Lip Balm - Homemade - Kirstie's

.... have been watching Kirstie's Homemade Christmas - as I love anything crafty.  This 'recipe' was on the first programme - thought it was such a nice idea, and don't think the ingredients will be too difficult to get hold of  ....

8g. beeswax
10g. cocoa butter
25ml. sunflower oil
3 ml. calendula oil
a few drops of grapefruit essential oil (if desired) or chocolate (!)
1/2 tsp. pink 'mineral' powder to add sparkle or one square of dark chocolate.

1. Melt the beeswax, cocoa butter and sunflower oil over a very low heat, for about one min. - either in a bain-marie or saucepan.
2. Add 3ml.calendula oil.
3. Add few drops of the flavouring.
4. Pour into a small tin or little plastic pots (as above).  (You can buy these at Boots.)

This will keep for about a year.
