Making your own lip balm

Making your own lip balm lipbalm2

Animals such as the albatross swallow lip balm tubes and sticks so we made our own that doesn’t need a plastic container that they could eat, and it can break down fast. These are the ingredients:
1 Tbsp of beeswax
2 Tbsp of cocoa butter
2 Tbsp of coconut oil
20 drops of essential oil
Steps:
1: Put a bit of water at the bottom of a pot.
2: Put the stove on a high temperature.
3: Place a bowl over the pot.
4: Put all of the ingredients in the bowl and melt.
5: Pour in to small glass containers.
6: And leave to set.

    I just need to get some oils and small glass jars, and I’m ready to give it a go!
