The older girls and I did a mini balm-making workshop last week. It was easy and fun, and now we know how to make our own body/lip balm! I used the opportunity to talk about proportions, measuring,  ingredients, and chemicals. We used Shea butter, coconut oil, local honey, beeswax, and peppermint oil. Their lips tend to stay dry, and using their own balm might encourage them to not forget to put it on every morning. A new magazine that I purchased, Willow + Sage, gave the tip to use an old mint tin   as the container. Works perfectly!
