Is it teething time for your little one?


If you ask any woman to list the essentials they always carry around in their handbag, their lip balm is likely to be right up there – especially when the days get that little bit colder.


We’re definitely among that group, and tend to spend quite a pretty penny on the stuff – namely, because we’re always losing it! Well, now armed with the following super-simple and delicious recipe for our own DIY balm, we will never run out again.


What you need:

  • A few drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 2 tbsp. almond oil
  • 1 tbsp. organic beeswax (try a health or craft store for this)
  • Small glass jar or tumbler
  • Dropper
  • A container of your choice



What to do:

  1. Place the almond oil and beeswax into the glass jar, and pop the lid on.
  2. Fill the saucepan with water, place it on a medium-high heat, and heat it up until the wax melts.
  3. Take the jar off the heat and give it a stir, then add in the peppermint oil using your dropper.
  4. Pour the mixture into your container of choice, allow it to cool for a few hours, and it’s ready to go.


Tip: Once you’ve become a dab-hand at the making of your lip balm, you can tweak the recipe to your heart’s content – why not try adding a few lipstick shavings to give your balm some colour?
