|Ohh! Just this recipe’s name perks my interest. This is a fabulous recipe. It is a firm but easily applied lip balm. It smells wonderful. I love honey and this recipe is right up my alley because it contains honey! I can already hear the questions. Wait! Doesn’t honey contain water? How do you get it to blend into your oils? The answer? This recipe also contains lanolin. The lanolin acts as an emulsifier to blend your oils and honey for a scrumptious lip balm!

Here is the recipe for making a 100 gram batch.
I place my lip balm jars or tubes into the refrigerator to cool. Do not place them in the freezer! We only want the lip balm to cool quickly not freeze instantly.
Weigh all ingredients except the honey into a microwave safe container. We do not want to microwave our honey because it will burn and not incorporate into our mixture of oils.
Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly. Add the honey once all of the oils have been melted. Pour the liquid mixture into the cool lip balm containers. Allow the solution to solidify. Cap and label. Enjoy this scrumptious recipe!
Remember: Do not add honey prior to melting your oils. The honey will burn. If your honey burns, it will not incorporate into your oils. Lets prevent this fantastic recipe from becoming a failed batch.
