Fill a shallow pan with about an inch and a half of water and bring to a boil.

Toss your shea butter, beeswax, and coconut oil into a heatsafe glass dish. Place the glass dish in the boiling water. The water should not be close to getting in the dish.

Let the ingredients melt, stirring occasionally to help the beeswax melt.

Once melted, remove from heat and let cool slightly. Mix in the peppermint essential oil.

Pour into your lip balm tube or a shallow tin.

Use daily to make your lips smooth and beautiful!
