Fall is here and winter is coming which means dry lips are about to become one of your top beauty concerns. What you need is a lip balm that is convenient and nourishing and if at all possible, tinted to the color of your choice.

- 1 tsp beeswax
- 1/4 tsp coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp shea butter
- 1/4 tsp jojoba oil
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Piece of lipstick for color (optional)
- Empty EOS container
Place a heat-safe bowl over a sauce pan with a bit of water in it (double-boiler) at a medium heat.
Then begin adding the beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, jojoba oil and olive oil into the bowl.
As it begins to melt into a creamy paste, add a little piece of lipstick to the mixture and stir it in.
Once you are satisfied with the color and scent of your balm, pour it into the top of your EOS container and a little bit in the bottom.
Close the container with and let it sit for five minutes at room temperature and then freeze for ten minutes.
Pop the hardened balm out of the top of the lid gently.
Use a lighter to heat the wax up just a little bit so you will be able to secure it into the base.
Now that it is secure, you are all set to hydrate those lips!
