Combine the beeswax, coconut oil, and almond oil and heat slowly in a double boiler over low heat until liquified, stirring often. Use your candy thermometer to ensure the heat doesn’t pass 180 degrees.

Remove from heat and let the mixture cool slightly, then add the vitamin E oil (if in capsule form, puncture each capsule and squeeze in the contents).

Stir the mixture for 5 minutes, then add the essential oil.

Stir again, then pour into individual containers.

Let the lip balm set overnight before adding labels/using.

Piece of cake, right? Almost. Like any DIY project, it may take some trial and error.
