Hemp & honey lip balm


Ingredients:

  • 10g beeswax or candelilla wax

  • 10g cocoa butter

  • 15g shea butter

  • 4 teaspoons (20ml) sweet almond oil

  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) hemp oil

  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) honey

Equipment:

  • Bain marie or double boiler

  • Metal spoon

  • Small glass jug

  • Stick blender or milk frother

  • 15ml jars or lip balm tins

Instructions:

  1. Melt the wax and the butters in bain marie along with the almond oil

  2. Add hemp oil and honey and stir gently. As honey is water (not oil) soluble, it will not totally dissolve with heating and it will need to be mixed in the next step

  3. Remove from heat and pour the hot mixture into a jug. Blend with a stick blender until the mixture is thicker but still pourable

  4. Pour the mixture into the jars or tins to set
