I have not tried this yet but am going to make it tomorrow. I'll post on how it goes. I have been looking for a natural lip balm recipe using beet juice as a colorant rather than artificial ones and found this one in a book i own. The amounts were wrongly written so i have altered them how i think they should be (sorry if its wrong!)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup light oil, such as sweet almond oil
  • 18 cup grated beeswax
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 12-1 teaspoon essential oil
  • 3 drops beet juice, for color


  1. melt wax and oil in double boiler.
  2. Beat very well( electric mixer) until creamy.
  3. add honey, oil and beet juice.
  4. beat again
  5. enjoy.
