Orange Vanilla Honey Lip Balm

This recipe for homemade lip balm will make approximately four small containers of lip.

4 tablespoons of olive oil or grapeseed oil

1 tablespoon of grated beeswax

1 Drop of honey

1/4 teaspoon of vitamin D oil or three punctured liquid vitamin D capsules

7 drops of orange essential oil

2 drops of vanilla extract

In a double boiler warm the 4 tablespoons of oil with the grated beeswax. Warm over low heat slowly.
Stir until the beeswax is completely melted. Remove from heat and quickly whisk in essential oil, vitamin E and vanilla extract. Set the container in a shallow pan of ice water and continue to whisk as you add a drop of honey. Once the honey is blended, quickly transfer the lip balm to your containers. Let set for three hours.
