Beeswax is a great base ingredient for lip balms, because of its high water-holding capacity that helps to retain natural skin moisture, making it great for chapped lips.
The great thing about making your own lip balm is that you know exactly what it is made of and (bonus!) this recipe can also be used as a cuticle cream, eye cream or carefully placed on a healing cut or scrap. This is essentially a 2 part oil to 1 part beeswax ratio that I've found has worked really well.
This simple recipe will result in a great lip balm and can be adjusted to create a custom salve that better suits your needs. If you prefer a thicker mixture, use slightly more beeswax than oil, which is especially useful if you find yourself using the balm on your skin. Keep in mind that this recipe will yield 6 oz of product, which can fill twelve 0.5 oz tubes or multiple tins or containers depending on their size.
