Mamie Made Christmas: Lip Balm Gifts

I had this post up on my old blog I thought that since I will be making these for Christmas gifts it would be nice to share it here as part of my Mamie Made Christmas Series.
 I hope you enjoy this simple make !!

There has been lots of making going on here lately I've been trying to make a few new things that I've never made before.
 Lip balm is really simple to make all that needs to be done is melt down your ingredients in a double boiler and then pour into the vessel you would like to use. if you were just making it for yourself you could use a nice recycled jar or even some tupperware. I have made some to give as gifts and didn't have anything nice to put it in so I bought some, they are fairly inexpensive and are easy to find on the net.
I got mine here at Aussie Soap Supplies, they also have the other ingredients if you are looking for them.
The Lip balm recipe I used is:
1 tbsp of beeswax
2 tbsp of shea butter
2 tbsp of coconut oil

This made quite a bit of lip balm I even tried making some coloured lip balm. I still have a few little pots to fill so next time I am going to try adding a little honey to my balm.
