The second lip balm recipe I just had to try and make was Orange Creamsicle Lip Balm.
These lip balms are just so easy to make. I love it!
The Orange Creamsicle has to be my favorite!
I plan to make up a few more lip balm recipes and add them to Christmas gifts this year.

How to Make Orange Creamsicle Lip Balm
Step 1: Measure out beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter and place them in your glass measuring cup. (photo shows each one individually)
Step 2: Fill your large saucepan with about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water and bring the water to a boil.
Step 3: Once the water is boiling, place the glass measuring cup with the ingredients into the center of the large saucepan.
Step 4: Stir every few minutes until everything is melted.
Step 5: Once it is all melted, remove from heat and let it sit for 3 minutes. While waiting the 3 minutes, line up our lip balm containers so you can fill them.
Step 6: Add wild orange essential oil and pure vanilla extract and stir.
Step 7: Pour mixture into the lip balm containers and let them cool before capping. Be careful not to overfill. It is easy to do, trust me.
Step 8: Once the lip balm is cooled, you can put the caps on and add labels. (Keep reading to get the free printable)
