax has melted.  Once melted, remove from the stove top and add essential oils and vitamin E oil. Immediately pour the mixture into lip balm containers.  Allow to cool completely before placing the caps onto the lip balm containers.  Makes enough to fill 10 lip balm tubes, 6 of 1/4 ounce plastic jars or three 1/2 ounce tins or plastic jars. 

Thanks Mountain Rose Herbs for this recipe!!!
