A moisturizing and natural chapstick that can be made at home!

Ingredients:

-1 tbsp beeswax
-2 tbsp coconut oil
-2 tbsp shea butter
-20 drops of essential oil of choice (optional)

Directions:

1. Place the beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil into a small jar. 
2. Fill a medium sized pot with a couple of inches of water and place over medium heat. Once the water is simmering, place the jar inside the pot (keep the lid loosely on the jar) and carefully shake the jar to incorporate all the ingredients. 
3. Once all the ingredients are melted, stir well and turn off heat, but leave jar in the water to keep warm. 
4. Stir in the essential oils.
5. Using a glass dropper, fill the chapstick containers. Re-top the containers after 2 minutes because they will start to settle. Let sit for several hours until hardened. 

How to Use:

Rub onto lips and enjoy! Use as often as desired.

Notes:

-You can use cocoa butter instead of shea butter if you want a chocolate chapstick flavor.
-This will make a medium firm lip chap. If you prefer a firmer and longer lasting lip chap, you can add more beeswax (~1 tbsp). If you prefer a smoother and more oily lip chap, you can reduce the amount of beeswax.
