Beeswax Lip Balm Recipe

Holly and I will be making beeswax lip balm with these ingredients.  We are currently assembling all our supplies to try to only buy the extras we need.  Holly is now extracting and processing her beeswax from her own hives.  Instead of buying materials, she is using what she and I have, such as used tights and old steel pans.  She's even made her own oh-so-delicious vanilla extract!  We are only purchasing one thing: 40 half-ounce lip balm tins from Ruhl Bee Supply.  There will be more to share on all of this soon!

1 cup shredded beeswax
14 oz. coconut oil
5 T honey
5 T pure vanilla extract
