A lovely balm, I received this recipe from a friend at a gift basket making party where some of the baskets contained homemade products like this.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons almond extract
  • 3 -5 drops peppermint extract


  1. Fill a small saucepan 1/3 full with hot water.
  2. Place all the above in a pottery creamer.
  3. Use a creamer because it's easy to pour.
  4. Set the creamer in the saucepan and heat the water until all the ingredients are melted.
  5. Pour hot mixture into small (purse size?) jars.
  6. Close tightly.
  7. Store in fridge.

This is a wonderful lip balm. My lips feel so soft after using this. I just made another batch for a friend and I'm sure she'll love it just as much as I did. Thank You for the recipe! Special thanks to Uncle Miller for sending me a bottle of peppermint extract, without which I wouldn't be able to make this.
