*Use an extra teaspoon or two of beeswax if you prefer a firmer lip balm or slightly less if you prefer a softer balm. As is, the lip balm is perfect for me – it’s creamy and coats nicely without squishing when you use it. If you’re striving for a particular texture, you can put a few drops of the melted mixture on a piece of parchment paper and let it harden in the refrigerator for a quick test before transferring the remaining mixture to the tubes.
**For the scent, I stick with peppermint, although Libby has used orange and a combination of orange and peppermint, which is quite nice, too. I think spearmint and other citrus flavors would be appealing, and adding vanilla to any of these scents would likely be lovely, too.
