MRH Pomander Lip Balm

I'm working on clearing out some excess papers right now and one of those things is catalogs. Before I put it in the burn pile I looked through the Mountain Rose Herbs catalog and found a couple of recipes. I'm listing them so I can use them in the future.

1 tbsp organic cocoa butter
2 tbsp organic sunflower oil
1 tbsp organic olive oil
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp beeswax
15 drops organic sweet orange essential oil
5 drops organic clove essential oil
a few drops of vitamin E oil

Coarsely chop the beeswax or use beeswax pastilles. Place beeswax, butter, and oils in a small pot or glass Pyrex measuring cup and gently heat in the top of a double boiler until the beeswax and butters have melted. Remove from the stove top and add essential oils and vitamin E oil. Immediately pour the mixture into lip balm containers. Allow to cool completely before placing caps onto the lip balm containers. your lip balm is finished. makes approximately 10 lip balm tubes.
