Chapstick

1 part cocoa butter (can use shea butter)
1 part coconut oil
I part beeswax

Optional few drops candy flavor oil and few drops non-alcohol stevia extract

Melt together and stir well. Pour into tubes.
  1. Melt the beeswax, cocoa, and shea butter in a double boiler.
  2. Add the hemp oil, almond oil, and honey, and stir until it turns into a liquid consistency.
  3. Add honey to this mixture.
  4. Blend the ingredients using a milk frother.
  5. Once it reaches medium-thick consistency, pour the balm into jars to set.
Here are some more brand new things to try. (I just love DIY!) :D:D:D

I don't add sweeteners to my chapstick as it encourages licking which is counter productive. I add stevia extract to my lip gloss. One of my nieces eats the stuff. Then she stole her sister's. They like the unsweetened orange flavored chapstick just fine and use it properly, then ask Mom for more when out. Mom has a stash in her freezer.

I haven't tried that yet... But it seems so powerful... especially when you added honey into the mix... I know honey has a lot of health benefits... I hope I can get more DIY's from you in the future... :):):)
